    Oil Change Reminder Light

    Can my local mechanic turn off the reminder light after he's changed the oil or is this something only the dealer can do?
    Thanks, Morgano

    Anybody can do it -
    1. Turn key to on position. Do not start the car.
    2. Within 5 seconds, push fully on the gas pedal three times.

    Does this turn off the oil change light permanently? My First oil change was at approximately 8000 ,miles. After I had that done, my oil change light stayed on and the technician turned the light off. It is now 17780 miles and my oil change light has still not gone on. Shouldn't I be changing the oil at least very 10,000 miles?

    NO, it does NOT turn it off permanently...it just resets the program that determines when to turn the light on the next time.
