Oil and wrench indicator

I was driving my 2018 yesterday and the oil and wrench indicator came on. The manual told me to pull over, shut it off and get it towed. Any clue on what this might be? Oil level was fine. The manual said the oil indicator could be low oil pressure. I am surprised that if the manual told me to shut it off, it sounds like a major problem, but it’s strange that the indicators were not very apparent, (not blinking or in a different color)

What are the fault codes? Without a fault code it will be hard to diagnose anything.

You sure it's not just reminding you to change the oil?

there is a post elsewhere on this forum with the solution..............

turn key on, but don't crank or start engine
step on both accelerator and brake pedal at same time and hold

hold until icons flash and the oil service schedule should reset and lights go out

This isn't a secret procedure. It is in everyone's owners manual.

Wrench either rushed or forget

Ive taken my 350 Transit to 3 different dealers over it lifetime, 170,000 miles and one transmission later, they always forget to adjust tire pressures on tire rotations, and oil change indicators on oil changes. I've just know that after a service, I learn the TPS sensors, and reset the oil life.

The dealer said there are no indicators on and their are no fault codes. I’m concerned because I’ll be taking this on a trip soon.
