Long time lurker, first time poster.

Got a 2009 black XLT a few months ago (awesome, awesome ride).

The "Engine Oil Change Soon" message came on, so I . . . changed my oil. But now whenever I start the escape, it's still comes on! It tells me to press the reset button for it to go awy, which I do, and it goes away for the entire trip. But the next time I start the escape, it's back.

I even used the recommended oil and everything!

Help!

Your ride sounds very nice. Can't wait to see pics. :)

You have to press the Setup control to get to the oil life indicator and then hold Reset for two seconds. See page 75/76 of your manual for clarification.

By the way, the monitor has no idea what oil you used. There is no "oil life sensor" - it uses several sensors to calculate your oil life based on start cycles, engine temp, RPMs, fuel usage, and maybe some other things.
