The change oil light comes on and frequently on my 2001 Venture. The "OIL Change doc" at our local garage says it is a problem with the oil screen. It gets gunked up and needs to be cleaned or replaced to stop this message. It could also cause overheating in the van if left unattended.Good luck!This information can be found in your owner's manual. Don't have one get one. Try Dealer, Salvage Yard, E-Bay, or do a Google search. Many sites sell owner's manuals.

6-16 How to Reset the Change Engine Oil Message The GM Oil Life System_ calculates when to change your engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Anytime your oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where you change your oil prior to a change engine oil message being turned on, reset the system. 1. With the ignition key in RUN but the engine off, repeatedly push the trip/reset button until OIL is displayed on the Driver Information Center. 2. When OIL is displayed, push and hold the trip/reset button for five seconds. The number will disappear and be replaced by 100 (indicating 100% oil life remaining). 3. Turn the key to OFF. If the change engine oil message comes back on, the engine oil life monitor has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

The service engine soon light means there is regular scheduled maintenance due on the vehicle. Oil change, tire rotation, transmission service, etc. All this is spelled out in your owners manual. This is different than the Check Engine light which means the ECU has detected a problem with the emissions system. You have to manually reset the light according to the instructions in you owners manual. Disconnecting the battery will not reset the light.
