I have a 2009 Honda CRV and the other day I noticed that the 15% Oil Life reminder light came on (this is the first time I've seen it) as well as the maintenance (wrench) reminder. So far my car has gone a little over 8300 miles and I had my first oil change about 5300 miles. My first oil change was done by my brother and I didn't do it because of any reminders from the car (so nothing was reset), I just did it because you're supposed to do it every 5000 miles.
I've read around and does this mean that I just need an oil change? It took 3000 more miles for the oil life life reminder to come on, so I'm wondering what caused it to come on so fast only 3000 miles after the first oil change (the oil does meat the standards stated by the drivers manual)? Also, is it possible to reset the oil life light ourselves and will this oil change get rid of the maintenance light as well?
Sorry for all the questions, thanks for your reply, greatly appreciated!!
