Most newer chevys if you turn the key to the run posission and then push the gas pedal to the floor and let it come back up 3 times the change oil light should flash and then go out. After you do this it should be reset.

How do i reset / remove the "change oil" message thats showing up on my Navg screen. The oil and the filter were changed 3 days ago....pls help

you can reset your oil change light by pressing the "maintenance" button below the "navigation screen" and make sure that you are not driving becasue it will not let you reset it. And once at the "oil change" screen, just hold the "trip reset" button for a few seconds and YOU'RE GOOD TO GO! and you can also change the miles in between the "check oil light," once at the screen just use the "left/right" buttons and make it go anywehre from 3000-10,000 i believe, but it may go less or more. hope this helped!
These instructions can also be found in your owners manual if needed again.
If this was helpful please give it a thumbs up to help others.

Ok you cant change the oil level, you need to reset the oil change light, right???. Scroll until it reads OIL LIFE , now find the button that looks like a backwards "L" with an arrow on the lower leg, now hold that button in until the oil life resets. Oil life is based on the correct oil used, be sure it meets GM 6094 Spec. If its not synthetic, its not good enough.

I have a pontiac g6 and my change oil light has been on. i went and got a oil change and nothing happened and i cant see where to put the tRANSNISSION FLUID??

With the "CHANGE OIL SOON" message displayed, press any of the three DIC buttons to clear the "CHANGE OIL SOON" message. Display "OIL LIFE RESET" on the DIC. Press and hold the "ENTER" button for at least one second. An "ACKNOWLEDGED" display message will appear for three seconds or until the next button is pressed. This will tell you the system has been reset. Turn the ignition to "OFF". If the "CHANGE OIL SOON" message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure. on the 3.5 liter you have a dipstick near fire wall
