Ok, if you're seeing an actual 'warning' message about the oil you need to stop driving your vehicle immediately. This is NOT something that can be reset like a 'change oil' light. The warning is there to tell you that you either have no oil in the vehicle or very low oil pressure which can lead to catastrophic engine damage. If this happened right after an oil change, then something went wrong and you should get it checked out immediately!

Thanks for the info. I had the oil changed by a service tech at a service shop. He said that he had reset it. I just wanted to know if my thoughts were right about the reset being done in the info center in the car. We usually do our own work on our cars, trucks and equipment, but it is still freezing here at night, and my shop floor is pretty cold. I also had them change the rear differential fluid, so on the creeper for an extended period of time it would have been a pretty slow and chilly job. Thanks again, Ron.
