Change engine oil message stays on

The "Change engine oil" message stays on despite having changed the oil and filter. Is there a button to push that will keep this message from coming on every time I start the car?

How reset oil change light 2011 charger


Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change
indicator system. The "Oil Change Due" message will
flash in the EVIC display for approximately 10 seconds
after a single chime has sounded to indicate the next
scheduled oil change interval. The engine oil change
indicator system is duty cycle based, which means the
engine oil change interval may fluctuate dependent upon
your personal driving style.

Unless reset, this message will continue to display each
time you cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN position. To
turn off the message temporarily, press and release the
MENU button. To reset the oil change indicator system
(after performing the scheduled maintenance), perform
the following procedure:

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.

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

Oo.com my 2004 ford crown victoria oil gauge goes from high to low and then stay under the low when i checked the oil it had plenty but it sounds like my motor is tapping please help!!!!!!!!!!!


You may need to change the oil filter; if it has become clogged, there will be such a pressure drop across it that the rest of the engine does not receive proper lubrication and the gauge reads low despite the presence of oil. Keep in mind that this gauge reads the oil pressure, not the oil level.
You may also have an issue with the oil pump itself, but the first thing to do is change the oil and filter. Often times, having this done at one of those jiffy lube places or something like that, they will change the oil but not the filter because they are lazy and figure you won't notice the difference.
Good Luck!

1998 Buick Park Ave., Check engine light is on, the computer displays Oil Change


The check engine light and the oil change indicator message are more than likely not related. You can toggle through the functions and get the oil life % to display then push the reset and hold it for a few seconds and it will reset the oil life indicator message. It should read oil life 100% after reset. (I would change the oil and filter if you have not already done so.)

The check engine light means you are setting an engine code, if it stays on, it is a hard code, if it is intermittant it is a soft code. Have it checked with a scan tool -- plug into your a.l.d.l. connector below the dash on the drivers side and read the code. Autozone and other places will do this for free.

LEXUS LS 2004 Maint Reqd (Master warning light) how I can switch off after change the oil engine?


You can disconnect your battery for 15 minutes or pull the fuse for an ECM or PCM fuse, but the best way is to visit any local repair shop. Most shops will have a universal Check Engine Light Code Reader that can quickly and safely reset check engine light trouble codes. It should take about 30 seconds.

Ask your local service center if they could reset the check engine light with a Check Engine Light Code Reader.
