Turn the ignition key to the ON position, do not start the engine. Press the gas pedal all the way to the floor three times in 5 seconds or less time. Turn ignition off. Start engine and see if oil monitor light is out, repeat procedure if necessary.

Hello: Whoever changed the oil may not have reset the oil life indicator. Turn key on (engine off) push the accelerator all the way to the floor three times within 5 seconds. That should reset the oil life.

CHANGED MY OIL BECAUSE GAGE WAS READING LOW OIL PRESSURE AND I HAD NO OIL LIFE, TRIED TO RESET OIL LIFE TO 100%, WHICH I DID BUT ON MY DASH ITS STILL READING LOW OIL PRESSURE AND THE GAGE GOES BACK AND...


you either have a faulty oil pressure switch or you have poor oil pressure.if you find the oil pressure switch remove it and install a manuel oil pressure guage there. then you will see if it is the actual oil pressure weak or if it is the switch.

NEED TO RESET OIL CHANGE LIGHT


How to Reset the Engine Oil Life System
The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change the engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Whenever the oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where the oil is changed prior to a CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message being turned on, reset the system.
Always reset the engine oil life to 100% after every oil change. It will not reset itself. To reset the Engine Oil Life System:
Display the OIL LIFE REMAINING on the DIC.
Press and hold the SET/RESET button on the DIC for more than five seconds. The oil life will change to 100%.
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message comes back on when the vehicle is started, the Engine Oil Life System has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

How do i reset the change engine oil soon light ?


Emissionwiz is correct on how to reset the oil life monitor. Turn the ignition to accessory on. Pump the accelerator three times. The Oil Life Monitor will flash for about 5 seconds indicating it has been reset correctly.
The oil life monitor is a function of the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) that tracks operating temperature and engine revolutions per minute (rpm). Obviously since the light came on again the temperature is too high for the engine rpm. The incorrect oil weight or type could have been used and you need to change it with the correct weight and type. The other possibility is that a sensor or the PCM has a problem and you will need to have an OBDII code scanner to identify the problem. That will cost you around $70.00 if the mechanic knows what he is doing he can tell you the problem. I think changing the oil with the recommend weight and type again would be the cheaper route.
