6.0 PSD "Oil change required" on LED dash

Hello,

My 2009 e350 is equipped with the 6.0 PSD engine. I just had the oil changed on 18.5k miles, and now, at just under 20k miles, the dash display shows "oil change required". Is this one of those generic service messages that pop up and given intervals, or has is the engine equipped with some sort of senor that has detected problems with the oil? I know some of the newer engines estimate oil changes based on usage patterns, but I do not think the 6.0s are so equipped.

Thanks for the help.

DJM

How to reset oil service light Ford E 350 Series.

Oil Life Reset and Start Value. An oil change is required whenever indicated by the message center and according to the recommended maintenance schedule.

To reset the oil monitoring system to 100% after each oil change Ford E 350 Series. From years: 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 (approximately 7,500 miles [12,000 km] or six months) perform the following:

1.Switch the ignition ON, do not start the engine.
2.Press and release the SELECT/RESET stem to display “OIL LIFE = XXX% HOLD RESET = NEW”.
3.Press and hold the SELECT/RESET stem for two seconds and release. Oil life is set to XX% and “OIL LIFE SET TO XXX%” is displayed.

5.Once “OIL LIFE SET TO XXX%” is displayed, release and press the RESET control switch to change the Oil Life Start Value. Each release and press will reduce the value by 10%.



Note: Oil Life Start Value of 100% equals 7,500 miles (12,000 km) or six months. For example, setting Oil Life Start Value to 60% sets the Oil Life Start Value to 3,000 miles (4,800 km) and 120 days.

Greg,

Thanks for the reset info -- definitely helpful. Looks like the message is triggered based on mileage (7,500) or time (6 month intervals). Since I have not come close to the 7500 mile mark, I take a look at my service records and see how long ago I had the oil changed.

Cheers,
DJM
