    I have the 2004 Silverado 2500 Duramax and have the same problem and the owner manual instruction for reset (turn ignition to run and press accelerator 3 times in 5 seconds) will not work now at all no matter how many times I try. What to do?

What package do you have? If you have buttons on the steering wheel you can manually reset it by selecting the oil change reminder then holding down the enter button

Talking about the "Change Oil" notification when you first turn on the key? You need to reset the indicator, by (guessing from memory, check your owners manual) turning on key, and pressing the brake 4 times in 5 seconds.
Hope this helps.

    Oooops, I checked my owners manual... the proper procedure is:

    Turn on key

    Press accelerator 3 times fully in 5 seconds



    The "Change Oil" graphic should now say Oil monitor Reset.

Why would my service engine soon light be on


  • Hi, I can help.
  • The service Engine Light Soon light means it's time for an oil change,

  • You can turn this light off real quick by following these steps.
  1. Turn the key to ACC.
  2. Press the gas pedal down all the was three times in fairly rapid succession.
  3. The service engine soon light will begin to blink and then disappear.
  4. Turn the key to off.
  5. now start your truck.
  6. The light will now be off.
  • This should be done after every oil change.
  • All the light means is that the PCM has indicated that you have driven the required miles for an oil change. A reminder light if you will.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

How do you turn off the check eng.light after the oil change on 2004 Linclon town car


You cannot turn off the check engine light by changing the oil. Now if you are talking about your oil change reminder, this is covered in your Owner's Manual. the check engine light coming on means that one or more of the sytems monitored by your onboard computer system has failed. You must scan your computer system and repair whatever it is that has failed and caused the computer to turn the light on.

Why my oil light turns on every time i make a sto and the oil is fine?


Hello marco.... To reset the oil light do this. Turn on the key but do not start the engine. Pump the gas pedal hard three times in succession. Then turn the key fully on and start the engine. This will reset the oil light. It will come back on in about 3,000 miles as a reminder to change the oil. Joe

Thanks for choosing FIxya!

NEED TO RESET OIL CHANGE LIGHT


How to Reset the Engine Oil Life System
The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change the engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Whenever the oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where the oil is changed prior to a CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message being turned on, reset the system.
Always reset the engine oil life to 100% after every oil change. It will not reset itself. To reset the Engine Oil Life System:
Display the OIL LIFE REMAINING on the DIC.
Press and hold the SET/RESET button on the DIC for more than five seconds. The oil life will change to 100%.
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message comes back on when the vehicle is started, the Engine Oil Life System has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

Nissan recommends changing the oil every 3750 miles. The computer is reminding you that you have driven 3860 miles without yet changing the oil.

I changed the oil and do not know how to delete the message, is ''change engine oil'' in the display panel. what can I do?


Chevrolet Suburban/GMC Yukon XL, 2000-05 Chevrolet GMC Trucks Silverado, Sierra, 1999-05 Chevrolet Venture 2000
Turn the ignition key to the RUN position. Fully push and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. If the CHANGE OIL SOON light flashes 2 times, the system is reset. However if the light comes on and stays on for 5 seconds, the system did not reset. Repeat the procedure if the system does not reset.

Good luck and please rate. Keep me posted, and thank you for using fixya.

My change oil light came on 2 months ago now my check engine light came on today.is it because I have not changed the oil yet?


Why havent you changed the oil?? going past that recommendation is not helping the engine, plus you need to use only a GM approved oil, usually synthetic. The CK Eng light has nothing to do with oil.

Clicking or tappting upon starting


Should be using 10w30 or 10w40. You probably have a lifter knocking. Instead of using 5 quarts of oil replace one of the quarts with an oil additive. I use a quart of Lucas Oil in my vehicles every oil change. The stuff works wonders!
