check engine light????

Our MH is a 2007 Pace Arrow 38P,on a W24 chassis with the 8.1. On the road earlier today for a short trip. My dash board message alert said "change engine oil", not long after this my check engine light came on, is this engine light associated with the engine oil change alert? If it is how do I clear the engine light?

You need a ODBII code reader to see what is going on. Does not have to be a fancy expensive one.

Unfortunately I do not think the two are related.

To clear the "change engine oil" message turn the ignition to the on position (no not start the engine), depress the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds, turn off the ignition. Next time you start the engine the "change engine oil" message will not display.

Make sure to get your oil changed if needed.

Have you checked your oil level?

You can also purchase a Scan Gauge from Oemy's, you will be able to retrieve the code and make the repair.

Best of luck.

Ill disagree with that. Though you dont need to pay a WH dealer a stupid labor rate... an A/C Delco certified shop can scan it just the same or better.
The handhelds dont seem to work very well.

Drive to an Autozone or Advance auto parts store, they will scan it for you for free. Then google the code it set. After they read the code, have them clear it. It might set the code again or it might not.

A Scan Gauge II works pretty code for reading and resetting the codes.

Reset Change Oil - key on no start, press the accelerator pedal 3 time in 5 secs

Well boys, I check my gas cap and disconnected the chassis battery, still the same light. I'm trying to locate someone who might have a scan gauge.

Although mine has the option to "clear codes" when scrolling through the menu... it does not read them. Even if I deliberately try to trigger a code.

Dealers around here charge $120 for a "scan" or simple diagnosis. Now by simple I mean... if you have a flat tire they will look at it and say "You have a flat tire"... then try to charge you $120 for it. My A/C delco shop did the scan for free.
And I would not trust an autoparts store. Simply for the reason they are stocked with staff that know absolutely nothing.

Have a "smart" phone? You can buy a dongle to read the codes for you also... OTherwise, my vote is for autozone. No use at guessing at the code.

My ScanGauge II reads the codes. It does not translate them but I can look them up on th eInternet fairly easily.
