They must not have reset it. I change at 7500 (DIY) and I've never had the light come on. What kind of driving do you do? I think a lot of stop start and cold running will influence the monitor, but still.

BTW, it's a easy reset. Just turn the key on and press the brake and accelerator to the floor and hold them down until the reset indicator shows up on the screen by the speedo.
