To reset "CHANGE OIL" light, turn the ignition switch to the run position without starting the engine. Fully depress and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds

This method didn't work for me. After changing the oil in my brother's 2001 Grand Am this morning, I tried it about a dozen times with no luck. Wound up calling the local Pontiac dealer for help and the instructions I was given worked like a charm. Do this...

1. Open the Driver's side interior fuse box and find the red reset button. There's a little diagram on the inside of the plastic pop-off cover that tells you where it's located. On my brother's car it was marked "oil/tire reset".

2. Put the key in the ignition and turn it to the "ON" position. Do not actually turn the car on.

3. Push the red reset button once and let go.

4. Wait a second or two for the "Change Oil" light to start blinking.

5. Push the red reset button again but this time hold it down until you hear the chime/beep/complaining sound. The "Change Oil" light should turn off as soon as you let go of the button.

6. Put the cover back on the fuse box and you're good to go.
