Will not reset it's self you need to reset your ECM on your car's computer. Do this by Turniing your ign. key to on position then turn on a/c then disconnect your positive battery terminal. wait 30 sec then turn key off and replace battery cable. Good luck to ya. PS, If something else is a problem this will put the code back to your ecm and will come back on. But this should fix your problem.

The oil change place should've done it for you. It takes an OBII scanner to reset it. Any good parts store can reset it for you - FREE (Autozone, Advance, etc..)

Engine management light on car runs fine


Service engine soon or check engine light? Engine light needs scanned for codes. Service engine soon is for oil changes and such. To get rid of service lights, turn the key on, press the gas pedal three times within five seconds. The light will flash. turn the key off. it's reset. At least check or change the oil and filter though.

How do i reset the service engine light soon? It stays on after i have changed the oil and filter and reset the oil life sensor to 100%.


The service engine soon light indicates a problem.
Take the vehicle to AutoZone and have them read the computer code.
They can give you an idea of what the problem is and reset the light for you.
BTW the service is free

Service engine soon light stays on and just had the oil changed, along with oil filter, fuel filter and air filter. Car was running rough prior to this now its missing bad and died while it was in park...


If the car was built 1996 and after, you can get the codes scanned at Auto Zone for free (unless you live in CA) and they will give you a print out of the codes. Without knowing more about the car (you didn't put in any year or engine info, or symptoms) I can't tell you what could be wrong with it.

My change oil light never goes off even though I had it changed and now my service vehicle soon light is on even though its been running fine


The change oil light needs to be reset after each oil change...some shops are not knowledgeable on how to do this...Your owners manual will instruct you how to reset the oil change light...The service engine soon is a catch all for low fluids and other needs...Be sure to check your oil level again...to clear the service engine soon light, you can disconnect either battery cable for 15 minutes then reconnect...if the service engine stays on...then you need to have your Grand Am checked...Auto Zone does a free diagnostic of check engine light codes...:)

How it reset service engine light


Is it the "oil change req." light? Your owners manual will have the process for reseting the oil change light.
If it is "service engine soon" light, the vehicle will need to be scanned with a professional scanner.
