If the light was on before you changed the oil and you now have the correct amount of oil, and correct viscosity, then it can be that your oil pump is defective. not putting out enough pressure. if you have an oil gauge, if that shows oil pressure is OK, then your light can be shorted out.

That has NOTHING at all to do with the oil change. Go to AutoZone and they have a tool to tell you what the problem is.

Engine light has it's own separate gauge, for oil pressure. The oil light will come in emergencies not the check engine light. If you put in correct amount of oil, run engine and check oil level. If it's OK, than light will go out by itself.

When you are getting kinda low on oil and it is almost to where you need an oil change when you brake it sloshes the oil and makes the light go off.

Hopefully you mean the "change engine oil" light and not he oil pressure light. Turn the key to the on position (do not start it), within 5 seconds press the accelerator to the floor 3 times. The change engine oil light should flash several times then go out. Who ever changed the oil should have done that for you.

Your question is too vague. If you are talking about the Change Engine Oil warning, you have to read your owners manual and use the radio volume button to reset the engine oil life after you change your oil. A check oil light could mean you are low on oil. Fill up to 'full' line on dipstick and the light should go out. If you are sure the oil is Full and the light doesn't go off, there must be a sensor that senses the oil level is low.

Because you need to reset the light after you change the oil. Changing the oil doesn´t turn off the light automatically , you need to reset it. there is a very small push button on the dash board that has a label "RESET OIL CHANGE", with the engine off, push and keep pushing while you turn the key to power up the accesories but don´t turn the engine on. the light will go off after a second or so.

It is in the manuel, it is a different process for different years..

To reset the "CHANGE OIL" light, turn the ignition switch to the "RUN" position with the engine off. Fully depress and release the accelerator pedal three times in five seconds. The light will flash twice and go out.

If you are referring to the oil light then you do not reset it. The oil light comes on when it detects low oil pressure. The light will go out when the problem is corrected. Can be the engine is low of oil, does not have sufficient pressure, or the oil pressure sending unit it bad.

The oil change light on your car will not go off until you get an oil change. If you have and it still hasn't gone away, you may need to go back to your mechanic.

Turn on the ignition but do not start the engine. Depress the accelerator to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds. The oil light should blink and then go out.jd

change oil and filter. The amount of oil in the engine is probably right on the limit of the sump sensor. Therefore, driving up and down a hill may cause it to go on or off, or when the oil is hot and expanded it may go off and come back on when cooled back down.

I have a 2000 Intrigue, just got my first oil change. Almost immediately after that the "change oil light" has come on each time I started the car. I think it is just from the car keeping track of miles but it is disconcerting. Careful with the "low oil" light, Intrigues do go through a quart of oil or so between changes.AnswerThis problem happened when we changed the oil and the light was still on afterwards. If I remember correctly, I put the car in neutral and pressed the accelarator 3 times in a row and the light in the dash should go off. AnswerYes. in order to reset "change oil light" you have to depress accelerator pedal 3 time withing 5 seonds (with ignition on, engine off). The light will blink if you did it right. AnswerThe "change oil" light works based on revolutions of the engine ROM the time you last reset the "change oil" light. The oil life monitor does not measre the quaality of the oil. So the "change oil light can go on after 3500 miles or 8,000 miles. After each oil change whether the "change oil" light is on or not, you should reset the oil life monitor. it is very simple but you have to the procedure carefully or it willnot work.Put key into ignition, turn the key to the "ON" position. let the car go through it's cycle of lights (norally lasts 3-4 seconds). Depress the accelertor pedal 3 times within 5 secnds and WAIT for the "change Oil" light to flash. Once it flashes 3-4 times it will go off. The oil life monitor has now been reset.

If I remember right, you have to turn the key to the on position (don't start the car) and then pump the gas pedal 4 times. Wait a couple of seconds and your go to go, if I remember it right. in all Chevy gm vehicles ive delt with check engine light and change oil light are two different lights. if check engine light is on you have to take it to a dealer for diagnostics and good luck with that (any dealer ive delt with tried to soak me everytime

You can reset your engine light by bringing the oil life display onto your monitor. Hold the scroll button in until the oil life goes to 100 percent. The engine light should go off.

To turn off the maint. req light (it comes on every 3k -5k mi. for oil change interval).

how to get the check oil light to go off on a 2001 olds alero

I have a 2001 DXG and had the same issue. For me it was the maintenance required light so I don't know if that's what you need or not. It means it needs an oil change or whoever did the last oil change forgot to reset the light. There is a certain machine that can reset the light, most mechanic's have them. If you can't find anybody with the machine I suggest you ask next time you go for an oil change. Hope this helped you!
