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.
