There is a procedure for resetting the lamp. The lamp is purely mileage based and will come on every 3000 miles. Try this:
Sit in your Chrysler Sebring's driver-side seat. Put the key in, and then turn it to "On/Run." Starting the engine is not required.

Push the accelerator pedal to the floor three times; be sure to do this fairly quickly (within 10 seconds).

Turn the key to "Lock" and remove it. Re-insert it, and then start the engine. Verify that the oil message is gone.

Was the service reminder light ever reset? It has to be manually reset, it does not reset itsef! Check out your owners manual for more info.
