Question Change Oil Light

I took 250 mile trip today and when I got back my change oil light came on. I recently had my 1st oil change at 2,000 miles and now it only has 3,500. Is this programmed to come on at 3,500 miles? I checked the oil level and it seems to be fine. I am hoping this is the case and the dealer just forgot to reset it when I had my 1st change. I have not looked at manuel but I assume you can reset it without going to the dealer?

Yes it is an easy adjustment, i have gone to synthetic motor oil & have to do it every time

I change my motor oil every 5000 miles or as soon after as work allows it
I do long driving trips at work, sometimes coast to coast
