Hello, To reset it you can do this! With the key on, disconnect the ground from battery, turn switch to off position and then reconnect the ground to battery! This should reset it! It is just like the computers on Newer cars and trucks with the Service lights! To reset then you can do the same thing! Hope this helped! Rick

Flashing red light for oil when oil is full and has just been serviced?


i would question whether the oil changer might have broken the low oil sensor, or perhaps just knocked the connections off the sensor. to be more specific would require knowing the specific make/model vehicle to know exactly where to look for that sensor, and if it could easily be knocked when changing the oil or filter.

My ABS AND Brake lights and change oil light is on


Lets start with what is the year make and model ??
If the ABS light is on, you would need to have the computer scanned to get the trouble codes so you would know what component to test.
The brake warning light could be telling you the hydraulic brakes are low on fluid, or the parking brake is not completely off.
You would need to reset the change oil reminder, if it is a red oil light, it could be telling you the oil pressure is low.

How to reset check oil light


You mean the change oil light, right ??
If it has a red button on the fuse box, you turn the key on and push the button, the change oil light should flash, then you push the red button until the light goes off.
If you don't have the red button, you turn the key on, push the gas pedal to the floor three or four times, and the light should go off.
The method for your model should be in the back of your owners manual.

Why does the change oil light soon keep coming on.


It comes on when the computer recognizes that you need a oil change. In older models, they tend to come on for no reason. If the oil is good and you know it doesn't need changed, don't worry about it. A oil changed is recommended at 3000 miles, but I have always went 5000. You car has a sensor that recognizes the oil command. You might be able to get rid of it by taking off the hot side post of the battery. If your not worried and you know the oil is ok, I wouldn't worry about it. Make sure the cap is on tight though. If you have anymore questions, please let me know. I am here to help. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

A week ago i had all of my car oil change then after that week the oilpan light came up and it is steady red is not blinking sone time it goes away and then it come back what could be


hi, the oil light in your vehicle comes on to let you know that the oil pressure or level is low. sounds like the oil change was performed, but the oil level was not returned(not filled) correctly, or not filled at all. also a possibility that the oil leaked out from a leaking oil filter or drain plug. you should check the oil level on the dipstick before you drive again. if it is low, or empty, the engine will likely blow very soon. fill the oil if it is low until it shows on the dipstick. then top off until on the full mark. or, call the shop that performed the oil change and have them tow your vehicle back to have it serviced correctly. you should be upset at this fact, there should never be a time when you just have your oil changed and the oil light comes on soon after. this generally tells you that your vehicle was not serviced properly.

Reset change oil light


hello, here is the instructions on how to reset the light

When the system has calculated that oil life has been diminished, it will indicate that an oil change is necessary. A CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message will come on. Change the engine oil as soon as possible within the next 600 miles (1000 km). It is possible that, if driving under the best conditions, the oil life may not indicate that an oil change is necessary for over a year. However, the engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and at this time the system must be reset.
If the system is ever reset accidentally, change the engine oil at 3000 miles (5000 km) since last oil change.
To reset the Engine Oil Life System, do the following:
  1. Turn the ignition to ON, with the engine off.
  2. Slowly fully press and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds.
  3. The reset is complete when the chimes sound and the CHANGE OIL lamp goes out. If the lamp stays on and no chime is heard, repeat the reset procedure.
  4. Turn the key to OFF.
If the CHANGE OIL lamp comes back on when the vehicle is started, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

Red light indicator is on below RPM Gauge, which says "maintenance required" what might be the problem?


It's simply time to change your oil. After you change the oil, push your key into that slot on your gauge and it will be green until next oil change warning. Don't know how many miles you drive, but about every 5 or 6 months you'll see it change to let you know.
