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.

I have a 2002 alero how do you reset, the coolant light is always on. Thanks, Alero owner
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.

My tire pressure light has been on forever. I finally got it to go off by holding in the reset button til it blinked and then shut off. You can try that.. if not it's just gonna stay on.
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.
When your security light comes on and your car will not start, turn you key to the on position and wait 10 minutes. The light will go off and you need to turn the key to the off position, then restart your car.
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.
Push the odometer trip reset till you get to "oil" then press and hold down till it reads "100"
you can't really reset a battery.... to reset the sensors and the panel, open the fuse panel by the drivers door and hold the red reset button for about 10 15 seconds. It should make the same ding sound as when an indicator light comes on
Should reset itself when fluid is added unless sensor is bad
Have the problem repaired and they will reset the light. If you DIY then disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes. If that does not reset the light you will have to have it reset with an OBD2 scan tool.
General Motors products do not use inertia/reset switches
Reset the change oil light on Mazda 3
hold the engine reset button in until it resets
there are two things to do first you can reset the computer by disconnecting the battery for about 1/2 hour then if your light still comes on after that just go to an autozone and they will check the light out for you for free and let you know what needs to be fixed and what code you have.
You don't. Just and fluid and it will go off.
