Oil Reset: RAM 1500/2500/3500 Oil Change Required Light (2011-2021)

Last Updated on June 6, 2021 by Nick

The Ram 1500/2500/3500 is a pickup from the American car brand Dodge. The first generation appeared in 1981, and the fourth generation is now in production. So you came here looking for a way to reset the oil change required light on RAM 1500/2500/3500? Stay here; we will help you.

The oil change reminder system can help take the guesswork out of oil changes. When the time has come to change the oil, a single chime will sound, and a message will flash in the cluster screen for about 10 seconds. I got my oil changed, and now I’m going to reset the oil change light.

How To Reset Oil Change Light On RAM 1500/2500/3500

For information, this method applies to the fourth and fifth generations of Ram pickups (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 model years).

With Gas Pedal (2011-2013)

This little trick works with a lot of the GM’s vehicles, but it’s just that there’s a little difference. On most GM’s vehicles, you can actually kick the gas pedal quickly but you must slowly for this one.

So all you have to do to reset the oil light is depress the gas pedal three times slowly after you turn the ignition to the run position, one click before actually starting it.

With Steering Button (2014-2021)

Time needed: 3 minutes.
