Actually mileage or kilometers has nothing to do with the oil change light. It uses the revolutions of the engine to calculate when the oil needs changing. Its much more accurate that way, if you drove 3000 miles in 4th gear or 3000 miles in 6th gear (6 speed manual) there is alot of difference in revolutions of the engine.
I'm not sure what you mean about better instructions to turn the oil change light off. Just follow the instructions step by step and it should work. If not you may need to take it in to a dealership to have it looked at. :seeya

Turning off the change oil light
1) Turn the ignition "ON", but do start the engine.
2) Press the "ENG/MET"button and release, then, within 5 seconds, press it again.
3) Within 5 seconds of step 2, press and hold the "GAUGES" button. While the button is held, the "change oil" indicator will flash.
4) Continue holding the "GAUGES" button until the "change oil" indicator stops flashing and goes out, indicating successful completion of the reset cycle. This should take about 10 seconds. If it does not successfully reset, turn the ignition "OFF" and repeat the procedure from step 1.
