After you change your oil you must reset your system to start tracking your next oil change. Simply take off your fuse panel cover. There is a red button in there marked RESET. To do this simply turn your ignition switch on (not started). Then press the RESET button once. You will now see your Change Oil Light blinking. Hold down on the button until you hear it beep. Turn off your ignition switch. Now start your Alero, the light should be off.

Unhook the Negative terminal on the battery for about 2 minutes and that should reset it.

SOURCE: light is on even after changing the oil in my 2000 alero

I had the same problem, after bringing it to the mechanic I got a $30 charge for him to tell me that oldsmobile have a setting that does not refresh the sensor light after you get an oil change and to reset in on the fuse, it will continute to go on every 2000 miles. The fuse is located next to the drives side door under the dash board. Hope this helps :-)

It simply means that the service indicator was not reset when the oil was changed. If the oil was changed professionally, then resetting the service indicator is usually part of the job.

It's not just a reminder to change the oil, it's also there to remind you to check/adjust/lubricate/replace other items such as the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, dampers (UK=shock absorbers) etc.

The service indicator is simply a dumb counter keyed to mileage and time elapsed and cannot sense when you have completed a service. Resetting the indicator requires a special tool so you'll need to take your car to a suitably equipped garage.

On the drivers side there is a fuse panel, you will need to remove the cover and there you will see a reset button. Turn the ignition switch to on and then press the button, the light will flash, then press and hold the reset button until the light goes off, this will also work for the TPS system. Hope that helps

I have a 2000 olds alero, how do i reset the change moil light


If you mean the change oil soon light............ Open the fuse panel; on the side of the dash by drivers door. turn on key but not far enough to start car.
Press the red reset button in the fuse panel until the oil light flashes , release the button and then press it again.
It has been a while since I have done this on an alero , so if you have your owners manual , it might be a good idea to read the instructions in there incase i have it wrong. By the way , the low tire pressure light works the same way.
