First turn key on, bring oil life percentage up on screen. Turn key off and then on again and push gas pedal down three times within five seconds, your monitor should reset within ten to fifteen seconds. You don't have to bring the oil life up on the screen, but that way you can wait and watch it change.

SOURCE: just had an oil change. how do I reset the oil

1. Turn Ignition to Run, with engine OFF
2. Press info and reset buttons at same time to get to personalization menu
3. After that; press info button to scroll through menu until you see OIL LIFE RESET
4. Press and Hold reset button until shows ACKNOWLEDGED

There is apparently another way also, where you turn on the ignition without starting, and pump the gas pedal three times with 7 sec or something like that.

My pontiac g6 2007 says the oil is at 20% what does this mean


That is your Oil Life indicator. That means that is is almost time for an oil change. If your oil has recently been changed, then it was not reset when the oil was changed.

This information is covered in the Owner's Manual for your vehicle on page 211.

How to Turn off Service Traction Control and ESC messages


I had this problem with my 2007 HHR. I drove away with the service engine and the service traction light on. The car was stuttering through the gears. I took it back and they checked it. They disconnect some wires while they change the oil and one was loose. The service engine turned off but the service traction stayed on. We disconnected the battery for 3 minutes and it fixed the problem. Some of those other guys spent up to 300 dollars to fix the problem. Hope it works out for you.

Reset oil life display after oil change?


THIS SHOULD BE IT.
How do I reset the Engine Oil life monitor and how does it work? TO reset To reset the Engine Oil Life monitor do the following:
Reset Oil life in NAV/DIC by (with car running) going to INFO>Oil Life>RESET
Press and HOLD until XXX turns to 100%
How does it work? The oil life monitor is a pretty sophisticated algorithm.

GM "The GM Oil Life System will automatically adjust the oil change interval based on engine characteristics, driving habits and the climate in which the vehicle is operated."
