Seems like the warning has to be lit though.To reset the oil service light (a picture of a wrench and an oil can), use the following procedure:
1. With the ignition in the off position, press the brake and accelerator pedals.
2. For keyed vehicles, turn the key to the accessory position; for pushbutton start vehicles, press the Start/Stop button once quickly. Do not start the engine.
3. Press the accelerator and brake pedals fully for 20 seconds.
4. “Engine Oil Change Due Next Service” and the oil service light will display.
5. Turn the vehicle off. The message and lights will be cleared.
I have 6 coupons for half off oil changes that I got whenever I first purchased the car. They gave me them since I had the major oil leak. I tried using one today and got a, "We only accept those on the first oil change" reply... I'm soooooo pissed!Yeh, my dealer seems to forget to reset the oil monitoring system too and everytime I call him on it, he apologizes and gives me another free oil change. I have the PB Start on my Fiesta. Whether you have a key or the PB Start, put the ignition to the 'On' position. Press both the brake pedal and accelerator fully for 20 seconds until 'Engine Oil Change Due Next Service' and the icon (wrench with oil lamp) appears. The instructions are noted in my manual on pg. 23 under 'Instrument Cluster'. They are wrong however for owners who have the PB start.
That's what I'm saying. The Owner's Manual doesn't offer accurate instructions for those with the PB start. I have the PB start and the way I reset the monitoring system is by performing the following:I've been trying to clear mine since it lit up over 3 months ago. I'd had my oil changed at 6000 miles. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your point of view) just a short, quick tap on my start button starts my engine so it doesn't clear the code.
