Here is the problem, the "Oil Change" message has popped onto the screen behind the steering wheel. I have followed the books procedure to the Tee...

Any clues to what could be going on before I take it to dealer?
Hi awwall,

I recommend popping in to your Ford Dealer and speaking with a service technician. In addition, I'd like to connect you with your regional customer service manager, who'll work with you and your dealer to get this figured out. Please send me a PM with your full name, best daytime phone number, VIN, mileage, and preferred servicing dealership.

Todd

Yes, I am going to the "on" position as you indicate, all lights in the cluster come on, including the "change oil" indicator. When I do the reset procedure, it does absolutely nothing.

OK. I've seen simpler mistakes made sometimes.

Next thing to check is if you have brake lights. I've seen new cars with bad brake light switches. If you don't have brake lights then the switch may not be working and the computer wouldn't know that you are holding the brake pedal in.

I will most definitely take you up on the offer. I am going out of town starting tomorrow and will be back around the 12th of April and will send you all of the info. The car is still under warranty until this October. I thought maybe I was doing something wrong, hence, the questions here.

Dumb question...are you pushing the pedals COMPLETELY to the floor? Just resting on them, or only applying light pressure won't trigger the reset...don't ask me how I know. Jamb those pedals to the firewall.

It's not recommended. The engine will start.

You might try varying the 2 second time interval a bit.

You are right.
I visualized push button start but the OP did use the word "key".
