How to Reset the Change Oil Alert on a Jeep JK

by Leonardo R. Grabkowski

The third-generation Jeep Wrangler model, known as "JK" by the digits in its Vehicle Identification Number, made its debut for the 2007 model-year. The Jeep JK was not originally equipped with a service reminder, or oil change alert. However, Jeep introduced the feature for the 2008 model-year. The "Change Oil" alert is likely to come on approximately every 3000 miles. Changing the oil will not reset or turn off the alert; it must be manually reset.

Step 1

Put your Jeep in "Park" and turn off the engine.

Step 2

Turn the ignition to the "On" notch, without starting the engine.

Step 3

Push the gas pedal to the floor three times (within ten seconds).

Turn the ignition to "Off," and then start the engine to verify that the alert is turned off.
