everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available in the REFERENCE section...make copies of the right sections...good luck :) open your drivers side door and you will see on the side of your dashboard a little door to access your fuses open that door and look for a little red button turn your key on but dont start your car push the button a couple of times until your oil light flashes then hold the button in you will hear 4 chimes then you can turn your key off and your light is reset.

There isn't one. Ford is mainly the only ones who have a reset switch.

Open up the drivers side door and you will see a cover pannel on the dash side. Pull the open and press the reset light until the light flashes. You must have the car ON.

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.

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.

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.

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.
