You may have exceeded the mileage since your last oil change. Not sure what the factory setting is on your car. If you have driven 3500- 4000 since your last oil change, that may be what has triggered the light. Try turning your key to the ON position without starting your car. Now push in the knob and hold it for your mileage/trip counter for 20 seconds. See if that resets the light.
