sailor Different models here (not Focus) have different OLM reset procedures, and that looks like a different message. If you can't find info. in the thick book the Dealers might be the option unless a Euro member knows the different setup offhand (your versions are more like theirs).

WilliTom Sailor, thanks for the reply. Just tried that. I realised I might be getting a different message, this is what comes up on the dash:
I simply can't find a way to delete this, wondering if I should take to a dealer and get it looked at. Car is at 35k KM (I live in Brazil, so its metric here).

sailor From the beginning of the thread, this retype of the Owner's manual info. might be useful:

A few steps to get it done, in particular note that the car must be "on" but not running and you need to continue to hold the pedals for quite a while after the reset indication comes on to complete the reset. (3 sec. to get the indication, 25 more to complete the process) Need to wait until "reset complete" is displayed after the initial "reset in progress" message comes up.

WilliTom I own a 2014 1.6 Flexfuel TiVCT Manual Transmission Foci and I got that reminder message on mine.
I tried the Accelerator+Brake to reset it with no success. I also tried to check the manual and found nothing on it. Any ideas on how to reset it on a MT car?

another fastlube story

well it was 'Union day' a couple weeks ago for me (I'm the Treasurer of my Local, get 1 day a month to hold 3 shift meetings, work book, reports...) and I take a minute to run to the quick-lube place in lovely Erwin, TN. Oil change rather expensive but I had topped 7500 since last so it needed it. Castrol full synthetic 5W20. Two weeks later at around 23000 miles the "oil change indicator notification" comes on and won't freakin stop. First time with synthetic. Now it comes on each time the car starts. Will have to knock the notification down so thanx for the tips y'all.
