It probably wasn't reset when the oil was last changed. Just reset it since you know your milage for your last change.

Or change the oil NOW at just over 3K and you'll KNOW what brand oil, etc. Plus you never know, never hurts to change it more often. Oil is cheap!

Turn the ignition key to RUN. (engine off)


Press the accelerator pedal to the floor 3 times in 5 seconds.

I don't pay any attention to the change oil light I just reset it when it comes on. Instead I use the trip function on the odometer to keep track of mileage since my last oil change. Change it every 3000 miles...I still can't get myself to trust those computers.
