    Thanks Gary! I don't have the manual for the car. The guys at O'Reilly's were no help and the Pontiac website was not accessible. I'm glad I found you!! :)

Turn the key to the on position(do not start the engine) Pump the gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. The change oil light should start flashing. Turn the key to the off position. The next time you start the vehicle, the light should go on briefly then go out.

You can just push and hold the reset button for about 3 seconds. That is how I reset mine.

Why does the Change Oil light stay on 15 seconds after starting car?


Try re-setting the oil change light and see if it quits. Should re-set itself. Not oil sending unit, that tells computer and light when there is a problem like no oil pressure.

How to reset the change oil light on 2001 chevrolet suburban LS


Turn the ignition key to on position, but do not start the vehicle.
Wait for the "change oil light" to come on
Tap the throttle pedal three times quickly
Wait for the light to flash several times, then go out.
Start the car and drive and it won't come back on.

It usually works the first time, but repeat if light stays on.

You need to put the key on and push the gas pedal to the floor three times within five second to reset the oil life light.Some g.m.'s have a reset buttom in the fuse panel that needs to be pushed first and some don't.Check the owners manual under change oil for your specific year car.

The engine light always come on after an oil


Does it come on just when you first start it up after the oil change. Does it stay on for Miles? If it comes on just for a few mint.s right after the change, it has to do with the oil press safety. You install a new filter and as the engine starts it will have to refill the oil filter with oil, plus refill all the oil ports in the block to finely build press to shut off the press safety switch, which will the turn off the light.

The oil pan has a sensor in it that need to be replaced. It screws in and you may lose some oil.

Did you also change the filter as well as the oil, and have the system flushed?

If not, do so.
