The Change Oil (not oil light) in my 2002 Camaro came on less than 10 miles after it left the shop for new brakes, and less than 300 miles since its last oil change. What would cause the change oil light...


If you changed your oil just less than three miles ago, you just need to reset the computer. In this vehicle it may be the same as other chevys. what you will need to do is turn the key to the run position. Depress on the gas pedal three times and turn off the key. this should reset the computer. good Luck

Have a 2007 Santa Fe - Just took it in for an oil change last week. Now the oil warning light is on but the dip stick reads full. Has also starting making a squealing noise


Sometimes the dealership will forget to reset the oil light after changing the oil. It is there to remind you when it is time to get it changed. If you call them and let them know that they forgot to do it, they will probably just walk you through it. Also, check to make sure the put the oil cap back on ticht. It is not the dipstick, but the larger cap on the top of the engine that reads "oil".

The oil light is blinking on a 98 honda accord and the oil is black when i check it....what does this mean?


Black oil needs to be changed immediately. It's possible that even if the oil level is full, it's so thin and worn that it's tripping your Oil Light due to lack of oil pressure.

There is an info button. Press that button repeatedly until you get to maintenence. Once there, use the directional knob and toggle down to oil and press ok, from there it should either give you a reset tab to highlight and press ok, or highlight the mileage bar and toggle left until it is back at 0. If you have any trouble let me know and I will walk you through it.

Press and hold the SELECT/RESET
control switch to select SYSTEM
CHECK when “SYSTEM CHECK /
HOLD RESET” is displayed in the
message center. Selecting this
function from the SETUP MENU
causes the message center to cycle through each of the systems being
monitored. For each of the monitored systems, the message center will
indicate either an OK message or a warning message for two seconds.
Pressing the SELECT/RESET control switch cycles the message center
through each of the systems being monitored.

The sequence of the system check report and how it appears in the
message center is as follows:
1. OIL LIFE RESET
2. CHARGING SYSTEM
3. WASHER FLUID
4. DOOR AJAR
5. EXTERIOR LAMP
6. BRAKE SYSTEM
7. PARK BRAKE
8. MILES TO EMPTY
9. FUEL LEVEL LOW (will only display if 50 miles or less to empty)
To reset the oil monitoring system to 100% after each oil change
[approximately 5,000 miles (8,000 km) or 180 days] perform the
following:
1. Enter SYSTEM CHECK to display
“OIL XXX% RESET IF NEW”.
2. Press SELECT/RESET control
switch to display “HOLD RESET IF
NEW OIL”.
3. Press and hold the
SELECT/RESET control switch for
more than 2 seconds. Oil life is set
to 100% and “OIL CHANGE SET TO
100%” is displayed.
