Hey I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee and in the cab there is a screen that tells me when something goes out or the amount of miles until I need to change the oil, well it is now down to 0 miles and when I start up the engine it beeps at me and says perform service well I just changed the oil and it has not changed, so what I need to do, what should I do now? How do I trip that sensor so it will go back to normal?

thanks

PERFORM SERVICE MESSAGE RESET - PROCEDURE 1
This vehicle may be equipped with an optional Vehicle Information Center (VIC). A PERFORM SERVICE message is displayed when "miles/kms to service" is zero, indicating that regular service and maintenance is due. To reset counter, turn ignition on, then press SELECT button momentarily, then press and hold SET button for at least 2 seconds.
PERFORM SERVICE MESSAGE RESET - PROCEDURE 2
The Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) displays a PERFORM SERVICE message when distance to service interval has been reached, indicating that regular service and maintenance is due. After performing necessary services, reset service distance by selecting a distance to service interval.
To program EVIC, turn ignition switch to ON position. Depress and release MENU push button until SERVICE INTV. = Is displayed. Press and release STEP button to step through available options. The last selected distance option displayed becomes the service interval at which the PERFORM SERVICE message will be displayed.
If a new distance interval is selected, RESET SERVICE DISTANCE? With a yes or no option. When YES is selected, the accumulated distance since the last previous PERFORM SERVICE message will be reset to zero because the service interval has been changed. When NO is selected, the distance until the next PERFORM SERVICE message is reduced by the accumulated distance since the last pervious message.
EVIC exits programming mode and returns to its normal operation mode when the C/T button is depressed or when the end of the programmable feature menu list is reached, whichever occurs first.
