A diagnostic scanner that reads OBD1 (the system by which your vehicle processes trouble codes) will be required, many parts stores do this a s a free service. Check with them to see if they charge. Remember though, when they read the car and turn the light off that in order for the light to stay off, the problem must be fixed. Even if it was a one time fluke of a problem, get the code that their scanner gives them so that you know what the issue is.

Oldsmobile Bravada, Silhouette wI(DIC) Driver Information Center
With the ignition key in RUN but the engine off, repeatedly push the trip/reset button until “OIL” is displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIC). Once “OIL” is displayed, push and hold the trip/reset button for five seconds. The number will appear and be replaced by 100 (indicating 100% oil life remaining). Turn the key to OFF. If the “CHANGE ENGINE OIL” message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

You should have the codes read and then address the reason for the codes. If you want to just reset, any ODB-II tool will do it...until it triggers again.

2001 Olds Alero -- The service Engine Soon light is on. Car has 22K miles. Any Ideas on the most logical problem? Is there a reset so that I can check if it is just a fluke. Vern Dale


Hi Vern,
Get behind the fuse box on the side (L) door; remove the cover, turn the key on, but don't turn on engine.
Push red button and hold for a couple of seconds, and you'll hear a "beep". When it beeps 3 times, push the button in and it'll reset.
I have a 2001 Olds (Alero), and have done thiis a few times.
Do you have an Owner's Manuel? That's how we fig. out...

Good luck!
