    Was your change oil light on before your last oil change? Did it not come on after you reset it then? Or was it not on before the last oil change, and maybe you did something wrong on the reset procedure. It does not have an actual sensor that checks oil composition, it goes by how you drive the car, temps of the engine, RPM, and other things.

    The trip method never really worked well for me. I've always used the gas pedal method to turn off the light.

    Quickest link I could find, but there's a bunch more.
