Yes they should have reset the oil change light for you, but most don't, the reset procedure is in the owners manual, it is easy to use, but varies from model to model.

My pontiac g6 2007 says the oil is at 20% what does this mean


That is your Oil Life indicator. That means that is is almost time for an oil change. If your oil has recently been changed, then it was not reset when the oil was changed.

This information is covered in the Owner's Manual for your vehicle on page 211.

If you do not have an Owner's Manual, You can get a free PDF version at the link below.

The service engine soon light will not go out and oil has just been changed.


The service engine soon light and change oil indicator are 2 different things. The change oil indicator in the information center is reset by pushing the gas peddle all the way to the floor and letting it up all the way with the key in the run position with the engine off.
The service engine soon is a tell tail light letting you know that there is a problem with the way the engine is running. It has nothing to do with preventive maintenance.

The "Change Oil" indicator is reset by using a sequence of Driver Information Center (DIC) key presses as follows:

1. Turn ignition "ON", but do not start engine. (ALDL pin "G" should NOT be grounded.)
2. Press the "ENG/MET" button and release, then, within 5 seconds, press it again.
3. Within 5 seconds of Step 2, press and hold the "GAUGES" button. While the button is held, the "Change Oil" indicator will flash.
4. Continue holding the "GAUGES" button until the "Change Oil" indicator stops flashing and goes out, indicating successful completion of the reset cycle. This should take about 10 seconds.
If it does not successfully reset, turn ignition "OFF" and repeat the procedure from Step 1.

MY INFORMATION DISPLAY DIAPPEARED


If you believe it genuinely happened at the oil change center, then I would tell the manager or boss that they have to repair it by law without charging you a single penny.
good luck

Had Oil Changed...Now I Can't SEE my INFORMATION DISPLAY!


  • The message center display is blank
  • Instrument cluster.
  • INSTALL a new instrument cluster. REFER to Section 413-01 .


see owners manual for information




Principles of Operation
The message center is a vacuum fluorescent display, part of the instrument cluster. The message center electronic functions use both hardwired, standard corporate protocol (SCP), and UART based protocal (UBP) communication networks to transmit and receive information. As a technician it is very important to understand:
  • where the input (command) originates from.
  • all the information (messages) necessary in order for a feature to operate.
  • which module(s) receive(s) the input or command message.
  • does the module which receieved the input (message) control the input of the feature, or does it output a message over the SCP communication network to another module?
  • which module controls the output of the feature.
The message center provides the following features:
  • information displays
  • setup displays
  • warning messages
  • system check messages
The message center information can be selected through a set of three bottons:
  • INFO
  • SETUP
  • RESET
