You can reset the engine oil change light on the Jeep Wrangler by following these steps.

Method 1: Resetting Oil Change Indicator
Without starting the engine, turn the ignition in the ON/RUN mode position.
In the instrument cluster display, navigate to “Vehicle Info” then “Oil Life.”
Push and hold the ‘OK’ button until the oil life gauge resets to 100%.
NOTE: You can navigate the Wrangler’s instrument cluster display using the arrow controls located on the left-hand side of the steering wheel.

Method 2: Resetting Oil Change Indicator
Without starting the engine, turn the ignition in the ON/RUN mode position.
Fully press the accelerator pedal three times within ten seconds.
Place the ignition in the OFF/LOCK position.
If the indicator message is still lit after following either method, the oil change indicator system did not reset. If this happens, carefully repeat the procedure. It’s important to note that the engine oil change indicator system is duty cycle based. That means the engine oil change interval may fluctuate based on your personal driving habits.
