Oil Change Monitor reset


Best Answer ptjones , 17 April 2016 - 12:47 PM

Changed oil & filter in my 2015 Cmax Hybrid- now how do I reset oil monitor message?  Can't find anything in owners manual?  Can it be that difficult?   Thanks!

fbov posted this in oil change tread:

1. Press the start/stop button once (do not start the engine).

 

2. Press both the accelerator and brake pedals at the same time.

 

3. Keep both pedals fully pressed.

 

4. After three seconds, the Service: Oil reset in prog. message will be displayed.

 

5. After 25 seconds, the Service: Oil reset complete message will be displayed.

 

6. Release both the accelerator and brake pedals.

 

7. The Service: Oil reset complete message will no longer be displayed.

 

8. Turn the ignition off and start the engine to verify the indicator has been reset.

 

Good Luck, Paul :)

I may have posted it, but I assure you I copied it from someone else...

I thought I had seen the answer in the past but can't find it searching. I have 2015 Hybrid SEL. Is there an information area that indicates miles left before oil change is due without using an after market scan tool? Thank you all!

Not that I know of, just sticker on windshield or a note on fuelly. :)

Afraid you are right. Seems odd doesn't it?

Remaining oil life is one of the items included in the Vehicle Health Report.

Does this work for the C-Max Hybrid?

 

I finally got a VHR to run on my Energi and I can't find anything about oil life remaining.  All it does is give me like 5 green checks for various categories and the "additional info" just has some generic boiler plate about how your engine works, etc.

 

The closest I found was in my 70K mile service to be done where it says that the oil should be changed either when the OLM comes on or 24 months or 20K miles, whichever comes first.  

From the 53% reading on Forscan I'm assuming I'm just going to get an OLM light at 80K.

All I can say is that remaining oil life is always displayed on the Vehicle Health Report for our 2013 C-MAX Hybrid SE.

 

Here's a screenshot of the top of the email report, with some information blanked for privacy.

Of course it may be different for C-MAX Hybrid Energi, and for other model years.

Thanks for the reply! I do run VHR but didn't recall this. Great information. Problem solved!

That is odd, I've never seen the oil life line when I run the Report for my 2013 C-Max Hybrid. I went back and checked previous emails -- they look the same (other than the specific information that you omitted) except mine is lacking the Oil Life Box. To double check, I just ran a new report and it was the same way, no box there for Oil Life. Makes me wonder if there is a setting hiding somewhere that I've missed that might give me more information.

Nice!

 

Yeah, I just re-checked the one I got for my 13 Energi and it doesn't show the oil life like yours.
