How do you reset the Change Oil light on a 2001 Chevrolet suburban?

Well, assuming you've changed your oil, try disconnecting your battery, then reconnecting it. You'll lose your presets on the radio, but it should work. Otherwise, you may have a bad fuse.


On a car with a computer you should NEVER disconnect the battery in an attempt to clear any lights. It will not work as you can not erase the memory. You can possibly fry a computer with the power surge of reconnecting the battery. Press the gas pedal to the floor 3 times in 5 seconds with the key "ON" and the engine off.

Reset button in the fuse box. Look in the owners manual.
