The “Oil Change Due” light will illuminate on the Dodge Journey to remind you that you need to change the oil in the vehicle. If you want to clear this light, you can reset it with this quick tutorial.
Note: You can temporarily clear the “Oil Change Due” message by pressing the “Up” arrow button.
To reset the message completely, follow these steps:
- Turn the ignition to the “ON/RUN” position. For push button start models, press the “Engine Start/Stop” button once without holding the brake pedal. Do not start the engine.
- Press the Accelerator pedal all the way down slowly 3 times within a 10 second interval.
- Turn the ignition to “OFF/LOCK“. For push button start models, press the “Engine Start/Stop” button once without holding the brake pedal to turn the electronics off.
If the steps were performed correctly, the “Oil Change Due” light should be reset on your Dodge Journey and no longer appear.
How often will the “Oil Change Due” light come on?
Dodge only states in their documentation that it varies based on how the vehicle is driven. They do suggest that you absolutely must not let the oil change interval exceed 1 year or 10,000 miles.
