How to reset the engine oil maintenance light on a 2019 Mazda CX-5

When the maintenance light illuminates on your dash, you can get more information by using the multi-information display screen in your Mazda CX-5. Use the “INFO” switch on the steering wheel to toggle the warning indication screen.
Note that a wrench symbol means that your CX-5 is due for regular maintenance, whereas an oil can symbol means that your Mazda is low on oil. If you see the oil can, pull over and wait five minutes before checking your oil level. Do not drive without sufficient oil!
Once you access the menu on your car’s MID, here’s what you need to know to reset the 2019 Mazda CX-5 oil maintenance light:
  • Select the “Applications” icon
  • Go to “Vehicle Status Monitor
  • Navigate to “Maintenance” and then “Oil Change
  • Select “Reset
Your maintenance light should go off once you select “Reset.” If you go to an auto shop for an oil change, the technician may take care of this step for you.
It’s very important to pay attention to the warning lights. If you don’t respond to and reset them, your car won’t be able to properly track how often you should get an oil change. If the maintenance light or the oil can symbol appears again—even after you’ve taken care of the issue—you may need to call your Mazda dealer for help.

How often does a 2019 Mazda CX-5 need an oil change?

Mazda that you change your CX-5’s oil every 7,500 to 15,000 miles. Synthetic oil lasts a lot longer than conventional motor oil, so you could go a full year between oil changes depending on your driving habits. But don’t wait any longer than one year. If you
don’t get an oil change
, you could cause serious engine damage.
Oil changes are relatively easy to perform yourself if you have a safe and level place to work. You will need a new filter, new oil (here’s your Mazda 3 oil capacity), and a few basic automotive tools that you can purchase at any auto supply shop. 
Start by learning the steps from your
owner’s manual
. A
Mazda oil change costs
about $100, but you could pocket that cash by doing it yourself.
If something goes wrong, or if the oil light doesn’t reset, don’t hesitate to bring your car to a Mazda dealership or an auto repair shop. 
Remember that basic maintenance is only 50% of your responsibility as a car owner. On top of regular servicing, you should also find a great
car insurance
policy so you have protection in the event of an accident. Good luck!
