Default 2010 Mustang Oil Change Question

I have a 2010 Mustang and I have changed the oil and can not figure out how to reset the oil change required on the dash. I called the dealer and they said it has to go back to the dealer eveytime to be reset. Is this true or am I missing something? Thank You Jenn

Cool

ok i was a lube tech at a ford dealer and did a few LOFs on the 2010s before getting canned so lets see if i remember how to do this

you have to go into the information center(i forget if there is a 3 button pad or if you have to use the trip recet stick) and there should be a oil change reset screen you hold reset and it should reset the light. also check ur owners manual it might give better instructions in there

I do have a 3 button pad but if I reset it only resets the oil life. And it makes the oil change required light go away until the car is turned off and turned back on. Thank you for replying and trying to help.

OMG that sucks having that feature. That and the low tire pressure are the most annoying and idiotic **** in the world. Thank God I don't have that, but my wife's car does. It's easy enough to reset, but annoying. Pretty soon cars will be as nagging as our wives!

I have no idea how to edit my post but I have also read the owners guide back to front and it is not in there. There is the info to reset the oil life but nothing on an oil change at all.
