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