If you look under the hood there is a black box it is the fuse box. pop cover off and you will see a little red button in there this is your oil reset. Turn key on engine off and hold button down for 15 seconds light should start flashing this will indicate it is reset.

Why does the Change Oil light stay on 15 seconds after starting car?


Try re-setting the oil change light and see if it quits. Should re-set itself. Not oil sending unit, that tells computer and light when there is a problem like no oil pressure.

Oil pressure light stays on even though the oil level is fine


That could be from not having any oil pressure "oil pump failure, clogged filter, etc" or from a faulty oil pressure sending unit. More tests would need to be performed but is it really an oil pressure light or is it the change oil light. More info would be needed

I have a 97 Acura RL,engine light stays on even after O2 sensor is disconnected.I've changed out plugs& checked omhs on coils.Did a compression check on cylinders, 50-80.Do have oil on plugs,


To review, the check engine light will stay on until the problem is fixed and the code or codes are erased. And if the O2 sensor is disconnected the light will stay on for sure.
Do you have the trouble codes stored in the computer ?
FYI - the cylinders should have over 100psi of compression.

My change oil light never goes off even though I had it changed and now my service vehicle soon light is on even though its been running fine


The change oil light needs to be reset after each oil change...some shops are not knowledgeable on how to do this...Your owners manual will instruct you how to reset the oil change light...The service engine soon is a catch all for low fluids and other needs...Be sure to check your oil level again...to clear the service engine soon light, you can disconnect either battery cable for 15 minutes then reconnect...if the service engine stays on...then you need to have your Grand Am checked...Auto Zone does a free diagnostic of check engine light codes...:)

How do you reset the oil change light in 91 caddy devill


Disconnect the battery for 15 minutes and hook it back up that should reset any lights on the dash because it resets the computer. If the oil light stays on, you might have low oil or maybe even a faulty oil sending unit that is tell the computer there is no oil when there is oil.

Check oil light stays on even after a full oil change


The oil pan has a sensor in it that need to be replaced. It screws in and you may lose some oil.

you most likely need to take the cat to a saturn dealership to have the code reset for the oil change light. Saturn is notorious for designing their cars so that it is necessary to the dealership for repairs.
