Jeep Compass: Reset Oil Light

The Jeep Compass will display an ‘Oil Change Due’ message on the instrument panel when the system senses the vehicle is due for an oil change. After the maintenance service is performed, you can reset this notification using these steps.

  1. Shift the gear to the “Park/P” position.
  2. Press the Start/Stop button to ON/RUN (Do not start the engine).
  3. Slowly press the accelerator in 3 times within 10 seconds.
  4. Press the Start/Stop button to turn the electronics off or turn the ignition to the “Off/Lock” position.
