How to Reset the Change Oil Light

After changing the engine oil, the system must be reset.

With the ignition key to ON, push the RESET button

located in the driver's side instrument panel fuse block. The

CHANGE OIL light will start to flash, press and hold the

RESET button again. The reset is complete when you hear
the chimes sound and the CHANGE OIL light goes out.

On a 2000 alero, you turn on the ignition key and push the gas petal all the way down 3 times within 5 seconds-the change oil light will flash, and it is then reset to 100 percent

Reset oil change light on 2004 Oldsmobile Alero or Bravada w/o (DIC) Driver...


I see alot of people cant figure out how to reset there oil change light on a 2004 Oldsmobile Alero/ Bravade w/o (DIC) driver information center. To do this follow the steps below.
Turn the ignition to ON, with the engine off. Fully depress and release the accelerator pedal slowly three times within five seconds. The reset is complete when you hear the chimes and the “CHANGE OIL” light goes out. If the light stays on and no chime is heard, you will need to repeat the reset procedure. Turn the key to OFF. If the “CHANGE ENGINE OIL” message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
and its as easy as that and now you can change your oil on your own and not need a dealership to reset it for you.

Just had oil change done on my 2000 alero now my service engine soon light is on.I want to know what this means


It simply means that the service indicator was not reset when the oil was changed. If the oil was changed professionally, then resetting the service indicator is usually part of the job.

It's not just a reminder to change the oil, it's also there to remind you to check/adjust/lubricate/replace other items such as the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, dampers (UK=shock absorbers) etc.

The service indicator is simply a dumb counter keyed to mileage and time elapsed and cannot sense when you have completed a service. Resetting the indicator requires a special tool so you'll need to take your car to a suitably equipped garage.

Change oil light


After you change your oil you must reset your system to start tracking your next oil change. Simply take off your fuse panel cover. There is a red button in there marked RESET. To do this simply turn your ignition switch on (not started). Then press the RESET button once. You will now see your Change Oil Light blinking. Hold down on the button until you hear it beep. Turn off your ignition switch. Now start your Alero, the light should be off.
