How do Jeep Compas oil life sensors work?

In this section, we’re going to take a look at your engine oil life monitor. I believe a minute of maintenance can save you hours of heartache. 

The correct oil change at the right time is essential to keeping your vehicle performing at its best. Many new cars feature an oil monitoring system making it easy to know when to change your own. This monitoring system will help you change your engine oil on a schedule consistent with your driving style and the conditions in which you drive. Short journeys and winter weather may create just as much wear to your engine oil as long trips on a warm sunny day.

When the remaining oil life is low, an oil change message will appear on your instrument cluster, or the remaining percentage will get close to 0%. You must reset the oil life system after each oil change to work correctly. So it can begin to calculate the next time your engine oil will need changing. Remember, your oil s monitoring system does not check how much oil is actually in the engine, just when it the changing.
