Question Resetting the Oil Change Required Indicator

Resetting the Oil Change Required Indicator

If the engine oil is changed before the oil change required indicator has been tripped/displayed does it need to be reset?
If it does need to be reset (see page 163 of users guide) how does one know it has been reset if there was no indicator to start with?

From Page 163 of Users Guide
OILCHANGEREQUIRED
Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change indicator system. The Oil Change
telltale and message (Oil Change Required) will display in the EVIC/DID display for
approximately 10 seconds, after a single chime has sounded, to indicate the next
scheduled oil change interval. The engine oil change indicator system is duty-cycle
based, which means the engine oil change interval may fluctuate dependent upon
your personal driving style.
Unless reset, this message will continue to display each time you turn the ignition
switch to the MAR/RUN position for vehicles not equipped with Keyless Enter-NGo
™, or cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN position for vehicles equipped with Keyless
Enter-N-Go™. To turn off the message temporarily, push and release the MENU
button. To reset the oil change indicator system (after performing the scheduled
maintenance), refer to the following procedure:
Vehicles Equipped With Keyless Enter-N-Go™
1. Without pushing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE START/STOP button and
cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN position (do not start the engine).
2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times within 10 seconds.
3. Without pushing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE START/STOP button once to
return the ignition to the OFF/LOCK position.
Vehicles Not Equipped With Keyless Enter-N-Go™
1. Turn the ignition switch to the MAR/RUN position (do not start the engine).
2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times within 10 seconds.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the STOP/OFF position.
NOTE:
If the indicator message illuminates when you start the engine, the oil change
indicator system did not reset. If necessary, repeat these steps.

Did my first oil change at 2000 miles but procedures in the manual to reset the next service interval does not seem to do anything. Turned ignition on without foot on brake, depressed gas pedal three times, turned ignition off. Did this at least a dozen times. Still shows 8000 miles and remaining 320 days to end of year for service. Anyone know if the service indicator needs to be triggered before it can be reset? Have had other vehicles with similar systems but all could be reset when desired.

I don't think you can reset without the notice. I changed my oil at 4000 miles before a long trip and the service reminder came on at 8k. Reset works perfect.

I agree, I had the oil reset idiot light on two Fiat's I owned recently. You have to wait until the message shows then reset. In other words, if you change the oil before the message shows, you cannot reset until the idiot light tells you to change the oil.

Thanks for the info. I always change oil based on mileage anyway. Interesting that the Cherokee has a more traditional percentage based indicator that can be reset when desired.

Oil service countdown not resetting

Had my TH in for its first service this morning, noticed they didn't reset the oil countdown screen, took it back, they fiddled with things for 45 minutes but finally gave up. Followed the instructions in the manual: don't push brake, push start button until vehicle is in ON mode, slowly depress accelerator three times all the way within 10 seconds, then push start button again (without touching the brake). Won't reset, tried it myself a few times as well.

Any advice?

Ah, seems this happened to me as well. Having it changed at 7200 miles, dealership couldn't figure out how to reset it early either.

I think the oil lights and service countdown are unrelated.

It is a service countdown screen is it not?
Mine is. I have no oil screen.
There will be a change oil message comes up if required.

I had my oil changed at the dealership too. They reset the oil light... But the service counter is still counting down to 0. I called dealership , they said that's the 10000 mile service counter and once I have them rotate tires, flush fluids and check breaks it will reset. But that they couldn't tell me how to reset it.
