Preferred method (to avoid embarassment)
1. Open glove compartment
2. Find strange sized paperback provided with vehicle
3. Confirm it has Ford F150 Owner's Manual written on the front
4. Skim book for relevant topic
5. Follow instructions

















Alternate method (to encourage harassment)
Depending on your truck (thanks for all the information by the way), it's on page 91 or 103.

Oops, too late, you have already selected the alternate method...

That looks way harder than just looking at the oil change reminder sticker in the corner of the windshield and replacing when you do an oil change. And it doesn't even tell you what kind of oil you're using. LOL

Thanks for the info. I'm in my work van and the mechanics never reset the light and for some reason they take the owners manuals out of the vans when they first get them in.

It's actually pretty easy once you do it.

It looks complex on paper, but it's not.
