I feel vindicated LOL. I'm coming up on my next change soon, if I go by when the last light came on, so I'll get to try my method of shutting off the auto parking brake and going thru the standard procedure again.Like so many other posters, I was extremely frustrated by my inability to turn off the Oil Change Required indicator message, and tried all of the previous suggestions to no avail. Then I recalled that I was always annoyed that when I get my car back from the dealer having done any work on the vehicle, I find myself driving around town at night without my headlights on because for some reason, the dealer always turns it from automatic where I always keep it, to the off position and I forget to check them. Anyway, it got me thinking and so I tried turning my headlights from automatic to the off position and then followed the standard procedure of turning on the ignition, pumping the gas 3 times, turning off the ignition and finally pushing in the clutch and starting the vehicle. And eureka, that pesky message was nowhere to be seen.
Now, like one of the previous posters who swore it had something to do with turning off the automatic parking brake (a solution that did not seem work for others and certainly not me), perhaps my success was just a confluence of other random events and had nothing at all to do with me turning off the headlights, but I am hopeful this proves to be secret. Clearly, I will need to wait another 9,000 km or so before I can try it again and confirm this to be the trick, but if anyone else with a 2017 1.4L manual transmission has success in the interim, please let us know.
This car is very finicky, which leads me to believe there are many differences from one build to another.
Anyway, glad you found what
makes yours happy.
Just tried the reset after about 7500 since last reset. It took after about the third try. No auto brake on. 3 gas pedal depressions within 10 seconds of turning the ignition key to run or acc.
