Jeep Renegade: How to Reset Oil Light

The Jeep Renegade will notify you with an “Oil Change Due” message when service is due on the vehicle. Once the service has been performed, you can perform an oil reset to clear the message using these steps.

  1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position without holding the brake pedal. Do not start the engine. 
  2. Slowly 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 on the dashboard, including the oil warning light).
  3. Switch the ignition to OFF, then immediately back ON.

You should see “Oil Change Reset” message appear on the instrument panel. This signifies you have reset the oil light properly.

The light will illuminate again once the system detects service is needed. The mileage travelled before the notification appears can vary and fluctuate depending on your driving style.

This guide is valid for all models of the Jeep Renegade years 2015-2021.

If you are unable to reset the oil change notification light in the Jeep Renegade on the first try, repeat the steps. If you are still unsuccessful, contact the dealership for assistance in resetting the oil life on the Jeep Renegade.
