How To Reset Oil Change/Service Light On Fiat Ducato
Last Updated on July 24, 2022 by Nick
The Fiat Ducato is a mid-range van model developed by the joint venture Sevel between Fiat and PSA Peugeot Citroën. So this morning, I got an oil change reminder on my Fiat Ducato, and now I want to reset the service light.
The service minder light actually tells you, based on their driving habits and engine operating conditions to change the oil through the instrument cluster. After you are done with regular service and oil changes, you need to reset the service interval. This is very important to do, so let’s do it.

2013-2023 Fiat Ducato Oil Change/Service Light Reset Procedure
Time needed: 3 minutes.
In this section, I’ve got to do a slightly more in-depth procedure on extinguishing the change engine oil indicator and the flashing service light on a 2018 Fiat Ducato. The process is straightforward as long as you follow it to the latter. So the way to do it is:
- Turn the ignition key to the ON position
Just turn on the ignition without making the engine start
- Press and hold the GAS pedal
Make sure to fully depress and hold down the gas/accelerator pedal
- Depress the BRAKE pedal 7 times
With one foot on the accelerator pedal, pump the brake pedal seven times. You may notice that the brake pedal loses the vacuum, and it goes really hard, but don’t worry about out; just keep on pressing it those seven times
- Keep holding of the GAS pedal
After stepping on the BRAKE pedal, do not release the GAS pedal and keep holding it for 60 seconds
- Release the GAS pedal and turn off the car
So then you release the GAS pedal and switch the ignition off, then leave it switched off for another further 60 seconds
- Wait for a moment
After turning off the ignition, wait for at least 60 seconds before starting the engine
- Start the engine to verify the indicator has been reset
When the time is up, we’ll start the engine, and you’ll see that the change engine oil indicator is missing and that it has been reset. Or it might flash or stay on for a little bit, and you might see the change engine oil stay on for a moment, but it will go out.
For your info, this operation work for the third generation of the Fiat Ducato (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023 model years).
The right oil service for your Fiat Ducato
Performing an oil change on your Fiat Ducato is one of the most important maintenance procedures to maintain efficiency and protect the motor. You can also ask your mechanic for a check-up. Generally, they will advise you to do an oil change before the technical control.
Oil Change Requirements
The Fiat Ducato oil change is an essential maintenance task. The proper lubrication will ensure optimal oil efficiency and protect the motor from damage. To change oil properly, you must have special tools and access to the bottom of the minibus. The oil used should be high-quality and suitable for your car. For more information, visit the Service Station Ducato, which provides a comprehensive service for light commercial vehicles.
First, you should check the oil level of your Fiat Ducato. To do this, wait a few minutes after turning off the engine. Park your vehicle on level ground. The oil level should be between the MIN and MAX marks on the dipstick B. The gap between these marks corresponds to one litre of oil. Once the oil level is near the MIN mark, add more oil using the filler neck A. Never let the oil level exceed the MAX mark.
When to perform an oil change on a Fiat Ducato
Your car’s manual should tell you when to change the oil, but it may also require some additional steps. To avoid damaging the oil change indicator, you should drive your car with it on. To reset the indicator, follow the steps above. Then, follow the manufacturer’s instructions to change the oil. Once your oil change is complete, you can drive your Fiat Ducato again.
Oil Change Cost
The price of an oil change for a Fiat Ducato depends on the oil used and how often it is performed. For an oil change, Fiat recommends a 5W-30 synthetic oil. You can find different prices online to help you determine the most affordable price for your car. You should also check whether the oil filter is new and whether it needs to be replaced. To ensure the quality of your oil, check the maintenance manual to find out what type of oil your Fiat needs.
A typical Fiat Ducato oil change will cost 50 to 100 euros. You can also perform the oil change yourself. It is easy to do if you know how much engine oil your car needs. You can also use the oil change guide to gauge your oil level and check the level yourself. Besides, knowing the amount of oil to change will also help you manage the oil level in your car. For the entire process, you need at least an hour.
FAQ – Fiat Ducato Engine Oil
The recommended oil for the Ducato with MultiJet and EcoJet Euro 6 engines is SAE 0W-30 full synthetic oil. While in the MultiJet Euro 5 engine, it is preferable to use 5W-30 oil.
Lubricant consumption varies from engine to engine based on displacement and design. The 2.3 MultiJet typically uses 6 to 6.5 litres of oil, whereas the 3.0 MultiJet typically uses 9.0 to 9.7 litres.
Maintenance for the Fiat Ducato is typically every two years or 45,000 kilometres. The 3.0 Multijet 160 DPF from 2010 to 2013 (32,000 km) and the 3.0 CNG engines are exceptions to this rule (40,000 km). Please keep in mind that if you drive your Ducato a lot in city traffic, you should schedule an oil change sooner rather than later.
So that’s how to reset the oil change reminder on this vehicle. I hope this content is useful and can help you solve the problem. So thanks for your time, and have a nice day.
