Oil Change Due?

My 2017 Macan SD was serviced in May 2019 at a Porsche Centre and is due its next service in May 2021.  However, yesterday it produced a warning message on the dashboard telling me that it was due an oil change in 1000 miles.  I was under the impression that it wouldn't need an oil change until its next service but obviously the car knows better!
 
Has anyone else's Macan produced the same message and if so what, if anything did you do about it?
 
Thanks.

You need to ask someone with a PIWIS to reset the system (or change the oil if that makes you feel happier.)

How many miles have you done since the last service?

I'm speeding because I have to get there before I forget where I'm going.

Ian,
 
Although your Macan Diesel only requires servicing every 20k miles I note that the petrol versions require servicing every 10k miles. I suspect that the technician has mistakenly set the service interval to 10k miles by mistake (hence the 1k mile warning message since you've covered 9k miles) so you need to take the car back to the Dealership to get the interval reset.

Hi Ian
 
I hope this may help. My wife’s Disco Sport has just had a service warning come up, the car doesn’t need a full service for another year. The dealer informs me that the car‘s sensor has detected that the oil quality is diluted, and requires an oil service. Interesting this service is done free whilst in warranty. The problem appears to be that lots of short journeys because of lockdown has caused the problem. Maybe your car has detected the same.
 
I am having a bad week with cars! Dropped my 2016 SD into the dealer yesterday, they have confirmed my thoughts that a new transfer box is required. The warranty ran out in February, I am going to be interested how Porsche UK help me out.
 
All the best

Thanks for the replies.  It seems that there is an oil quality sensor which generates the oil change warning message if it deems that the oil quality is deteriorating.  My local PC has quoted £299 for an oil an filter change, but at least the oil wouldn't need to be changed at the next service.  Still seems expensive for what it is.  I'm waiting to hear from a local indy for their price.

 am afraid  not. When I first called I was put onto the Sytner service line and after that Shock I asked for a service agent in my local OPC. Both quoted £429.30. The local guy is trying to do a deal but can’t get sub £300. I am going to call Perth tomorrow as they are part of a different dealership.
