Oil light question?

1607 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  dirtdawg
I have been lurking here for several weeks and finally joined. I was very impressed with the help people were getting here. Everyone seems to be very helpful and friendly!! Any way maybe someone can help me now. I have a 2005 Honda foreman es 4x4 and had the oil changed at 10 hrs a couple of weeks ago.. I went riding today and noticed the oil change light came on at about 14 hrs. Should it be coming on and does this mean I need to change it again. It has only been about 4 hrs since I changed it last. The quad is running fine and all just this light thing is bothering me. I hope maybe the light jst needs to be reset or something. I am no mechanic so I hope that is all it is. Thanks and hopefully someone can help!!!

you just need to reset the light. the instructions should be in the owners manual. i'd tell you but don't have my book handy.
It probably wasn't re-set when the service was done .. If the oil is changed before the service indicator comes on then the re-set still must done or the oil change light will come on early .. It runs off both mileage & hours ..

I will get my book out and reset the light. I appreciate your replies!!!
