Reset Oil Change on Aura

I changed oil in my Saturn Aura but could not reset oil monitor. I've done so in the past with no problems. I followed instructions to a tee with no results. Has anyone encountered this problem?

    The manual is worthless-there is no "reset" button like it tells you to hold in for 5 sec. The dealer has to reset the monitor so it reads 100 %.

    Hmmmmm. wonder why that is-they wouldn't show me how to do it.

If you hold down the buttons on the steering wheel like it tells you in the book it should all work. Reset button is the same button you use to reset milage on trip meter.. it doesn't actually say reset

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.

How often do you change the oil on the 2008 aura saturn


I have a 2008 Saturn Aura. Your car should have an oil life system. Depending on how you drive it will turn on a message to tell you to change oil. After you change oil and filter make sure you reset the oil life system. Get in car Turn key on press accelerator all the way to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds. Use 5W30 oil. I use Mobil 1 Extended and change my oil every 6,000 miles. (I'm a retired Cadillac Technician)

Oil change signal still on after oil changed


To reset the oil monitoring system to 100% after each oil change
[approximately 8 000 km (5 000 miles) or 180 days] perform the
following:
1. Press the SETUP control to
access the System Check function
2. Press and release the RESET
control to display “OIL LIFE XX%
HOLD RESET NEW”.
3. Press and hold the RESET
control for 2 seconds to display “IF
NEW OIL HOLD RESET”.
4. Press and hold the RESET
control to display “OIL LIFE SET
TO 100%”. Your oil life is now reset.

This procedure is on pages 69-70 of your owners manual, this is copied and pasted from that manual

Oil maintenece light is on. Oil level is good. Could a clogged filter make this light go on?


This should only be indicating time for an oil change. Now, if the red, check engine light comes on, then you have an oil/engine problem.

Possibly the maintenance light wasn't reset when the last change was done. If you don't have the owners manual to check, I found a referenced method (below) to reset it through AMSOIL synthetic oil products. Good Luck

To reset Engine Oil light. Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine off. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds. If the Change Engine Oil light is flashing, the system is reset. The light will flash for up to 30 seconds or until the ignition is turned off. If the light comes on again and stays on for 30 seconds at the next ignition cycle, it did not reset. You will need to reset the system again.

How can I reset the oil gauge on the dash?


I found that on my 2008 Saturn Aura (4 button DIC) that the following steps must take place to reset the oil life:
1) place ignition switch in run position
2) cycle through features by pressing the info button until the oil life is illuminated
3) depress all 4 DIC buttons at the same time; instrument panel will read "reset oil life"
4) release all buttons
5) depress bottom button (w/left pointing arrow) and oil life will read "acknowledged"

Good luck

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.
