How do I reset change oil light...

2007 Eddie Bauer Explorer, V6...
I am annoyed out of my mined! How can I reset the "change oil" message after I have changed the oil. There has to be some way, turn on the radio with one tire jacked up, open all the doors with the headlights on, etc. to cancell this thing.
Thanks for any help you can give me...

If your Explorer is like my Sport Trac there is a procedure in the owners manual. You know that book in the glove box that no one looks at!

Well, thanks for the reply, but mines not a Sport Trac, and I looked in TFM located in the glove box!

Thanks Gustav129...I want to reset the thing so I don't have to hit the reset button every time I get in it. There has to be a procedure, but I scanned the owners manual twice, and found nothing. Thanks again.

Thanks Shortbed...I'll try as soon as my wife gets home. On our 07, Every time you start the engine, you have to hit the reset button, or that annoying yellow light keeps screaming CHANGE THE OIL! Well, to me it screams...my wife asks "what light"!?
