The change oil light came on. on my friends 2002 monte carlo ss so i gave it an oil change and a new filter . the light won't go off.


The "Oil Change Reminder Light" has to be reset.

To reset the oil change reminder light with the accelerator pedal, turn the ignition switch to the ON position. Do not start engine. After turning the ignition ON, depress the accelerator pedal fully to the floor and let it up again 3 times within 5 seconds. The oil change reminder light should flash a few times to let you know that it is resetting. If it does not flash, turn the switch OFF and repeat the procedure. After it flashes, turn the ignition switch OFF. Then start the engine. The light should come on for a bulb check then go out and stay out.

NEED TO RESET OIL CHANGE LIGHT


How to Reset the Engine Oil Life System
The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change the engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Whenever the oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where the oil is changed prior to a CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message being turned on, reset the system.
Always reset the engine oil life to 100% after every oil change. It will not reset itself. To reset the Engine Oil Life System:
Display the OIL LIFE REMAINING on the DIC.
Press and hold the SET/RESET button on the DIC for more than five seconds. The oil life will change to 100%.
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message comes back on when the vehicle is started, the Engine Oil Life System has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

Just had oil change done on my 2000 alero now my service engine soon light is on.I want to know what this means


It simply means that the service indicator was not reset when the oil was changed. If the oil was changed professionally, then resetting the service indicator is usually part of the job.

It's not just a reminder to change the oil, it's also there to remind you to check/adjust/lubricate/replace other items such as the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, dampers (UK=shock absorbers) etc.

The service indicator is simply a dumb counter keyed to mileage and time elapsed and cannot sense when you have completed a service. Resetting the indicator requires a special tool so you'll need to take your car to a suitably equipped garage.

Engine light is on oil level is good


Do you mean the Check-Engine light? If so, have the car scanned for codes and post them here and we can take it further. If it's the oil light that is on, you may have a faulty sender. If it's the Service Oil Soon reminder on the info display, that's a reminder to change your oil (which you should be able to reset with the instrument cluster stalks) - that doesn't monitor the oil, but it's a timed interval reminder based on miles driven. The idea is to reset it each time the oil is changed, so that when it comes back, you know to change the oil.
