Best Answer

open the fuse panel on the inside of drivers door, locate the red RESET button, near the top of panel, with the key turned to ON position and car NOT running, push the RESET button until change oil light flashes, let go of the button and hit it again, this should make it go out. If you have manual it will list it in there as well. Let me know if you can't get it.

If all else fails, with the accesories to the car (the first part of the ignition sequence, I belive), you can push the gas pedal all the way to the floor and back to the original position three times. After that, it should reset the light.

After changing the engine oil, you must reset the system. To reset the system, you must do the following: 1. With the ignition key to ON, push the RESET button located in the driver's side instrument panel fuse block. 2. When the CHANGE OIL light starts to flash, press and hold the RESET button again. The reset is complete when you hear the chimes sound and the CHANGE OIL light goes out.

How do you reset the change oil light in a 2003 Oldsmobile alero?

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.
