Disconnect battery for 30 seconds to reset ECU, hopefully that should help :)

Did you disconnect both of them? Killing power to the main battery alone won't fully reset the Jeep.

Which reset method were you using when you ran into the issue?

Oil Life Reset Method:

1. Without pushing the brake pedal, push and release the
ENGINE START/STOP button and place the ignition to
the ON/RUN position (do not start the engine).

2. Navigate to Oil Life submenu in vehicle Info in the
instrument cluster display.

3. Push and hold the OK button until the gauge resets to 100%.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Secondary Method For Oil Change Reset Procedure
1. Without pushing the brake pedal, push and release the
ENGINE START/STOP button and place the ignition to
the ON/RUN position (do not start the engine).
2. Fully press the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times
within ten seconds.
3. Without pushing the brake pedal, push and release the
ENGINE START/STOP button once to return the ignition
to the OFF/LOCK position.

NOTE: If the indicator message illuminates when you
start the vehicle, the oil change indicator system did not

Excellent. Glad that fixed it... for now, anyway. Hopefully you don't run into that issue again.

I was the first method. After pulling the batteries cables, I was able to reset it with the dash menu.

For years I did the pedal push way, Oil Life Reset with different JK's (4) I have owned.

With the JL, I have changed the oil 6 times now and how just gone to the Oil Life submenu and done it. Never had any issues doing this.

I have followed this forum very closely for over 2 years now and no one but you has had an issue such as yours. Weird.....................

Yes, more is going on. After getting it running, took for drive and middle of day headlights would not shut down on auto and check engine came on and off a couple times. Got back home and plugged in diagnostic, 7 error codes popped up. At dealer now, they say they see some voltage problems in systems but have yet to know what is going on.

I am in the same boat. Never had an issue. I am in mechanical engineering and my IT guys always get mad at me because I just do things the way I think they should work. I just put it on Run (engine off) and hit ok to reset the oil life.

Hope they figure it out and it is an easy rectification.
