Read your owners manual. Turn engine off, then turn key to ON position. Depress brake three times slowly within five seconds and then turn key OFF. Then turn key ON. The oil change light should be reset. Who knows. The "GM" was made in Korea. Lots of luck. Now, if I could just figue out how to turn off the "blinking hold light". What a mess.

Hi there, I have a Peugeot 207 1.6xs manual gearbox 2008 model and I recently replaiced the oil pump and filter and as I was driving back home from Peugeot pinetown, the vehicle displayed a fault which...

Worn main and rod bearings on the crank shaft. This is what creates the oil pressure. When the get worn they start loosing pressure. Also when the oil gets hot, it gets thinner, causing more lose of pressure.

How do I turn the check oil light off.

You'll need to check the oil first.. maybe its too low.. Otherwise, its a mechanical failure of the oil sensor.

OIL SENSOR LIGHT ON 2001 Audi 2.8liter

It could simply be maybe the person changing your oil never reset the light? or you have a oil pressure sensor leaking or not working.
most of the time its someone never reset the oil change light. even before it goes on it goes by mileage, so maybe it didnt go off yet cause you cnahged it a tad noone even tried to reset it.

I guess you could have an oil pressure problem, but thats going the extreme route.. but if nothing else shows that could be a problem.

Resetting the oil change monitor in the information centre after an oil change

With the van on, (it does not have to be running.) press the maint button untill the oil miles is showing. Hold down the maint button untill it resets. You can also press the joystick over left or right to set the amount of miles between oil change. Trip reset should do the same as well for the oil and tires.

Sounds like you have a gremlin running around under the hood, just kidding. The check engine light was probably caused by a failing sensor, or it could have been a loss of oil pressure due to the old oil. If the problem never returns then I think it is safe to say it was a loss of oil pressure, but if it is a failing sensor this will occur again. When and if it does happen again do not reset the computer, take the car to an autozone(they diagnose check engine lights for free) if you have one around you. The diagnostic will tell you exactly what sensor has caused this, but if you reset the computer ther is nothing to diagnose. And a dealer or shop can charge 60-90 dollars for the diagnsis. Based on my expirence if it is a sensor it is probably the MAP(Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor) this sensor is probably the only one that will completly shut down the car, most other sensors will fail and your check engine light comes on but the car stays running.

Hope this helps
