Does Dodge Caravan have oil change indicator?

I have the Dodge Caravan CVP with 5k+ KM and no oil change indication. As per the manual, it mention an indicator light for oil change.

Can anyone confirm this information?

Thank You,

Most vehicles today only show the indicator after 8000km or more. Apparently your Caravan can go 13,000km between changes, based on a quick google search. The oil change indicator is duty cycle based, not mileage based. Read your owner's manual!

Modern Dodge vehicles, the oil change service reminder will show up on the dash screen between your 2 gauges(speedo and tach).

Edit: I just realized the CVP doesn't have this screen. I'll have the much older reminder and simply say "CHANGE OIL" after starting it where the odometer is.
