You have to reset the light according to the owner's manual.

If you don't have the owner's manual, try this:

Turn the ignition ON.

Press and hold the Trip/Reset button on the instrument panel for 12 seconds.

The light should flash and then go out. The system is reset.

If that doesn't work, comment back.

    Here's another GM solution:

    Turn the ignition on. (Do not start the vehicle.)

    Press the accelerator down 3 times.

    Turn the ignition off.

    Start the vehicle to see if the light is off.

My 03 avalanche is hemorrhaging oil. When I park it at night, the next morning I see a massive oil spot. I refill the oil. I drive to work, 6 hours later, no oil spots. Only when I park it at night it...

I could not say for certain, but I would guess that the rubber gasket on the oil filter is warping and losing it's seal as the temperature changes. If your avalanche is equipped with an external oil cooler, then the o-rings and gaskets for the remote fittings may be doing the same. I would recommend getting a bottle of engine oil dye from the parts house and letting it run for a while. With this alternative however you will need a U.V. light source to detect the dye and the leak.

2 months ago my 04 avalanche oil pressure was fluctuating from 40 at take off to 10 when going steady 50 mph took to garage they said i needed a oil change and to add a luccas oil stabilizer in it and

The first thing any good technician would do about the oil pressure is remove the sending unit and hook up a mechanical test gage to see what the pressure is, GM oil pressure gages are famous for this very complaint, most likely the oil pressure sending unit is defective. As far as the other problems go it could be related.

04 avalanche- suddenly windows, locks, radio and heated sets dont work, dash board shows airbag light, charge light check engine light,fuel gauge not working,oil change message indicator shows 0 zero oil...

Check for fuses and fusible links that may be tripped or blown.

Next, check for grounding issues someplace easy to reach like the heated seat connectors.

Most dummy lights work by choosing the warning light path over the circuit path when the circuit path is higher resistance. Which may explain your dash warning lights.

So, what I am trying to say are looking for a open ground in a big big under the hood at one of the major fuse/relay/fusible link points.

Check it out. Good luck and be careful.
