How to reset the engine oil maintenance light on a 2019 Jeep Renegade

Your 2019 Jeep Renegade is equipped with an engine oil change indicator system that helps you stay on top of regular oil changes. When it’s time to change your engine oil, the indicator light in your instrument cluster will flash, along with the display message “Oil Change Due.” But until you manually reset this indicator light, it will remain on—even after you’ve serviced the vehicle. 
To reset the oil change indicator light, you’ll have to do it manually. Thankfully, it’s a short and straightforward process! Just follow these steps:
  • Start by turning your ignition to the “ON” position, but don’t start the vehicle engine
  • With the ignition turned to “ON,” fully depress and release the accelerator (gas) pedal three times in a row within 10 seconds
  • Turn the ignition to the “OFF” position
And that’s it! The next time you start your vehicle, the indicator light should not appear—you’ve successfully reset the oil light. 
If the light does appear again after turning your vehicle back on, that means the reset didn’t work. In that case, you should give the steps above another go. If that still doesn’t help, there may be an issue with the system’s sensor that requires further attention. 

How often does a 2019 Jeep Renegade need an oil change? 

Jeep recommends changing your 2019 Renegade’s engine oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles using synthetic 0W-20 engine oil. 
If your Renegade sports an upgraded turbo engine, then you should use 0W-30 SN PLUS synthetic oil, instead. Synthetic oils may not need to be changed as frequently—but in any case, you should never exceed 10,000 miles without changing the oil!
Mopar, Pennzoil, and Shell Helix are the top brands Jeep suggests for engine oil—and it’s typically a good idea to stay close to your manufacturer’s recommendations. The average cost of a
Jeep oil change
is around $150, but you can save time and money otherwise spent at a shop by changing the oil yourself at home.
