Oil change light

Does it just pop up like 3000 miles after it has been reset? It doesn't actually sense that the oil is bad and comes on, does it?

I don't see an option to change it in the menu. Am I just missing it or what?

Re: Oil change light

I think you can only adjust it in a limited or overland ? im not sure. I know its 3000 miles though factory. Dont let the light pressure you, you can go a few more miles before change, just make sure your oil is clean. If you turn the key on half way press your gass pedal to the floor 3 times within 10 seconds and it will reset the life.

Re: Oil change light

Re: Oil change light

You should be able to set the interval at either 3K or 6K

Re: Oil change light

My understanding was the JGC oil change indicator is not a simplistic "# of elapsed miles", but rather based on an evaluation of several factors to provide a more realistic assessment. I would doubt an owner would be able to adjust any of the parameter thresholds.

SERIOUSLY ON AN 08, CMON hard to believe, even on a new one thats hard to swallow. so why would there be a way to change the interval if not solely mileage based
