Question How do I reset the oil change indicator?

Our GC had an oil change last week and the dealer didn't reset the "Oil Change Due" indicator in the center dash screen. They're an hour away and I'd hate to have to drive all the way over there just to have them reset the indicator.

Does anyone know how to reset the oil change due indicator?

Re: How do I reset the oil change indicator?

Thanks for the quick reply. Not sure what you meant, so I tried a couple of things:

- Pressed the break pedal before pushing the ignition button to start the car. Then pressed the accelerator three times within 10 seconds. It didn't work.

- Pushed the ignition button without pressing the break pedal, which activated accessory power. Then pressed the accelerator three times within 10 seconds. That didn't work either.

What am I doing wrong?

Check your manual. Iirc you turn on ignition then push gas pedal to the floor three times pretty quickly then turn off ignition

Re: How do I reset the oil change indicator?

That was it! I wasn't pushing the gas pedal all the way down to the floor.

I didn't think of checking the manual as manufacturers rarely publish information on resetting service indicators. Thanks for the info guys!

Re: How do I reset the oil change indicator?

Problem solved:
for those with a 3000 CRD (diesel) the procedure is as follows:
The ignition to RUN without starting the engine, hold the 'accelerator for more than 30 seconds (I have held down 35 seconds) after which the accelerator always hold 6 times the press brake, drop everything and turn off the framework.
Restart and reset was done.

Haha So your car was on and you were revving it? Probably got some looks Thanks for the laugh. Yea this should be done with car engine not started. Glad you got it done.

Ignition has to be in the run mode. Press the ignition start button to run. dont step on the brake pedal as to start the jeep.In run mode press the brake pedal 3 time in 10 sec .it will reset the oil change indicator.

"Brake pedal". No, should press the accelerator pedal.

Re: How do I reset the oil change indicator?

I had a new fleet car every 2 years back in my working days. I wish I could remember which car had a simple button to push to reset oil change meter.
