So in this case, you should know when you should reset your oil life indicator.
Why Should You Know How To Reset Oil Life On Jeep Wrangler 2017s?
You might not expect it, but it’s actually super-duper important to reset your vehicle’s oil life indicator every once in a while. That is because if you don’t, your vehicle won’t be able to properly gauge your vehicle’s oil life capacity.
And this will definitely bring a lot of confusion as well as cost you quite a bit if you are ever unaware of your vehicle’s oil life and are relying entirely on your vehicle’s oil life indicator. That is why it is almost always absolutely and most definitely recommended that you know how to reset oil life on Jeep Wrangler 2017s.

Quick note, you don’t have to turn on the engine though, so you don’t have to worry about wasting fuel in the meantime.
