You must be doing a step wrong, read the instructions carefully, you have missed something, have seen this before, customer says they can't get it to reset, I try and no problem.

Reset oil change milage


GM OIL LIFE SYSTEM - RESETTING
The engine oil life monitor will indicate when to change the engine oil - usually between 5 000 km (3,000 miles) and 16 000 km (10,000 miles) since the last oil change. Under severe conditions, the "CHANGE OIL SOON" light may be displayed before 5 000 km (3,000 miles). The vehicle must not be driven more than 16 000 km (10,000 miles) or 12 months without an oil change.

Reset the oil life monitor when the oil has been changed, use the following procedure:
  1. Turn the ignition key to the RUN position.
  2. Fully push and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds.
  3. If the Change Oil Soon light flashes, the system is resetting.
  4. Start the vehicle.
  5. The oil life will change to 100%.
  6. If the Change Oil Soon light comes back on, the system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

Hi ! I have a g3 and I would like to reset the sensor for the oil because I change my own oil at home. thank you


Read your owners manual. Turn engine off, then turn key to ON position. Depress brake three times slowly within five seconds and then turn key OFF. Then turn key ON. The oil change light should be reset. Who knows. The "GM" was made in Korea. Lots of luck. Now, if I could just figue out how to turn off the "blinking hold light". What a mess.

Blinking oil light on 2003 Mazda Protege. Changed oil and oil filter as well as oil sensor. Light still blinks when the car is idled up.


You need to reset your change oil warning light. To do this, turn the ignition key to on but do not turn over the engine. Then rapidly push down the gas pedal three times. This will reset the system and turn off the blinking light. Then when you drive another 3000 miles, that light will once again tell you it is time to have your oil changed. J.

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE OIL LEVEL ON THE COMPUTER FOR A 2003 CHEV TRAILBLAZER. IT IS ALL COMUTERIZED AND I HAVE TRIED WORKING WITH THE BUTTONS BUT IT DOES NOT WORK, WHAT AM I DOING WRONG. MY FRIEND CHANGED...


Ok you cant change the oil level, you need to reset the oil change light, right???. Scroll until it reads OIL LIFE , now find the button that looks like a backwards "L" with an arrow on the lower leg, now hold that button in until the oil life resets. Oil life is based on the correct oil used, be sure it meets GM 6094 Spec. If its not synthetic, its not good enough.

Maintence light blinking 7 times, what does that mean?


Hello.

Your Maintnance Light is blinking because your vehicle is nearing its recommended oil change interval.

The Light blinks when you reach 4,500 miles, and will come on, and remain on steady, after 5,000 miles,

If you had your oil changed recently, your light was not reset. Changing the oil does not reset the light. It must be manually reset, via a button on the dash; this procedure is explained in your owner's manual

OIL SENSOR LIGHT ON 2001 Audi 2.8liter


It could simply be maybe the person changing your oil never reset the light? or you have a oil pressure sensor leaking or not working.
most of the time its someone never reset the oil change light. even before it goes on it goes by mileage, so maybe it didnt go off yet cause you cnahged it a tad early.so noone even tried to reset it.

I guess you could have an oil pressure problem, but thats going the extreme route.. but if nothing else shows that could be a problem.

Change Oil Soon light won't go off even after changing the oil.


You are able to reset it. The directions are in your manual:

1. press the options button under the screen utnil ENGINE OIL MONITOR appears on the DIC screen

2. Press the set/reset button to reset the system

The next screen indicates that the engine oil monitor system has been reset.

If the message is still on...try steps again
