Turn the ignition key to the RUN position. Fully push and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. If the CHANGE OIL SOON light flashes 2 times, the system is reset. However, if the light comes on and stays on for 5 seconds, the system did not reset. Repeat the procedure if the system does not reset.

My ABS AND Brake lights and change oil light is on


Lets start with what is the year make and model ??
If the ABS light is on, you would need to have the computer scanned to get the trouble codes so you would know what component to test.
The brake warning light could be telling you the hydraulic brakes are low on fluid, or the parking brake is not completely off.
You would need to reset the change oil reminder, if it is a red oil light, it could be telling you the oil pressure is low.

2001 chrysler town & country oil light is on


If you are taking the car to the garage or a mechanic, mark the oil filter before leaving home to make sure the filter is changed. After the oil has been changed when you return home you can check the filter to see if it was changed because the oil will only be changed. Since some mechanics know an owner of a vehicle will not check. Also, AutoZone have a very good quality oil for the chrysler town and country. Good Luck

Why does the change oil light soon keep coming on.


It comes on when the computer recognizes that you need a oil change. In older models, they tend to come on for no reason. If the oil is good and you know it doesn't need changed, don't worry about it. A oil changed is recommended at 3000 miles, but I have always went 5000. You car has a sensor that recognizes the oil command. You might be able to get rid of it by taking off the hot side post of the battery. If your not worried and you know the oil is ok, I wouldn't worry about it. Make sure the cap is on tight though. If you have anymore questions, please let me know. I am here to help. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I need to know how to fix the oil change light after a oil change on 2009 mercury grand marque. The panel on the car always says ''change oil soon'' but the oil has already been changed.


Hi!!

The person that changed the oil should have resetted the light.

Just drive to an AutoZone store, ask for somebody to check your vehicle computer codes, once they check them up, ask them to reset the change oil soon light, they would do this at no charge. This is a free service they offered to all their customers.

Don't forget to rate this post. Good luck!!

What does computer p1521 mean? How to correct it?


Computer code "P1521", is set when there is an engine oil condition. Check to see if the recommended old viscosity is being used and if you're following the oil change schedule. The oil could be contaminated or there may be an internal engine condition that may affect oil pressure. All of these conditions can set the code above.
The first thing I would recommend is to change the engine oil using the correct viscosity unless you know that the oil has been changed and it is the correct viscosity. Regardless the dealer or independent shop will have to use a scan tool to check the problem and to reset the light. I hope this will help

Change Oil light came on my 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid. I changed the oil my self and the light is still on. How do I make it go away?


The change oil light is controlled by the main engine computer which monitors driving conditions and clock hours. Based on this data it suggest an oil change interval. The system, however has no way to know the oil was changed unless you tell it so. In your owners manual there is a procedure to "reset" this process in the engines computer. its normally done by holding a button and turning the ignition key on at the same time. It should be listed under oil change in the owners manual.

My check engine light is on in my car. We change the oil ourselves. Is there some sort of code or something we need to do to let the engine system know that the oil has been changed?


No. The check engine light has nothing to do with changing the oil. The computer has detected a faulty sensor, or some other emission related problem and turned the light on. You will have to have the computer "scanned" to retrieve the code and determine what the problem is.
