Inspection light on after oil change

I have checked all the fluids and replaced the oil and oil filter. Now I have an inspect (Inspection light on) in dash. I tried to reset and it remains on during starting only. Can someone tell me what I should do next?

I did this and acts like it reset then the warning comes back on seconds after resetting.

Same. It just removed some of the letters in the warning.

Thanks heaps. My oil warning light appeared after using jumper leafs on to my sons car. Using the reset emergency flashers/ 0.0 set on dash and putting key into start mode without starting did the trick!

For vehicles with ‘Basic Display' (wrench icon and INSPEC_ message)

Reset the Inspection reminder:

1.Switch off the ignition.

2.Switch on the emergency flashers

.3.Push the . button in the instrument cluster and hold down.

4.Switch on the ignition.

5.Release the . button and push the  button in the instrument cluster within about 20 seconds.

6.Switch off the emergency flashers.

To reset Service reminder:

Same process except don't activate hazard lights.

P.S. don't reset Service indicator unless the vehicle has been serviced or incorrect data will be displayed.

You may in fact have too much oil. Apparently their are minor diesel leakage from the injectors into the oil in Amroks. Oil builds up and triggers the warning light. The sensors are really sensitive to excess oil levels.
