Oil Life Monitor Where is it ?

I went thru all the menus on my Latitude and cannot find anything that says the % of oil life that is left. I don't have the more expensive color display so maybe it is not in there. Does anybody know ? Will it still give a warning about when the oil needs changing ?

According to the manual, a light will display on the dash when the oil needs to be changed. Within 300 miles of seeing this, you should go and get the oil and filter replaced.

Based on what I have seen on the forums here I believe it accords somewhere around 7000 miles (depending on operating factors).

If you use the controls on the steering wheel to scroll down through the menus on the dash display, you will find it in the 2nd menu: "Vehicle Info". You will then need to scroll to the last option (past the tire pressure, voltage, etc) to the Service display. It will tell you the approximate miles and number of days until you need to service the vehicle. I assumed that this was the oil change interval, as it seems to coincide with that service. I just got my Latitude with the 1.4 engine, so it is telling me that I have over 9000 miles and almost a year before the service is due.

I don't have "Service" in my menu. I have the "Vehicle Info" menu but none of the choices are "Service". I would be curious if anybody with the 2.4L engine has the "Service" menu and maybe it is only with the 1.4 engine.

I checked the menus on my system today, and under the "Vehicle Info" option there are 5 screens that you can scroll through (using the left & right arrows): tire pressure, voltage, coolant temperature, oil temperature, and the last is the "Service" screen which displays the number of days and number of miles until service (oil change) is due. Royalblue, do you have 5 screens or only 4 on your 2.4l Renegade?

I have 5 screens and they are -
- tire pressure
- engine coolant temp
- transmission temp
- engine oil temp
- battery voltage

I do not have a Service Menu. The funny thing is page 208 and 209 of my owners manual references exactly what I have. Curious what your manual says. Maybe in the US you have different software for your menus. Maybe another Canadian will chime in about this.

My Canadian TrailHawk does indeed have the service menu:
- tire pressure
- engine coolant temp
- transmission temp
- engine oil temp
- battery voltage
- Service

On the Trailhawk you have the 7 inch full color in cluster display. I have the simple monochrome display. Your menus should be different. I am looking for people that have the Latitude or North model with the monochrome display. If they have the service menu it is possible there is different software.

Very true, however I would think (therefore nowhere near a fact) that the difference would be in the main menus (i.e. digital speedo, audio info, fuel economy etc.). It would be good if the pages under the Vehicle Info menu were similar/the same. Assuming the North had the same vehicle sensors. Perhaps they don't.
