Check Oil light stays on even after the oil has been changed

I went for an oil change when the oil change light came on. I got the car back and the light was still on. I asked the oil changing place to reset it and they said they did but it was still on. Later I had the problem with another vehicle and the tech looked up a way to shut off the light by holding down some buttons when the engine switch was turned. So I was hoping some one coud tell me how do you reset the light on my 98 Olds Intrigue?

Well, it is in the manual under engine oil. turn key to on, dont start. press gas pedel to the floor "slowly" 3 times within 5 seconds. if the change oil light flashes, its resetting. If not, repeat.. this worked for me.

Turn key to "On" but do not start the engine. Depress the gas pedal to the floor and back 3 times within 5 seconds. Turn key off. When you restart the car the oil change light should go out. If it doesn't then it needs to be dealer serviced.

Call a local oil change shop and ask. I asked some guys once and I think it involved putting the car in neutral with the key turn over but the engine off and tapping the brakes 3 or 4 times.

If you happen to have the owner's manual with the car, there is a step by step instructions on how to re-set the oil change light. I know this is much to go on but I'm positive that the sequence is in the manual.

Why does the Change Oil light stay on 15 seconds after starting car?


Try re-setting the oil change light and see if it quits. Should re-set itself. Not oil sending unit, that tells computer and light when there is a problem like no oil pressure.

Oil pressure light stays on even though the oil level is fine


That could be from not having any oil pressure "oil pump failure, clogged filter, etc" or from a faulty oil pressure sending unit. More tests would need to be performed but is it really an oil pressure light or is it the change oil light. More info would be needed

Oil light is still on.


The RX 8 engine burns oil pretty bad. Majority of time the oil light coming on is due to the oil level being just a little low. When the engine is cold check the oil level if its full then is another issue but if a little low just add a little oil at a time till full then light should stay off.

2004 Kia Optima Oil light blinking. Doesthat mean I need to change my oil pump or oil filter with oil change?


A flashing oil light usally means low oil pressure. If the oil pressure drops below a set point the light will contiune to flash even if the pressure rises back up to normal until you resart the car. Start simple and check the oil. If low then add. Keep an eye on it, if your losing it, its going somewhere, exhaust, or out a seal or if you went to jiffy lube, probably out of the oil filter due to it not being tightened. If oil is ok, your oil pump may be bad. That job is a little complex.

Check oil light stays on even after a full oil change


The oil pan has a sensor in it that need to be replaced. It screws in and you may lose some oil.

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON


this has nothing to do with the oil, it does indicate that a problem has occurred in the electronic engine controls, have the system tested, there will be a trouble code stored for the event.
