Would being due for an oil change make the "Service Engine Soon" light come on??

I was due for an oil change 50 miles ago. I have an appointment to get in done at the dealership today. Because it is pass due could that have caused the service engine light to come on?

Never! There's no way for the engine management system to tell the condition of the oil, or the level for that matter.

But if you're relying on the service indicator mileage for the oil change, that's way too many miles (~15k) Most people here from what I've read, change the oil between 5k to 7.5k.
