Hello there. If the oil light that you are referring to is the oil change warning light, it might be possible that a code is stuck in the ECU, which is why completing the manual reset may not be working. In order to resolve this problem, you’ll have to contact a local mechanic to complete a warning light inspection; where the mechanic will download the stored error code and reset it.
