Tip & How-To about Oldsmobile Alero

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

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.

how do you reset the change engine oil lite


Hello, it depends on whether or not you have the Driver Information Center (DIC). I'll send you both ways.

Without the DIC, turn the key to the ON position and depress the gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds, the light will flash, turn the key off.
With the DIC, turn the key to the ON position, press the Fuel Information button repeatedly until OIL LIFE is displayed, press and hold the button with the arrow pointing left until 100% is displayed. Turn the key to off.

how do I reset the service engine soon light on 2001 Olds Silhouette


A diagnostic scanner that reads OBD1 (the system by which your vehicle processes trouble codes) will be required, many parts stores do this a s a free service. Check with them to see if they charge. Remember though, when they read the car and turn the light off that in order for the light to stay off, the problem must be fixed. Even if it was a one time fluke of a problem, get the code that their scanner gives them so that you know what the issue is.
