It simply means that the service indicator was not reset when the oil was changed. If the oil was changed professionally, then resetting the service indicator is usually part of the job.

It's not just a reminder to change the oil, it's also there to remind you to check/adjust/lubricate/replace other items such as the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, dampers (UK=shock absorbers) etc.

The service indicator is simply a dumb counter keyed to mileage and time elapsed and cannot sense when you have completed a service. Resetting the indicator requires a special tool so you'll need to take your car to a suitably equipped garage.

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.

I have a 2000 olds alero, how do i reset the change moil light


If you mean the change oil soon light............ Open the fuse panel; on the side of the dash by drivers door. turn on key but not far enough to start car.
Press the red reset button in the fuse panel until the oil light flashes , release the button and then press it again.
It has been a while since I have done this on an alero , so if you have your owners manual , it might be a good idea to read the instructions in there incase i have it wrong. By the way , the low tire pressure light works the same way.

Warning lights


Feel safe about your trip as this a only warning lights that some issues are at hand concerning your car, it does not mean you can not travel 1000miles.

Just take your car for a scan and it will all be corrected.
