2019 Ram 1500 truck, I change my oil every 3000 miles. The computer tells me "need to change oil even though I just changed it. Early oil change is a cheap way to make the engine last forever. There has to be some way dealerships reset the clock. I hope it does nor require a computer interface to do it ! I got 230K out of my last 2003 truck before it was hit and dented a fender and wracked the hood a little. Insurance declared it a total even though it tracked straight without touching the steering wheel. I loved my shortbed 03. The 2019 is a crew cab = longer wheelbase & took some time to get used to backing it up. I don't like it, but I'm stuck with it. Plus the computer Lies- How do I tell the computer it is WRONG !

You can reset it through the EVIC, ignition on without the engine running.
If there is no option in the EVIC, I think it's turn the ignition on without the engine running and press the accelerator to the floor 3 times completely then turn the ignition off.
If all else fails the instructions on how to reset the oil life monitor is in the owners manual.
I don't think there's a way to turn the monitor off without getting the ECM tuned.

On my 6.4 Hemi - from the manual:

1. Without pushing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE
START/STOP button and place the ignition to the
ON/RUN position (do not start the engine).
2. Push and release the down arrow button to
scroll downward through the main menu to “Vehicle
Info.”
3. Push and release the right arrow button to
access the ”Vehicle Info” screen, then scroll up or
down to select “Oil Life.”
4. Push and hold the right arrow button to select
“Reset”.
5. Push and release the down arrow button to
select “Yes,” then push and release the right
arrow button to reset the Oil Life to 100%.
6. Push and release the up arrow button to exit the
instrument cluster display screen.
_______________________________________________
Secondary Method Of Resetting Engine Oil Life
1. Without pressing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE
START/STOP button and place the ignition to the
ON/RUN position (do not start the engine).
2. Fully press the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times
within ten seconds.
3. Without pushing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE
START/STOP button once to return the ignition to the
OFF position.
NOTE:
If the indicator message illuminates when you start the
vehicle, the oil change indicator system did not reset.
If necessary, repeat this procedure.
