Question about 2004 Chevrolet Impala

Change oil indicator light remains on

I believe my Mom's car is a 2004 Chevy Impala. Oil light remains on even after oil has been changed. She has dementia and I'm trying to figure this out without upsetting her. She will not read me the manual!!

The same thing happened with a 'low tire' indicator light, but the service station figured it out. Can anybody tell me how to reset the indicators lights on this car? Any suggestions?

Thanx so much!!

    Unfortunately I am in Austin, TX and the car is in Tulsa, OK. Mom is sliding into dementia and cannot "find" the manual (which I know is in the glovebox.



    Appreciate your help!

Turn the key to the on postion. turn off the radio. push the station trun knob in in tell the message comes on where the station info is. push the arrows to the right of the knob and find oil reset. push the arrows in tell it says exit. push the station knob again and it will reset. this works on all things that need to be reset.

There are codes to reset it after the oil has been changed. My car is an 2001 and i have to pump the gas pedal 4 times to reset it when the car is off. Look in the manual it should say in there.

How to reset the oil change light on a 2002 chevy impala


It should be in your owners manual. On most models you either depress the gas pedal three times or go into the settings thru the radio controls to reset the oil change reminder.
Let me know if you need me to cut and paste the directions.

Oil pressure light on after oil was changed


I would call whomever did the oil change as soon as possible. They may have not put the cap back on or may have not even put the oil in. Don't drive it! Without oil your engine will damage itself pretty badly.

There should be a reset button in the fuse pannel. It can be used to reset the low tire pressure light , and the change oil light.
Instructions should be in owners manual , or you can google it.
Chevy dealership should do it for free in my opinion.

Most likely, it is a service light. It is telling you to change your oil. It does this on a regular interval, not because it needs it.
You should be able to turn off the light by using a code reader. Select erase codes.

Reset oil change


TURN IGNITION KEY TO ON POSITION THEN BACK TO OFF 3 TIMES 3RD TIME LEAVE IT IN ON POSITON THEN DEPRESS GAS PETAL TO FLOOR 3 TIMES. TURN KEY OFF SHOULD BE RESET

Push the next button on the radio until you see the word reset then push the tune nob again. this will reset the oil timer on the car and change oil light should turn off.
