Oil Life Reset
 
Is there an oil life reset on these trucks, just did an oil change but couldn't find anything in the manual on how to reset an oil life sensor.

What year, domestic US, or export? They all have them, but not all the same.

Owners manual should also let you know. From the '14 US JGC manual;

Vehicles Equipped With Keyless Enter-N-Go™
1. Without pressing the brake pedal, press the ENGINE
START/STOP button and cycle the ignition to the
ON/RUN position (do not start the engine.)
2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times
within 10 seconds.
3. Without pressing the brake pedal, press the ENGINE
START/STOP button once to return the ignition to the
OFF/LOCK position.

2013 Jeep SRT, didn't have any luck in the owners manual. Tells you what oil to use, how much and how often but nothing about resetting the oil life sensor.

Page 327 of the '13 SRT manual, version 4;

Vehicles Equipped With Keyless Enter-N-Go™
1. Without pressing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE
START/STOP button and cycle the ignition to the
ON/ RUN position (Do not start the engine).
2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times
within 10 seconds.
3. Without pressing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE
START/STOP button once to return the ignition to the
OFF/LOCK position.



Vehicles Not Equipped With Keyless Enter-N-Go™
1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position (Do
not start the engine).
2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times
within 10 seconds.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.


NOTE: If the indicator message illuminates when you
start the vehicle, the oil change indicator system did not
reset. If necessary, repeat this procedure.

Thanks for the info, is there supposed to be some sort of message that acknowledges that you have reset it? I did it a few times and didn't really get any message or beeps or anything to announce the reset?

Not sure about the '13. The '14 has a screen that shows % of life left. If you go to that screen it should show 100%.

I also tried finding a stats screen to see if it indicated the oil life but I didn't have any luck finding it listed anywhere...

You should have read the entire page. In your vehicle you get a message when you restart the car, only if the reset doesn't work.

"NOTE: If the indicator message illuminates when you

reset. If necessary, repeat this procedure."
