You can reset it


Normally change once per year regardless of km

you can stretch it to 2 yr but i wouldnt

Most manufacturers recommend 6-12 month or 15000km max

these drink oil for fun, if it says add oil then you add oil! I think they have 1litre/1000miles or so anyway, probably needs topping up not a full oil change.

No it is not about adding oil.
It is about service oil lights in yellow oil due.

Thank you.

Change your oil.
Fluids age too - that is why car manufacturers recommend specific frequency and/or mileage.
Brake fluid is every 2 years, why? Because it absorbs moisture.

Yeah I would change it. It’s not only about the miles on the oil, but how long it’s been sitting around too.
