2005 Monte Carlo Change Oil Light Reset

My husband gave my car an oil change and said he couldn't find a reset button, so I went online. I read that if I turn the key (not starting the engine yet) and step on the gas pedal to the floor three times that should reset it. It didn't work. Does anyone know how to keep the light off until the next oil change? Thanks, Bree :)

You are almost there, but you stomp the gas pedal five (5) times and you will get a short series of beeps letting you know it was reset. Be sure the radio is off as well before doing this.

Reset oil light


If you have steering wheel controls you can reset it by getting to the oil life indicator (mine is on the left side lower button menu when wheel is facing forward). Then press the arrow button for a few seconds to reset it. If you don't have steering wheel controls you can reset it by turning key to on position but don't start vehicle. Press gas pedal all the way to the floor three times (some say 6 times). Turn key off. Oil life should be reset went you start engine next time. I hope this works for you.

I JUST CHANGED THE OIL ON MY 2006 COBALT AND THE READ OUT STILL SHOWS 25% ,MY QUESTION IS HOW DO I RESET THIS .THANKS


Try this and if it does not work let me know.

1. Turn the ignition key to the "Run" position but do not start the engine.

2. Press the display button until the display reads "Oil Life"

3. Press the accelerator (gas) pedal all the way down and all the way back up 3 times within 5 seconds.

4. The oil life index should reset to 100 or the display will read "Oil Life Index Resetting", and when completed then turn off the ignition.

Start the vehicle and verify that the oil life has been reset, and if it did not reset then repeat the procedure, because sometimes it will take more than one try to clear and reset the oil life index.


If that does not work then try this procedure...


1. Press the fuel information button until ENGINE OIL LIFE appears on the Driver Information Center (DIC).

2. Press and hold the select button.

3. The engine oil life percentage will return to 100.

4. Turn the key to OFF.

5. If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset.
Repeat the procedure.

Flashing light shows a car and a keyh inside


Thank You Very Much for The Maintenance Required Light Info, as far as the flashing car w the key inside. I'm not sure what key we have? When we bought it it only came with one key so we tried to make a duplicate, which ended up not working because we later found out it needs a chip (or probably what I hear as the smart key?) If the light is supposed to be on (and normal) why does it need reset?

The Maint Reqd light blinks after 4,500 miles, and stays ON continuously after 5,000 miles. This is to remind you that you need an oil change. Give the info from you about your key, you do not have a smart key. You have a transponder key. Off topic, but, FYI, a Toyota dealer can program a transponder key for you.
Back to the Maint Reqd light. Here is how you reset it:
Turn the key on.
Make sure that the odometer reads "ODO", and displays the total mileage traveled...If it displays trip a or trip b, push the black button by the odometer to make the display read ODO.
Turn the key off.
Press and HOLD the black trip reset button until advised to release it.
Turn the key ON. (keep holding th reset button down)
Observe the odometer display.
you will see 5 dashes, 4 dashes, 3 dashes, 2 dashes, 11 dash, followed by five zeros, and the total mileage you started with will re-display.
Release the button.
Turn the key off.

Regarding the flashing light with the car & the key: This is the indicator to show potential theives thatyou vehicle has a sophosticated security system, and it CAN NOT be started by "hot-wiring" it. The flashing light is normal, and consumes no battery power. I hope that this helps you understand these two items better. Thanks for choosing FixYA, and the graciousness of a FixYa rating for my solution to you would be greatly appreciated. Glad to be of assistance; please feel free to call upon me anytime. Have a great day.
