Change engine oil light is on i tried turning key to acc pump gas three times turned key off but light still comes back on

that light is a maintenance reminder light. Check with who ever changes your oil, and have them reset it.

Usually the turn key/pump 3 times works for the check engine light. Smart to try that though.

How do I reset the maintenance reminder message?

the answer is often make/model dependent...

on my 2004 pontiac i can turn the key to the on position and press the gas pedel 3 times quickly which results in clearing the change oil message and supposedly kind of resets the computer.

you can try that or post make/model/year info

Change Oil light stays on after oil change.

Turn the key to the on position(do not start the engine) Pump the gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. The change oil light should start flashing. Turn the key to the off position. The next time you start the vehicle, the light should go on briefly then go out.

Can u reset oil,tire,ect...without original radio on a 2001impala

You should be able to reset the oil life light.
TRY this...
put the key in and turn to the accessory point,do not start the car.
Once you get to "acc" on the ignition press down 3 times on the gas pedal but NOT fast,sort of slowly.
Turn it off then start the car,it should reset and the light goes off if not..repeat it.
Always works for me.
I hate the reminder set up,stupid if ya ask me,i know when to change oil etc.
