"Service Oil"

So there is a service engine oil alert and picture that started coming up on the odometer display.

I just changed the oil with the correct oil and amount with filter 1k ago.

Im assuming that this is just a reminder and can be simply turned off.

Does anyone know how to do so?

Thanks,

Evan

I believe on our cars you turn the key to the on position not starting the car then you fully depress the gas pedal 3 times then turn the key off. When you turn it back on the message should be cleared. I'm not 100% positive but i believe that's the process. Check your manual if not.

As I recall, the manual said depress the accelerator one less times than you actually need to. (If it states two, press three - etc)

re

hahaha hit the gas pedal press the brake depress the clutch pull up on the ebrake then turn the radio on and press the traction control on and adjust your passenger side seat and blink you high beams 3 times. When the dealer told me what to do I was like your right and when I did it, it shut off I was like no ****. anyway turn key to the on position and hit the gas pedal 3 times slowly within 5 seconds. repeat if necessary---danfigg
