How do I check and replace engine oil sensor.


Knowing how these gauges work , I'd say you have an instrument cluster problem not oil sender unit. 2003 - 2006 GM had bad stepper motors in the instrument cluster . If there was a problem with the oil sender the gauge would default to zero .
Engine Oil Pressure Gage
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the engine oil pressure as determined by the powertrain control module (PCM). The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine oil pressure. The engine oil pressure gage defaults to 0 kPa (0 psi) or below if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine oil pressure sensor circuit.

?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

If you don't know what class 2 serial data communications are ,google it. How to repair GM Instrument Cluster Speedometer Gauge Stepper

How do i reset oil change ligth on 2006 hummer h3 after oil change thanks from moises


To reset your maintenance reminder system (even if the light hasn’t come on yet), you’ll need to turn your key to on (but don’t start!) and make sure your odometer is on TRIP A. Then key off. Press and hold the Odometer/Trip button. While holding down on the button, key the ignition to on (Don’t start the engine!) The display panel will count down from “------“ to “-“Continue pressing the button until the Trip A is displayed. After this step, you are done.

Notes ENGINE OIL LIFE SYSTEM

HOW TO RESET THE ENGINE OIL LIFE SYSTEM
The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change your engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Anytime your oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where you change your oil prior to a "CHANGE ENGINE OIL" message being turned on, reset the system.

  1. With the ignition key in "RUN" but the engine off, repeatedly push the trip/reset button until "OIL" is displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIC).
  2. Once "OIL" is displayed, push and hold the trip/reset button for five seconds. The number will disappear and be replaced by 100 (indicating 100% oil life remaining).
  3. Turn the key to "OFF". If the "CHANGE ENGINE OIL" message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
If this does not work you may have a problem with your instrument cluster.

Had Oil Changed...Now I Can't SEE my INFORMATION DISPLAY!


  • The message center display is blank
  • Instrument cluster.
  • INSTALL a new instrument cluster. REFER to Section 413-01 .


see owners manual for information




Principles of Operation
The message center is a vacuum fluorescent display, part of the instrument cluster. The message center electronic functions use both hardwired, standard corporate protocol (SCP), and UART based protocal (UBP) communication networks to transmit and receive information. As a technician it is very important to understand:
  • where the input (command) originates from.
  • all the information (messages) necessary in order for a feature to operate.
  • which module(s) receive(s) the input or command message.
  • does the module which receieved the input (message) control the input of the feature, or does it output a message over the SCP communication network to another module?
  • which module controls the output of the feature.
The message center provides the following features:
  • information displays
  • setup displays
  • warning messages
  • system check messages
The message center information can be selected through a set of three bottons:
  • INFO
  • SETUP
  • RESET
