Good chance they did something during oil change, inadvertently or on purpose. Check your oil level first, then look for broken wires. Check your gas cap too, a loos e gas cap is most frequent reason for the light to come on. Finally, take it to an auto parts store and see if they can hook up a diagnostic checker (for free, autozone does not charge for this service.) and tell you the problem.

I had my oil changed in October after the "oil


Try this procedure and let me know if this does not work;

Turn the ignition switch to the "On" position but do not start the engine.

1. Press the Trip/Reset button until "Setup Menu Hold Reset" is displayed.

2. Then press and hold down the Trip/Reset button for approximately 2 seconds until "Reset For System Check" is displayed then release the Trip/Reset button.

3. Then immediately press and hold down the Trip/Reset button again for approximately 2 more seconds until "OIL 100% RESET IF NEW" is displayed then release the Trip/Reset button.

4. Then immediately press the Trip/Reset button once to display "HOLD RESET IF NEW OIL" then release the Trip/Reset button.

5. Then immediately press and hold the Trip/Reset button again for approximately 2 seconds until "OIL LIFE SET TO 100%" is displayed.

Turn off the ignition switch, and then start the engine to verify that the reset procedure did work, and you might have to repeat the procedure if the Trip/Reset button is not pushed fast enough, or it is not held down long enough, or it is held down too long during the reset procedure, and it may take a few attempts to be successful.

I got my oil changed about 2 1/2 weeks ago and about a week ago my car started running rough, i attributed it to maybe a tankful of bad gas. this morning the engine was knocking and i made a mental note...


I had Walmart give me an ambassador package oil change years ago on a grand am and the nimrods never tightened the filter and the same thing happened to me. Even though I put oil in the engine seized within 48 hrs. Good luck! Get your documents ready because whether or not your engine fails you will still want to sue the oil replacement service worker for subsequent damages due to negligence.

Oil light comes on and beeps


Changing oil can't hurt. When was the last time you had it changes?How many miles on that engine?Changing approximately ever 3,000 miles is common practice. The engine oil light and the automatic transmission are two seperate problems.     Engine oil light come on because the sensor reads a low oil preasure.If the engine is not worn then the light can be caused by the sensor getting cloged up (from dirty oil ) and not reading the preasure correctly.
