How do you reset the change oil light - message in a Ford Windstar?

Because the steps to resetting the "Change Oil" nag message are different between model years, and even between models in the same year... The best answer is to refer you to the Owners Manual (see below).

I have to look it up each and every time on my 2001 - put a sticky note in the page so I can find it fast.

For models with the "Message Center"

Click on the setup button until you get to system check. Click on reset and when it asks you to press/hold reset for the oil % just do so. Then it'll ask you to hold the reset button again. Then it will proceed with a system check.

You can cancel the signal with an OBD reader tool. You can buy one or go to Autozone and borrow it.
