You can reset the Oil Change Required light on a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee by turning the ignition but not the engine on, depressing the accelerator three times, then turning the ignition back off. 
Many vehicles, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee included, are equipped with indicator systems to alert their drivers when it’s time for an oil change. This can be a really beneficial feature that helps prevent the overuse of old, potentially contaminated, or low levels of oil that may otherwise damage your engine—however, it can also be a bit frustrating when you’ve fixed the issue and you’re still being flashed by the alert message. 
But don’t worry! Performing a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee oil change indicator system reset is fairly simple. Here’s how to do it.

How to reset the engine oil maintenance light on a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The Engine Oil Change Indicator System in the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a duty-based system that analyzes the state of your engine oil and alerts you when it needs to be replaced. The “Oil Change Required” indicator light won’t go away on its own once you’ve had the service taken care of, though, so you’ll need to reset it after each oil change
Happily, it’s a simple enough process. To reset the oil change light in your 2014 Grand Cherokee, put your vehicle in park and follow these steps:
  • Without pressing the brake, push the engine start/stop button twice to turn the ignition to the On/Run position—make sure you did not start the engine
  • Within 10 seconds, slowly press the accelerator pedal three times 
  • Push the engine start/stop button again to turn the ignition to the Off/Lock position 
The next time you start up your Jeep, the alert message should be gone. If it’s still illuminated, repeat the above process. You may need to bring your vehicle to your nearest Jeep dealership or your
trusted local mechanic
if the message doesn’t disappear after you’ve repeated the resetting procedure. 

How often does a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee need an oil change?

The oil change indicator system in your Jeep is a handy tool for keeping tabs on your oil change intervals, but it’s helpful to know how long a fresh batch of oil will last anyway. Jeep recommends getting an oil change for your 2014 Grand Cherokee every 3,000 to 5,000 miles if you’re using conventional motor oil. 
If you opt for the synthetic stuff, you could go between 7,500 to 10,000 miles before you need an oil change. Keep in mind, though, that older vehicles may need more
regular servicing
, and your specific driving habits and environment will impact your oil usage, so it’s important to pay attention to any signs of poor oil quality like a burning smell or
loud noises from your engine
When you determine it’s time to change your vehicle’s oil, head to your local Jeep servicing center or try your hand at a DIY oil change to save a decent chunk of change on your
