Turn the ignition to ON. Press the GAGE INFO button on the driver information center (DIG) switch to view OIL LIFE INDEX. Press and hold the RESET button on the DIG until the display reads OIL LIFE INDEX 100% NORMAL. The engine oil life monitor is now reset.. Turn the ignition OFF.

Best of luck.

U CAN DISCONNECT THE BATTERY NEGATIVE CABLE FOR 5 MINUTES TO RESET THE LIGHT BUT IT WILL COME BACK ON IN A FEW DAYS IF THE PROBLEM THAT TURNED IT ON IN THE 1ST PLACE IS NOT FIXED.

SOURCE: service engine soon light

Check and make sure your gas cap is on properly first.
Have you noticed any differences in the way your car is
running? Most of the check engine light complaints from
our customers at the dealership turns out to be an improperly
installed gas cap. You might have to take a number of
trips to and from the store before you check engine light will
go off, if it was the gas cap or you can have a service dept.
turn it off for you.

Engine management light on car runs fine


Service engine soon or check engine light? Engine light needs scanned for codes. Service engine soon is for oil changes and such. To get rid of service lights, turn the key on, press the gas pedal three times within five seconds. The light will flash. turn the key off. it's reset. At least check or change the oil and filter though.

Service engine soon light


The service engine soon could be an indicator that you need to have minor maintenance done in the near future. I had a Grand Am that the service engine light would turn on when I was getting close to needing an oil change. You might check your owners manual for an exact reason as to why it turns on.

  1. Turn the key to ACC.
  2. Press the gas pedal down all the was three times in fairly rapid succession.
  3. The service engine soon light will begin to blink and then disappear.
  4. Turn the key to off.
  5. now start your truck.
  6. The light will now be off.
  • This should be done after every oil change.
  • All the light means is that the PCM has indicated that you have driven the required miles for an oil change. A reminder light if you will.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
