Is there a way to disable this nannyistic needless POStuff? aka: TPMS's younger lesser known brother.

I change my oil and filter every 5000 miles.............easy to remember.
It seems to me Ford, because of lack of "buttons" decided to go with the pedals. In my ex-car, the light for "maintenance time" was reset if I pushed two buttons same time. And yes, not many Ford technicians knew about the feature. What a f... ? Doesn't anybody read the f... manual nowadays ? Why ? Because of the "we know it all" syndrome ?

To be right, I don't mind to do a simple operation, 'cause its simple enough. (turn the key on, keep both break and accelerator pedals pressed for 25 seconds, let go, turn the key off). BUT I DO MIND when Ford's technical staff doesn't have a clue about the car they are supposed to do the maintenance on.
