Turn off the "Oil Change Required" message????

Anyone know how to turn this off? I had the oil changed the other day with 7 quarts of Mobil 1. A couple days after having the oil changed this warning started popping up when I started the car. I'm assuming there is some way to reset it, but don't know how. I even hooked my predator up went through the clear codes process, but it didn't help.

Thanks in advance!!

Turn the ignition on, hit the gas pedal 3 times, shut the ignition off.

I suppose that only the EVIC cars have the oil change reminder as I've never seen it in my car (13,000 miles).

My R/T displayed the same message and it didn't have the EVIC option.
