Resetting Change Oil message?
 
I normally change my own oil. How do I reset the "change oil" message that comes on when I start my 2012 Liberty?

Turn the ignition switch to ON (do not start) and fully depress the accelerator pedal slowly 3 times within 10 seconds and then turn the ignition switch to OFF, then start the Jeep. The message should be cleared.

Sanjuro77. You are a Genius genius genius is all I can say. My WK2 was showing this message. I called dealer for appointment after checking my mileage and the next due date for servicing they told me oil change not needed. If I wanted I can go over to them for resetting the message.

Tried as advised and the message is no longer showing. Thank a mil. You saved me a trip and some money, I guess.

Cheers,
Muzzy

Yep, just as the owners manual says:

"To reset the oil change indicator system (after performing the scheduled maintenance) refer to the following procedure.

1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON 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."
