I believe you can turn this reminder light off easily. With the engine off turn the key to the "RUN" position, do not start, while in the run position fully depress the gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds.

I believe this will do it for you.

I hope this may have assited you,
Tom

seems like your oil pressure switch gave up, its located on the side of the oil filter, you can take it out and test with a amp meter. it should cost you less than 20 bucks to buy something like that.

My 1999 gram am engine light ison and chage oil light and traction off light is on and it is shacking and losing compression wont go to fast


The change oil light is its own issue. Not connected with the other lights. The traction light could be on because the engine is not running right. So the traction control is disabled.
You need to get the engine computer scanned for trouble codes to find out why the engine is running rough. Remember codes are only a guide for checking and testing, not a direct command to replace parts.

How do u clear the code of change oil light on a 1999 grand am


on the drivers side end of the dash there is a removable panel that sometimes says fuses on it. You will need to have the door open to remove it. Once it is off you will see a red reset button. Turn the key on. push the reset button one time, the change oil light should start to blink. if not press it again. Once the change oil light is blinking press and hold the reset button for about 10 seconds. an audible tone will beep three or four times and the light will go out.

turn the key to "on" and open the fuse panel to the left of the steering wheel when drivers door is open, hold the "reset" button until the oil light on the dash starts to blink and then push it again, you should hear the chimes and then the light will go off. :-)

Check tire pressure light reset, 1999 Grand AM


Pop the fuse panel cover off the driver side fuse box, you have to open the door to get to it. With the key in the ignition and in the "ON" position, hold down the button in the fuse box that says "reset". The Tire Pressure or Oil Change light will start to blink, let go and push it one more time and the light will go off.

1999 Pontiac Grand Prix lights are staying on


what is the procedure you are using can you explain it to me?
Resetting Procedure

To reset the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator if equipped with the Driver Information Center (DIC).

  1. Turn the ignition to ON without starting the engine.
  2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds.
    • If the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator flashes two times, the system is resetting. Turn the ignition key to OFF then start the vehicle.
    • If the CHANGE OIL SOON indicator comes on and stays on, repeat the procedure.
To reset the OIL LIFE indicator if equipped with a Trip Computer.

  1. Press the trip MODE button until the light appears next to OIL LIFE.
  2. Press and hold the trip RESET button until the oil life percentage changes to 100%.
Hope this helps Ill look into the ABS lights but I do believe that you will need a scan tool to retreive a code to be able to diagnose the reason for the lights
