Check engine light solid


Most of the newer vehicles have a senser that will turn the check engine light on, even when it's time to change the oil. After they change it, they reset the check engine light to turn it off. It could be something as simple as that or even an air filter needing to be changed. The dealer can tell you how to reset that light to turn it off. Good luck!

Oil Light is on need to Reset it. Don't have manaual.


Do you mean the "Oil" light or the "Oil Life System" light?
.
If the oil light is on, you need to stop operating the engine and have it checked to find out why the light is telling you that there is no oil pressure.

If you mean the Oil Life light, Then here are the instructions:

How to Reset the CHANGE ENGINE OIL Message

1. With the ignition key in RUN but the engine off,

fully push and release the accelerator pedal slowly

three times within five seconds.

2. Turn the key to OFF.

If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message comes

back on, the engine oil life monitor has not reset.
Repeat the procedure.

How to do I reset the maintenance service light on my 2007 Chevy Trail Blazer


there is no light for emissions testing on this vehicle. there is a ses light that can come on, indicationg a problem with the engine or transmission electronic system. this will require a scan tool to pull trouble codes. there is another light called oil life monitoring that needs to be reset after oil changes, which I suspect is what you are seeing. here is a picture of the light and the instructions for resetting.,

The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change your engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Anytime your oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where you change your oil prior to a CHANGE OIL SOON message being turned on, reset the system.
After changing the engine oil, the system must be reset as follows:
  1. Turn the ignition to RUN, with the engine OFF.
  2. Press the information and reset buttons on the Driver Information Center (DIC) at the same time to enter the personalization menu.
  3. Press the information button to scroll through the available personalization menu modes until the DIC display shows OIL LIFE RESET.
  4. Press and hold the reset button until the DIC display shows ACKNOWLEDGED. This will tell you the system has been reset.
  5. Turn the key to LOCK.
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message comes back on when you start the vehicle, the Engine Oil Life System has not reset. Repeat the reset procedure.

The check engine light is on everything is ok on


In most later vehicles, that light may stay on for a fixed number (it can be 5-50, we have both) of startups of the engine or many have to be manually reset. The engine can't tell the computer that it has fresh oil but will turn the light on after some finite mileage since the last reset for periodic maintenance items such as your oil change, but some items can't reasonably reset the computer; it has to be told that the oil was changed.
Check your manual to find how to reset that warning light and if you no longer have the manual for your vehicle, you can download a copy of it from the Ford website.

How to turn off oil light after oil change


I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I very seriously doubt simply changing the oil will solve your problem. Your oil light is signifying a potential problem which your vehicle is trying to tell you about. I would check into the oil sending unit, oil pump, or if equipped possibly even the oil temperature sending unit.

Oil maintenece light is on. Oil level is good. Could a clogged filter make this light go on?


This should only be indicating time for an oil change. Now, if the red, check engine light comes on, then you have an oil/engine problem.

Possibly the maintenance light wasn't reset when the last change was done. If you don't have the owners manual to check, I found a referenced method (below) to reset it through AMSOIL synthetic oil products. Good Luck

To reset Engine Oil light. Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine off. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds. If the Change Engine Oil light is flashing, the system is reset. The light will flash for up to 30 seconds or until the ignition is turned off. If the light comes on again and stays on for 30 seconds at the next ignition cycle, it did not reset. You will need to reset the system again.

I DID THE OIL CHANGE AND NOW THE ENGINE LIGHT IS ON SAYING I NEED TO CHANGE ENGINE OIL NEED TO RESET


With the key on but the engine off press the ODO/tripA/TripB reset stick several times until the message center says press reset to enter system check. Press reset stick twice and oil life will be displayed. Press it again and it will tell you to hold it if you want to reset oil life. When it shows 100% turn the key off and you're finished.

If you have the 3 button system you're going to press the set up buttons until you see oil life and then press the reset button.
