Jeep Commander: How to Reset Oil Light

The Jeep Commander will display an “Oil Change Required” message once the system senses the vehicle is due for service. Once maintenance service has been performed, this message will need to be cleared manually. In this guide, we show you how to reset the oil light on the Jeep Commander.

  1. Press the “Start/Stop” button once without holding the brake to turn on the electronics. Do not start the engine. For key ignitions, turn it to the “On” position.
  2. Gently press the gas pedal all the way down to the floor three times within ten seconds. (With each press you will see various warning lights disappear within the dashboard, including the oil warning light).
  3. Press the “Start/Stop” button once to turn the electronics off. For key ignitions, turn it to the “Off” position.

Now when you start your Jeep Commander again, you should see OIL CHANGE RESET appear in the dash. This signifies you have reset the oil life properly.

These steps will work for all models of the Jeep Commander years 2005-2010.

If you are unable to reset the oil change notification light on the first try, repeat the steps. If you are still unsuccessful, contact the dealership for assistance or consult your vehicle user’s manual.
