If the light went off on it's own then its a sensor that tests oil condition. Did you change the oil or a shop? A shop might have reset it. If so then its got the other kind that most have, uses a formula that takes how aggressive you drive into account and tell you when to change based on that. With these the light may come on at 10,000 miles or 3,000 depending on your driving. As long as you use recommended oil this system works great. Dont go above or below the quality specified. The 2.5 is picky, listen to it.
