Re: Oil Change Indicator Reset?

I got my first oil change at 3400 miles. The dealer wanted it done after 3000. The "I" came on my EVIC at 3500 miles. I reset the indicator. Why would the oil change indicator come on so soon? Is it programmed that way for the 1st change? With other vehicles, my indicators came in 6500-7000 miles on average. I thought Jeep had 8000 mile intervals on average. I normally get oil changes at 30%, but there is no way to monitor oil life.

The computer apparently monitors the way you drive the vehicle, and adjusts the oil change indicator accordingly.

To provide an update to this, the oil change indicator was successfully reset after the first oil change (even though it doesn't provide any indication of that), as it didn't come on until about 11000 miles on the odometer (about 8000 after I reset it).
