Question Oil Change Message

So I have a new 10' Ram CC w/Hemi. It just turned 2500 miles today and I got a message that an oil change is due. The owners manual says every 6,000 miles to change the oil. I think it calculates when a change is due by hours, temperatures, and such. Will the next oil change reminder come on again at 2,500 miles again? Or is this something to do with break-in? Has anyone else got this message this early? I don't let my truck idle, and I have not pulled anything heavy yet. I have owned Chevs in the past and would not get a oil change reminder until around 5,000 miles. Funny thing is the dealer just changed the oil a couple of weeks ago and must have not reset the reminder.

You are correct and yes, it will turn again at 2500 miles if the PCM determines that your driving habits fit a severe service interval.

I just had mine come on at 4200km (2600 miles). I reset it and have the oil and filter for the change (just have to find some time). Not too worried as it still looks pretty clean. I was going to wait until 5000km to change it since I'm going to 100% synthetic Amsoil.

I was told the computor takes into consideration your driving habbits and some how measures the viscosity of the oil.

For sure it takes into account duty cycle, just can't see how it can measure viscosity (never heard of that being measured before) .

I drove my truck from Virginia Beach to Pensacola put on about 3000 miles so far in 3 weeks, no oil change light message but it was all highway. I still have to drive back so will see on the road Tuesday.

Mine came on pretty darn close to 2500 miles and most of the miles have been highway... I'm wondering if some trucks don't have a "modified" computer calculation.

Based on my previous Rams....the first OC reminder appears to come on a little earlier than the subsequent ones do.
