Why is My Ford’s Oil Change Indicator Light On?

Your Ford’s oil change indicator light might come on for a few reasons. See a few of them here:

  • The Ford oil change interval has elapsed. Therefore, you’ll need to change the oil with the right Ford Fusion oil type or the correct oil type for whatever Ford vehicle you own.
  • There’s low oil pressure in your vehicle, which could indicate an oil leak or that you need an oil change.
  • You’ve got a low oil level in your vehicle, which also means you need a Ford oil change.

If you don’t know why your Ford oil change indicator light came on when driving along Shepherdsville roads, don’t hesitate to bring your vehicle in for service to our Elizabethtown service center. You might consider a DIY oil change, in which case you need to perform a Ford oil change light reset when you’re done. While performing an oil change, make sure to pick out the right Ford Fusion oil type or the right oil type for your Ford vehicle.
