nothing to much but, the digital sensor for the oil

it went to change now so i changed it (i wasnt relying on that alone it was truly about 3k miles) but it still says now

do i have to reset it or should it change itself

Turn the key on (don't start) and hold the button on the side of the VMM (the display) for 3-5 sec. Let go and your done!

Do this: take a large paper clip (not a regular sized one), unfold it. Turn the key on to engine run, but don't start the car. Push the unfolded paper clip into the small hole to the left of the Oil Change light and hold it until the VMM stops flashing, about 3 or 4 seconds. Do this everytime you chnge your oil or whenever you need to. The VMM is notoriously bad about going off too soon. In fact, I place a small yellow sticky next to the odometer with my next Oil change mileage and just reset the VMM about 3 times between changes.

I had forgotten that not all years have the button next to the VMM. TbirdSCFan is right on the money!!!
