Default Oil Change Light?

I've had my '98 318TI for about 5 year now. I purchased a peak tool to read and reset check engine lights. When reading the instructions it mentioned something about reseting the oil change light. Where is this oil change light located? I've never seen it on my dashboard. Would the Oil Change light burn out?

You realize the oil/service lights are only on for a few seconds when you start the car, right?

@KSKarl: Yeah, I'm supposing that it acts just like the inspection lights, but in my case I've never seen the display pop up at all or I would have noticed.

Wondering if there is something that I should try before I try to remove the dash. Is there a fuse or something else that might have blown?

No need to remove the dash to get to the lights, just remove the cluster. Two torx screws, 3 connections on the back of the cluster.
