If you’ve completed an oil change on your 2014
Jeep Wrangler
and need to reset the oil maintenance light, simply push your accelerator pedal to the floor three times and wait for a beep.
When your car’s oil gets low, your vehicle will let you know by displaying a dashboard alert or warning light. Most drivers get their vehicle’s oil changed by a mechanic—and in those cases, the mechanic will reset the oil maintenance light for you. But if you do your own oil changes at home, then you need to know how to reset the oil change reminder yourself.
Turning off the oil light on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler only takes about one minute and is pretty simple to learn—so if you’re about to complete an at-home oil change on your Wrangler for the first time, check out this short guide on how to reset your oil maintenance alert.

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

The 2014 Jeep Wrangler displays an engine oil maintenance alert near your instrument cluster when it’s time for an oil change. Whenever you see a symbol that looks like a small oil can pop up, it’s a good idea to change your oil as soon as possible.
However, because the oil reminder light doesn’t automatically turn off after an oil change, you’ll have to reset it yourself. Resetting your oil light in a timely manner allows your vehicle to track the correct interval between oil changes.
To reset the oil light on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler, follow these three easy steps.
  • Put your key in the ignition and turn it to the ON/RUN position.
  • Press your accelerator all the way to the floor three times and wait for a beep.
  • Turn your car off and on again.
As long as you’ve followed these instructions, your oil reminder alert will switch itself off. The next time it appears, you’ll know it’s time for another oil change.

How often does a 2014 Jeep Wrangler need an oil change?

Jeep suggests changing the oil on a 2014 Wrangler every 3,000 to 5,000 miles and using SAE 5W-20 grade motor oil. This 3,000 to 5,000 mileage limit works out to be about once every six months for most drivers, but the exact amount of time between oil changes depends on how often you drive your car.
To make it easier to track the right period of time between oil changes, your Wrangler displays an oil reminder light on your dashboard when you’re due for an oil change. Keep in mind that driving a car with old or low oil can cause performance issues, overheating, or
serious engine damage
—so once you see that oil light turn on, schedule an oil change at your earliest convenience.
Performing a DIY oil change is a great way to avoid expensive labor charges, but you can also make a service appointment at your preferred dealership or auto body shop to have a mechanic complete the oil change for you. Of course, if you do decide to do your own oil change, don’t forget to reset the oil reminder light when you’re done!
If your oil light won’t reset after an oil change, try repeating the instructions listed in the previous section. But if that doesn’t work, it could be time to bring your car to a repair shop and ask them to check for issues with your oil pump.
