How to Reset the Change Oil Light

After changing the engine oil, the system must be reset.

With the ignition key to ON, push the RESET button

located in the driver's side instrument panel fuse block. The

CHANGE OIL light will start to flash, press and hold the

RESET button again. The reset is complete when you hear
the chimes sound and the CHANGE OIL light goes out.

Change oil light


After you change your oil you must reset your system to start tracking your next oil change. Simply take off your fuse panel cover. There is a red button in there marked RESET. To do this simply turn your ignition switch on (not started). Then press the RESET button once. You will now see your Change Oil Light blinking. Hold down on the button until you hear it beep. Turn off your ignition switch. Now start your Alero, the light should be off.

Change oil light


I had an Olds that that happened to.  Had many friends tell me to do this and to do that.  What I should have done was bring it to be serviced.  I didn't and the motor froze up.  Its in the junk yard now.  
Go straight to the serviceman.  Do not drive it.  Have the oil pump checked. 
Hope you fare better than I did.
