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.

SOURCE: 99 Lumina - had an oil change. change oil soon

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.

Sometimes they just fail to reset properly. Nothing to worry about. The youtube video shows the procedure to reset for a Chevy Truck, should be the same for your Chevy car.

I need to know how to fix the oil change light after a oil change on 2009 mercury grand marque. The panel on the car always says ''change oil soon'' but the oil has already been changed.


Hi!!

The person that changed the oil should have resetted the light.

Just drive to an AutoZone store, ask for somebody to check your vehicle computer codes, once they check them up, ask them to reset the change oil soon light, they would do this at no charge. This is a free service they offered to all their customers.

Don't forget to rate this post. Good luck!!
