    This is helpful however, my fuse panel does not have an obvious reset button. Any more suggestions?

    2004 Bonneville SE-changed oil and can't locate reset. Manual states reset on DIC. My car doesn't have DIC. OnStar keeps reading no oil--danger level.

    I changed my oil, oil filter and air filter, due to the "change oil" light comming on, plus it needed to be changed. Now my "change oil light" will not turn off. I'll try the recomendations that I've read.

Hi lady d tilli,

Take off the fuse cover on the drivers side of the dash. there should be a bunch of fuses. in the middle is a red button that says "reset." turn your key to the on position, but DO NOT START. press the reset button until the change oil light blinks, then turn the key back off it should be fine after that. for the 05's theres somthing you have to do with the gas pedal. i think you do the same, by turning the key on but not starting...and then tapping the gas pedal 3 times.

Hope this helps a bit,
Good luck,
Eitan.

Turn key to on position (do not start car) - tap gas pedal 3 times fast - wait about 3-5 seconds the light goes off. It works for our 2004 Grand Am.

Pushing the reset button inside the fuse panel with the key on "on"/ car not running will clear this.
I found that it will work ONLY when it's NOT damp or foggy outside.
Wait till the sun comes out. When it works, "change oil" light will shut off and your computer in the car will make a noise that it has accepted the reset. It's a pretty cool sound! LOL.

Even the 04 model you still have to press the gas pedal down 3 times while holding the reset button, release the button and press it in one more time. then the chimes will go off

Posted on Aug 11, 2008

To get the change oil light to turn off. You turn the key into the start position, without turning the engine on. Then Tap the accelerator 3 times, fully to the ground. You must push the accelerator down 3 times within 5 secs. After you do so, the change oil light should blink, maybe be followed by some beeps from your car, and the light should then be off from now on.

It's in your owners manual.you have to turn your key over but don't start your engine.you have to press your gas pedal down 3 or 4 times till you hear the chimes go out. if it doesn't work you have to keep repeating. i had the same prob on mine. i found you had tp press the pedal down fairly fast to get it.

How do u reset oil light after changing oil


Hello Jw.
  1. Turn the ignition to ON, with the engine off.
  2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal slowly three times within five seconds. The reset is complete when you hear the chimes and the CHANGE OIL light goes out. However, if the light stays on and no chime is heard, you will need to repeat the reset procedure.
  3. Turn the key to OFF. If the CHANGE OIL light comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
There you are, thank you for using FixYa.
