You should be able to go to auto retail store to reset computer. Or you can disconnect negative battery terminal for about ten minutes. If it comes back on most likely you will need to replace the sensor or oil pressure switch.

SOURCE: Just changed my oil on a 2005 Buick Lesabre. The

Most common reset is....... turn on the key (do not start) and depress gas pedal 3 times in 5 seconds.
Remove floor mat to do this.
It should be reset.
You may have to repeat this....it does always take on the first try.

2nd common......push mileage reset until oil life shows......once showing hold button down until 100% oil life shows.

You may have one or the other.

NEED TO RESET OIL CHANGE LIGHT


How to Reset the Engine Oil Life System
The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change the engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Whenever the oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where the oil is changed prior to a CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message being turned on, reset the system.
Always reset the engine oil life to 100% after every oil change. It will not reset itself. To reset the Engine Oil Life System:
Display the OIL LIFE REMAINING on the DIC.
Press and hold the SET/RESET button on the DIC for more than five seconds. The oil life will change to 100%.
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message comes back on when the vehicle is started, the Engine Oil Life System has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

I have a pontiac g6 and my change oil light has been on. i went and got a oil change and nothing happened and i cant see where to put the tRANSNISSION FLUID??


With the "CHANGE OIL SOON" message displayed, press any of the three DIC buttons to clear the "CHANGE OIL SOON" message. Display "OIL LIFE RESET" on the DIC. Press and hold the "ENTER" button for at least one second. An "ACKNOWLEDGED" display message will appear for three seconds or until the next button is pressed. This will tell you the system has been reset. Turn the ignition to "OFF". If the "CHANGE OIL SOON" message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure. on the 3.5 liter you have a dipstick near fire wall
