    Changed my oil recently and this light still remains on. Is there a way to turn it off or something. If you know or have a link to how to do it, please let me know. Thanks!

    The computer isn't going to detect the new oil. You have to reset it per the instructions in the manual.

    Turn the key to the "ON" position.
    Scroll through the ODO and go to the total miles screen. (Not Trip A or B)
    Turn the key off.
    Hold the button and turn the key on.
    The ODO will blink and read XXXX.
    Once it's done, let go of the button.
    Done.

    I just changed my oil 200 miles ago @ 4800. I expected the light to come on at 5k miles BUT the manual says a light that flashes and goes off is to remind for oil change. I got a light at 5k, but it STAYS on, which manual says means something's wrong with the oil. What gives?

    I don't think you read the manual correct. It should flash around 4500 and go solid around 5000 miles.

    Flashing = "Hey, you're getting close to 5000"
    Solid = "Hey, you're at 5000"

    Just reset it. It goes by mileage not by oil quality.
