The CPU has read low oil pressure and has shut down the system to protect the engine which it has done. However it cannot tell when you add oil so to get it to change you will have to reset the CPU.. Possible removing the battery lead for 5-10 minutes will reset or have a code reader instrument reset it.
If the engine is not making any noise then it is likely not a real oil pressure problem. Just to make sure have the pressure checked by a shop with a mechanical test gauge and if found to be inspect replace the sending unit and that should in most cases cure the problem. I assume this is a pressure indicator.
This may mean engine wear or bad oil pump. I would have the oil pressure tested to see if its a shot some where or if the pressure is really low, this is done by removing the sensor and installing a gauge and driving the car to see if the pressure is low, if the pressure is low then more checking is neede to see why,you may have worn engine bearings or bad oil pump. depending on the mileage it may be smarter to replace the engine, not knowing what internal damage has been done already. good day.
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...:)
You have to reset the check engine oil level light. The light is just a 3 month reminder that lets you know when to change your oil. You have to hold the reset button on your dash for more then 5 to 10 sec. The procedure is in the owners manual that came with the car.
The check engine light and the oil change indicator message are more than likely not related. You can toggle through the functions and get the oil life % to display then push the reset and hold it for a few seconds and it will reset the oil life indicator message. It should read oil life 100% after reset. (I would change the oil and filter if you have not already done so.)
The check engine light means you are setting an engine code, if it stays on, it is a hard code, if it is intermittant it is a soft code. Have it checked with a scan tool -- plug into your a.l.d.l. connector below the dash on the drivers side and read the code. Autozone and other places will do this for free.
low oil would normally set off an individual warning.. either way when You topped off the oil it would automatically reset the light.. the check engine light comes on when an electrical component sends a signal, the best thing is to take your car to a qualified mechanic so he can use his scan tool to get the code from your car. It could be most anything from an O2 sensor (the typical first engine check light) to your cars computer..
hi did they reset the light when they done the oil change? if not then that is the reason why it is still on, but to be honest, having low oil does not normally make the check engine light come on, you normally have an icon that looks like an oil filler can come on the dash when it is low on oil, this might be an underlying fault like an 02 sensor or MAF sensor that sort of thing, you would need to get it to a garage that has diagnostic equipment to do this for you...hope this helps
This should only be indicating time for an oil change. Now, if the red, check engine light comes on, then you have an oil/engine problem.
Possibly the maintenance light wasn't reset when the last change was done. If you don't have the owners manual to check, I found a referenced method (below) to reset it through AMSOIL synthetic oil products. Good Luck
To reset Engine Oil light. Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine off. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds. If the Change Engine Oil light is flashing, the system is reset. The light will flash for up to 30 seconds or until the ignition is turned off. If the light comes on again and stays on for 30 seconds at the next ignition cycle, it did not reset. You will need to reset the system again.
Have the oil pressure sending unit checked right away. If the light is working properly, it is a warning of insufficient oil pressure, which can ruin your engine, it's probably just the sending unit, but don't take the chance of ruining your engine. I assume u checked your oil level, it could also indicate very low level. countrycurt0
