Turn the ignition to the "ON" position. with the engine NOT running. With the ignition in the "ON" position press the gas pedal down to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds. The light should flash twice. If it doesn't you need to try resetting it again.

I have a 97 Chevy Lumina. It has 276,*** miles on it. I bought it used 4 months ago. It was running excellent then the service engine soon light, low coolant light, and change oil soon light started coming...


The fact that the oil was low would not be from the oil pump, but from wear in the engine. If it is not smoking when you start it or as you drive, you can probably keep it running by just keeping the oil level checked at each fuel fill-up. As for the car shutting off, you didn't say if the engine seized or got real hot. A low oil pressure problem should have triggered a warning light before the problem got to the point where you lost the engine.

If the car ran after you added the oil, you got lucky and need to always check it.

99 Lumina - had an oil change. change oil soon light is still on. Now engine light is coming on.


If the engine light is on, then I would have an OBD-II Scanner get the codes out of the computer to see what may be causing this error.

The change oil soon light should be reset after changing the oil.

Service Engine Soon light reset.


The Service Engine Soon light comes only when the engine computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, it is not related to the oil change, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

I have a 2001 chev s10 it has the service engine soon light and the scanner does not read it.how can i turn it off.


Try this... turn ignition key to "ON" setting without starting engine.
Pump the accelerator pedal three times rapidly. The light should go off.
I have used this on my Chev and GM vehicles after doing an oil change myself and it always works.

1997chevylumina3.1 check engine light on after


You can reset the light by disconnecting the negative battery cable for about 30 minutes. If there is still an issue with the car after running the car after reconnecting the battery it will come back on. You will need to have it checked with diagnostic tool.

Signal displaying


That is the check engine light, it is either a fault in the engine oil or cooling, or the emission system, consult the owners manual, it explains these indicators, in any event don't drive the car until you are sure there is not a fault with the engine, if it is just the emission fault light then you can drive it for a while.
