    Oil Change Indicator.

    Anyone have issues with the 'Oil Change' indicator?

    I change my oil/filter based on local sales and weather. It is changed before the recommended mileage, usually at half the recomended interval. I admit it's overkill and not necessary but,... I do it anyway.

    A month ago I changed oil/filter. A week later I got a 'Change Oil' warning. I'm used to this since my changes are out of sync with reality. I did the three throttle depression to kill the warning. This morning I got another indicator to change oil. Fearing a leakage I checked via dipstick. Oil was clean and at upper level.

    Why is the warning indicator popping back up again?

    When your oil was changed did you reset your "Oil Life" to 100%? (I'm not sure if pre-2015's had Oil Life percentage.)

    Not the oil can MIL. It is the digital vehicle info screen between the tach and speedo.
