To reset the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator if equipped with the Driver Information Center (DIC).

  1. Turn the ignition to ON without starting the engine.
  2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds.
    • If the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator flashes two times, the system is resetting. Turn the ignition key to OFF then start the vehicle.

To reset the OIL LIFE indicator if equipped with a Trip Computer.

  1. Press the trip MODE button until the light appears next to OIL LIFE.
  2. Press and hold the trip RESET button until the oil life percentage changes to 100%.
Hope this helps Ill look into the ABS lights but I do believe that you will need a scan tool to retreive a code to be able to diagnose the reason for the lights

1999 pontiac grand prix service engine light soon is on, what does it mean ?


The service engine soon light is an indicator /reminder for you to do some type of maintanence work on your vehicle, depending upon your mileage that you have accumulated on your car dictates the sort of maintanence needed on the car.
Can either be as simple as an oil change or as complicated as a major service/tuneup, oil change, transmission change, wheel alignment, brake inspect, tire rotation etc.
Once the work is performed the technician must turn off the light.
Reference the dealership or reliable repair shop for further information.

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix - multi-fuse related problems.The A/C keeps shorting out and the garage replaces the fuse. Where is the fuse box for the A/C located? Also, the radio display is dim/non existent...


I can't answer because I have other question open, sorry, but here I send any comments and clues to solve (I hope).

For the FUSE PANEL, location and description, I suggest check the 2000-Pontiac-Grand-Prix-Owners-Manual (page 330 and next). A/C have one "diode". Check it.

About your radio display, sound like a internal problem, keep in mind that the CD is working.

The Security Litgh, its possible that you have any problem with the THEFT system or any aftermark alarm (if you have).

I have a 1999 pontiac grand am I purchased from an auction my senior year of high school. a 2 months after I bought it the change oil light came on and has never gone off. in the three years that I've had...


The change oil light must be reset by you manually. Procedure listed in your owner's manual. The ABS light is on because there is a problem with the Anti-Lock brake system. Normal braking will still work. This needs to be looked at by a professional The Trac Off light is on because the Traction Control is turned off. Turn it back on. There is a button somewhere to turn it on and off. Maybe be on the shifter. The Service Engine light is on because there is a problem with the emissions control system. Have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scan tool to recover the fault code. This code will help to diagnose the problem.

Change oil soon light. how to get it to shut off


Answer The "change oil" light on a 2001 Grand Prix is reset by pressing the gas pedal three times while the vehicle is in "accessory" mode:

1. Turn the car off.
2. Place the ignition key in the "on" position, without starting the car. That is, turn the key forward to the place right before it fires the engine.
3. Place your foot on the gas pedal and press it all the way down three times, waiting approximately one second between presses.

If done correctly, the "change oil" light will flash repeatedly, and will then reset.

Please note that it is rare to do this successfully on the first try; if it does not work, turn the car off and try the procedure again, varying the wait slightly between pedal presses at each attempt
