On a 2008, thurn the key to the ACC position. Hold down the reset button for about 10sec on the dash until the whole display starts flashing.
When the whole display is flashing, hold down the reset button again for about 10sec. the OIL LIFE will go to 100%.

Oil light on at idle only. Engin light on continually, got an oil change at Walmart before this started happening before my trip.


this is a clear indication that the oil pressure is not enough at idle , since you noticed it after an oil change , im guessing that its maybe possible the improper viscosity oil was used in your car , anyway its not good for the engine to have the improper oil type or pressure regardless of idle or full speed , as this causes premature engine failure , also note as I worked in a dealership for many years cars that came in with an oil related failure there oil/fluids were always Lab tested for a warranty repair and once or twice out of 20 or so I actually saw a warranty claim denied biased on a labs test result (meaning that the owner was responsible for the repair )

there are other reasons that the oil pressure can be lower as a engines life gets older as well , but still it is suspicious that it just showed up after the oil change , normal engine wear shows up gradually over time , not all the sudden

I had my oil changed in my 2007 Acura MDX this morning and the Honda Dealership had no idea how to reset the indicator. How do I do this?


Courtesy of oilreset.com:
Turn the ignition to (II) - do not start the engine. Press the SEL/RESET button on the steering wheel repeatedly until engine oil life is displayed. Press and hold the SEL/RESET button for more than 10 seconds. The remaining engine oil life reset mode will be shown on the multi information display. Select RESET by pressing the INFO (??²/??¼) button, then press the SEL/RESET button to reset the engine oil life display. The maintenance item code(s) will disappear, and the engine oil life will reset to 100. Turn the ignition off and then start the engine to verify the indicator has been reset. *Models equipped with the keyless access system have an engine start/stop button instead of an ignition switch. Pushing start/stop button once without starting engine is equivalent of ignition (II).
Best of luck! Greg

Hello today i leaded out my Chevy Suburban truck to my sister she returned to me with the Service Engine Soon light on ?? Im sure she ran the truck up hill ? What might the problem be it was perfect this...


She didn't do anything wrong at all. Your truck is just fine and doing what it was designed to do. That's a normal indicator that comes on to remind you to get the oil changed. It's supposed to get reset every time the oil gets changed and frequently, Quickie Lube and other instant oil change shops will overlook resetting it. Look in your owners manual under "Resetting the Service Engine indicator light" and you can reset it yourself. Or just get the oil changed and tell them to make sure and reset it.

I have a ford transit 02 plate, with no user manual. today a indicator came on displaying the oil sign with a spanner next to it. is this a service light as the normal oil light was ok and didnt light up


Sounds like a service engine soon light. Check owners manual for reset instructions. On our 99 Mercury , you had to push a combination of buttons on the trip computer / fuel economy select buton.

In the owners manual, you will find reset procedures.

Oil Change Reset
A press of the OIL CHANGE RESET switch will allow you to
reset the oil life feature to 100% (or your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage). After you have the oil changed, you must execute
the following procedure. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch
and hold for five seconds as the M/C counts down for five
seconds. After a successful reset the Message Center will display
“OIL LIFE RESET TO 100%.” If you have established a
Personalized Oil Reset Percentage, the display will show that
percentage instead of 100%. To ensure accurate oil life
indicators, perform this reset procedure only after an oil change.
Your Personalized Oil Reset Percentage allows you to establish a
smaller oil change interval than the manufacturer’s
recommended interval. To establish your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage perform the following procedure:
1. Press and hold the OIL CHANGE RESET switch and press
the RESET switch while the display is still counting down
the 5 seconds to reset. The display will change to “START
OIL LIFE AT XXX%.”
2. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch until the displayed
percentage is the Personalized Oil Reset Percentage that you
desire. Your choices are 100%, 90%, 80%, 70%, 60%, 50%,
40% and 30%.

Battery or radiator light on a 1999 BMW 318i SE


The below is taken from another site written a year ago:
What you are looking at is the Service Indicator. The green, yellow and red lights let you know when service needs to be performed. The green lights mean everything is still good. The yellow lights mean "anytime you're ready." The red lights mean do the service ASAP. There are also two other lighted areas. One says "inspection," the other says "oil change" (or oil service.) An oil change is an oil change. However, there are two inspections: Inspection 1 is normally at every other 15,000 miles; Inspections 2 is at every 30,000 miles. Your local BMW dealer should have a pamphlet listing all duties performed for each of the services. Inspection 2 can run you around $400-$800 depending on the service station/dealership's labor rates. Inspections 1 should be around 1/2 of that. You should have your oil changed about every 5000 miles. Dealership oil changes can range from $35-$65. A BMW that is well taken care of will last a long time. 

FYI, don't be surprised if the SI (service indicator) board decides to **** out one day. I'm surprised to see yours is still working (they usually die within 10 years unless someone went thru the expense to have it replaced.) If/when it does go, just gauge your services by the mileage intervals I've listed above. I'd also recommend when you stop into (or just call) the dealership, go to the parts department and order an owner's manual for your BMW. Should be less than $20 and get to you in about a week unless they have one in stock.
When the service tech has performed the necessary service(s), he will reset your SI board so that only green lights are showing.

you most likely need to take the cat to a saturn dealership to have the code reset for the oil change light. Saturn is notorious for designing their cars so that it is necessary to the dealership for repairs.
