By using several important factors in its calculations, the monitor helps reduce the cost of owning your vehicle and reduce environmental waste at the same time.

The following table is intended to provide examples of vehicle use and its impact on engine oil change intervals; it is provided as a guideline only. Actual engine oil change intervals will depend on several factors and will generally decrease with severity of use.

  1. Have followed this procedure many times for oil change reset – always worked until now –
    alert keeps coming on when I start my car – had oil/filter changed 2 days ago.

    1. Please tell me what Ford do you have, when was made, type, engine capacity, type of fuel, and horse power.

  2. Do you have a procedure to reset the oil change message in a Ford Ka mk2 (2011). I changed the oil and after a week this message comes on.

    I have a 2013 Ford Focus S. When I purchased this car in November, I soon got the reminder to change my oil due to my long commute to and from work. I followed the steps to reset the reminder after the first oil change I had done and I have driven 3,000 miles over what the suggested mileage was that I got it changed according to the Ford dealership that did my last oil change. Did I turn something off permanently turn the reminder off? Call me crazy but I actually want to be reminded of when to change my oil! Thanks

    Worked like a charm. Thank you. I looked on youtube and that video didn’t have the setting options for my 2013 focus like it said. Very frustrating! You were my last hope obewon kanobi!

    Just got my oil changed today (2014 Ford Focus) and even the ford employees can’t figure out how to get the oil light reminder to turn off. Seems there is an autostart on my car (when I purchased the car it had it) and when you turn the car to aux, it starts making the above routine unable to be done. I assume there is another way to reset since it didn’t have this reminder when I bought the car 7 months ago.
