Sorry this isn't more detailed, but your owners manual will tell you how to shut the light off.

THE OWNERS MANUAL DOES NOT DISCUSS HOW TO TURN THE LIGHT OFF. THE GUYS AT THE GARAGE DO NOT KNOW EITHER.

Have you tried unhooking the battery for a few minutes to let the computer reset itself!We had the same problem with one of our vehicles a few years backl.

I have the same problem, 07 explorer. I called the dealership today and they don't know either. They tried for 1/2 hr to find out how. Now I have to go over so they can try to figure it out.

you gotta reset on the entire car. i have an 2006 model and it should be the same on mine as on yours. on your main dash where you should have temp, miles til empty, actual miles on the car...etc. single puch button go into the menu on the dash and it comes up with menu, and then like push to reset, *push* then it should come up with the oil level, and say push if oil is new *push*. And the light should go out after that. if not do the manual reset on it. im not to sure what the trick is, but i would do the dash reset first.

OK GUYS, THIS IS HOW YOU RESET THE OIL CHANGE LIGHT. Press reset to clear any messages that are shown. Press MENU until SYSTEM CHECK is shown. As it goes through the check, the CHANGE OIL message will show. When it does, quickly press and release RESET. Then press and hold RESET. It will tell you when it is reset.

Push the button until it says oil change due. Then hold the button down until it changes, that is how the saleslady told me to do it.
