Oil light on dash flashes

Hi, the oil light/diagram (not change oil indicator) flashed this past weekend. It did so for about 10 minutes and went off. Had the oil changed less than a month ago so not sure what the problem is. Looked for the manual and can't locate it. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Check engine light flashing in 2006 chevy hhr


If it is running rough & no check engine light on then the first thing I would to is tune it up. If you have a check engine light then pay someone to diagnosis it & go from there. Usually when the light comes on there is a more promenient issue; that is WHY the light continues to flash.

you need to get a new ign. lock cylinder and chip key. Or you can get a lock cylinder and copy your old key with a regular key no chip. Take new cylinder, put old chip key in it. Plug into harness at the bottom of steering column just behind the dash, fine orange wire from existing one in the column. Hide lock cylinder under dash and start car with copy of old key.

Reset change engine oil light


Information taken from: http://www.idavette.net/tech/oilreset.htm

[quote]
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.

How do I clear the " change Oil" dash light after an oil change?


  1. Turn the ignition to ON; do not start the engine.
  2. Fully depress and release the accelerator pedal slowly 3 times within 5 seconds.
  3. If the CHANGE OIL indicator flashes, the system is resetting.
  4. Turn the ignition to OFF after the indicator has finished flashing, then start the vehicle. If the CHANGE OIL indicator comes back on, the engine oil life monitor has not reset; repeat the procedure.

Reset service indicator light


On a 2008, thurn the key to the ACC position. Hold down the reset button for about 10sec on the dash until the whole display starts flashing.
When the whole display is flashing, hold down the reset button again for about 10sec. the OIL LIFE will go to 100%.
