Change Oil Light Issue
I changed my oil about 1k miles ago and then all of a sudden the "Change Oil" light started coming on for maybe 10 seconds right away when I start the engine and then it goes away. It will periodically turn on and off again when I am driving as well, but never stay on for more than 10 seconds or so. I checked the oil level and there is plenty of oil. The oil pressure gauge is also not out of normal operating range. I am not sure what would cause this or how to resolve it. Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.

Turn key on, tap gas pedal to floor a few times (forgot how many), turn key off, then turn key back on and it should flash then go away.
If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger cheater bar.

this light will come on with MY VEHICLES about every 5,000 miles or so.
reset the oil change monitor at every oil change.
