Many of the GM vehicles of that vintage had an oil change reset button inside the fuse panel that is immediately adjacent to or behind the battery. If you can find that button, turn the key ON but engine not running, press and hold the button for about 10 seconds. Someone watching the light should see it flash a couple times. Turn off the key, then start the engine to see if the light goes off after the startup "test" sequence.

On the left side of the drv'r door you will see a fuse panel. open it, turn the ignition to on position, pres the reset button once, the light will start flashing, press and hold the reset button till the light goes out. Note also works for the tire pressure light. Also if you have been trying other methods, you can reset the codes by disconnecting the negative battery cable then connecting it. Then use the above method. It is in the owners manual
Turn your ignition switch to 'ON' (don't start the car) The reset button is on the driver's side instrument panel, this is also where your fuses are located. Press the recent button once and your 'Change Oil' light should start to flash. Press the reset button again and your 'Low Tire Pressure Light should start to flash. Press and hold the reset button until you hear a few chimes and then let go.(wait tell the light shuts off then let go) Your light should then be off. To get to the fuse box, you must have the drivers door open. Pull on the plastic piece and the reset button is there.

After changing the engine oil, the system must be reset. With the ignition key to ON (engine not running), push the RESET button located in the driver's side instrument panel fuse block. The CHANGE OIL light will start to flash, press and hold the RESET button again. The reset is complete when you hear the chimes and the CHANGE OIL light goes out.
If you are referring to the reset button inside of the fuse compartment then the answer to your question is that pushing that reset button is not meant to clear the service engine soon message. That reset button is what you would press after changing the oil (after the change oil message comes on to the left of the tachometer)... If your service engine soon message is on consistently then chances are you may have a problem with some part of your emission system.
go to your oil percentage then hit and hold reset button
On the driver side when you open up the door look at the end of the dash...there is fuse door open it and hold down the red reset button till the light come off.
Listed in your owner's manual. However, the reset pushbutton performs two functions. The first function is to find or select the change oil light. The second function is to reset the change oil light. So, when the manual says press the reset pushbutton, it means to press and release, press and release, press and release, ... and so on.... until the change oil light is selected. The change oil light is selected when it begins to flash on and off. Once the change oil light is selected by it flashing on and off, press and hold the reset pushbutton again in solidly to actually reset the light. Hold the reset pushbutton in until the chimes sound. This confirms the change oil light is reset and the light should go out.*Remember* before you even begin resetting using the reset button, the car must be in neutral or park or it will not work.AnswerIf you do not have an oil change reset button located on the drivers side inside the fuse panel. Turn ignition key to the on position (with engine off). Depress accelerator pedal 3 times. Oil change light should blink and you should here a beep, light will go out. Turn ignition key off.
