Turn key on, push display to where it shows engine oil life remaining, push and hold the button with the check mark for 5 sec. The percentage will flash and reset to 100. IT MAY TAKE SEVERAL TRYS!!!!! Last time for me it took 6 trys, but it works....

GM OIL LIFE SYSTEM - RESETTING
The engine oil life monitor will indicate when to change the engine oil - usually between 5 000 km (3,000 miles) and 16 000 km (10,000 miles) since the last oil change. Under severe conditions, the "CHANGE OIL SOON" light may be displayed before 5 000 km (3,000 miles). The vehicle must not be driven more than 16 000 km (10,000 miles) or 12 months without an oil change.

Reset the oil life monitor when the oil has been changed, use the following procedure:
  1. Turn the ignition key to the RUN position.
  2. Fully push and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds.
  3. If the Change Oil Soon light flashes, the system is resetting.
  4. Start the vehicle.
  5. The oil life will change to 100%.
  6. If the Change Oil Soon light comes back on, the system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

Reset change oil light


hello, here is the instructions on how to reset the light

When the system has calculated that oil life has been diminished, it will indicate that an oil change is necessary. A CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message will come on. Change the engine oil as soon as possible within the next 600 miles (1000 km). It is possible that, if driving under the best conditions, the oil life may not indicate that an oil change is necessary for over a year. However, the engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and at this time the system must be reset.
If the system is ever reset accidentally, change the engine oil at 3000 miles (5000 km) since last oil change.
To reset the Engine Oil Life System, do the following:
  1. Turn the ignition to ON, with the engine off.
  2. Slowly fully press and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds.
  3. The reset is complete when the chimes sound and the CHANGE OIL lamp goes out. If the lamp stays on and no chime is heard, repeat the reset procedure.
  4. Turn the key to OFF.
If the CHANGE OIL lamp comes back on when the vehicle is started, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

When i changed oil i forgot to follow the corect proceedures,so now i reading in dashboard of my car . change oil soon . later i follow the proceedures in cataluge , but same sentence appear pls. advise


this light is triggered only by miles. you will probably need to go to the dealer to reset this light. in the meantime try this: 1. Turn the key to the "ACC" position which is the notch that allows power but doesn't turn the engine.
2. The display will read change engine oil soon - hit the display button(i) and the display will read 0% oil life.
3. Hit reset button (the check mark button) for 5 seconds and the display will change to 100 % oil life.
4. It may not work the 1st,2nd,3rd .... attempt , but will work eventually.

1999 Pontiac Grand Prix lights are staying on


what is the procedure you are using can you explain it to me?
Resetting Procedure

To reset the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator if equipped with the Driver Information Center (DIC).

  1. Turn the ignition to ON without starting the engine.
  2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds.
    • If the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator flashes two times, the system is resetting. Turn the ignition key to OFF then start the vehicle.
    • If the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator comes on and stays on, repeat the procedure.
To reset the OIL LIFE indicator if equipped with a Trip Computer.

  1. Press the trip MODE button until the light appears next to OIL LIFE.
  2. Press and hold the trip RESET button until the oil life percentage changes to 100%.
Hope this helps Ill look into the ABS lights but I do believe that you will need a scan tool to retreive a code to be able to diagnose the reason for the lights

Change engine oil soon light


I had the same problem what worked for me was to turn the key to run (without starting engine) go to the oil life screen and then press and hold the check mark button for several seconds. The oil life went back to 100 % instantly.

You are able to reset it. The directions are in your manual:

1. press the options button under the screen utnil ENGINE OIL MONITOR appears on the DIC screen

2. Press the set/reset button to reset the system

The next screen indicates that the engine oil monitor system has been reset.

If the message is still on...try steps again
