2010 Dodge Dakota Oil change Indicator Reset Procedure

If the oil is already changed and you have driven few miles say 100 or more and still the oil change indicator lights is not turning off then try this reset procedure.

The Procedure stated/mentioned in the Service manual.

To reset the oil change indicator system (after performing the scheduled maintenance) perform the following procedure:

1. Turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position.
NOTE: Do not start the engine.Just turn the ignition to ON.

2. Then Fully-press the accelerator-pedal slowly three times in 10 seconds.

3. After that turn the ignition switch to the “LOCK” position.

These will reset the oil change indicator light.

But if the indicator message illuminates when you start the vehicle, the oil change indicator system did not reset. If necessary, repeat this procedure.In some rare cases the procedure worked second or third time.

Its a simple procedure and following it correctly should definitely help,if the oil is recently changed.Don't try this procedure if the oil is not changed.

This details will help.
