Using the black push button/rod, you know the one where you can switch to see trip A trip B etc?
keep pushing it til you get to the check engine part then it will cycle through several things. when you find the right place it will read "if new oil hold reset" at this point just hold reset. That is the black push button/rod.

If this don't work, try it again, sometimes it may miss...

How to Reset the Change Engine Oil Message
The Aztek uses the GM Oil Life System to calculate when to change your engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. It is widely thought to determine oil life by counting engine revolutions.
There is much debate about the merits of such a system as a basis for determining when to change engine oil, the system should be reset after each oil change to ensure that the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message does not appear inappropriately.
There are two procedures for resetting the system, one for Aztek's with a DIC (Driver Information Center) and one for Aztek's without a DIC.
PROCEDURE 1: Aztek's with a DIC
1. Turn the ignition to ON with the engine off.
2. Press the MODE button until the DIC reads "OIL LIFE LEFT/HOLD SET TO RESET"
3. Press and hold the SET button until 100% is displayed.
You will hear three chimes and the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message (if illuminated) will go off. Repeat this procedure if the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message comes back on.
PROCEDURE 2: Aztek's without a DIC
1. Turn the ignition to ON with the engine off.
2. Fully push and release the accelerator pedal slowly three times within five seconds.
3. Turn the key to OFF.
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message continues to be illuminated, repeat the procedure.

The check engine light is on everything is ok on


In most later vehicles, that light may stay on for a fixed number (it can be 5-50, we have both) of startups of the engine or many have to be manually reset. The engine can't tell the computer that it has fresh oil but will turn the light on after some finite mileage since the last reset for periodic maintenance items such as your oil change, but some items can't reasonably reset the computer; it has to be told that the oil was changed.
Check your manual to find how to reset that warning light and if you no longer have the manual for your vehicle, you can download a copy of it from the Ford website.

Where is oil light reset button? Light stays on regardless of condition of oil.


  1. Turn the ignition to "ON", with the engine off.
  2. Slowly fully press and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. The reset is complete when the chimes sound and the "CHANGE OIL" lamp goes out. If the lamp stays on and no chime is heard, repeat the reset procedure.
  3. Turn the key to "OFF".
  4. If the "CHANGE OIL" lamp comes back on when the vehicle is started, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

1999 Pontiac Grand Prix lights are staying on


what is the procedure you are using can you explain it to me?
Resetting Procedure

To reset the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator if equipped with the Driver Information Center (DIC).

  1. Turn the ignition to ON without starting the engine.
  2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds.
    • If the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator flashes two times, the system is resetting. Turn the ignition key to OFF then start the vehicle.
    • If the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator comes on and stays on, repeat the procedure.
To reset the OIL LIFE indicator if equipped with a Trip Computer.

  1. Press the trip MODE button until the light appears next to OIL LIFE.
  2. Press and hold the trip RESET button until the oil life percentage changes to 100%.
Hope this helps Ill look into the ABS lights but I do believe that you will need a scan tool to retreive a code to be able to diagnose the reason for the lights
