Reset oil maintenance light on 2007 ford explorer
The directions that come with your vehicle are lousy, and the process stinks to. And keep in mind that if you do not press the buttons fast enough, or hold long enough, you must start over. It usually takes a few tries. Here’s how to do it:
1.) Press the TRIP/RESET button to cycle to “SETUP MENU HOLD RESET”.
2.) Now press and hold the button for 2 seconds until “RESET FOR SYSTEM CHECK” is displayed, then release.
3.) Imediately press and hold button for 2 more seconds until “Oil 100% RESET IF NEW” is displayed, then release.
4.) Imediately press button once to display “HOLD RESET IF NEW OIL” and release.
5.) Imediately press and hold button for 2 seconds until “OIL LIFE SET TO 100%” is displayed.
If you have done this dance properly, without delaying too long between steps, you are done. What a pain in the butt just to reset the oil maintenance light!!!
These servicing warning lights are normally reset (turned off) by the main dealer once they have finished servicing your vehicle.
If you have just serviced your vehicle yourself, or had it serviced in a local garage you may find that the 'service interval warning light' still needs to be reset to turned the light off.
