The oil change warning comes on after a set number of KMS,
I had mine come on recently, so i reset it with FiatECU, it had counted down from 25k KMS.
when i reset it the counter went back up to 25k
If there was any other kind of oil quality sensor then you oil change light wouldn;t have come on only 3k after an early change. (It would have detected the better than expected quality of oil and not displayed the message)
I have to top up my oil between 500ml and 1l a week so I have an almost complete change of oil every month or so and my light still came back on after 25k KMS.
If your EML has come on and your car went into limp mode I would think there is something wrong, possibly blocked DPF (I've just had that as my regens were disabled) or maybe something worse!
Get it checked and find out what the code is.......
