First open the fuse panel which you will find by opening the driver's door and looking on the outer side of the dashboard. Simply pull the fuse panel cover and it will pop off. Near the fuse panel, you will see a white square button that resets the check oil light. I cannot remember the sequence of what to do...(push and hold the button, wait five seconds, release...push down again until the light goes off...something like that) Like I said, I don't remember the exact sequence to reset the light. But if you mess with it for a few seconds with the ignition turned on, the light will reset. It should come back on after 5000 miles, unless your oil change technician remembers to reset it.

I have a 99 Pontiac Grand Am GE. My button is not white or square, but rectangular and red, but clearly says reset. According to the manual, turn the key to the on position, hit the reset button briefly and you will see the change oil light flash. Hold down the reset button until the light stays on. It will reset it for 5000 miles. I just had to do this, and it worked for my car.

How do you reset the oil change light on an Pontiac Grand Am?

I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am. I recently had my oil changed and noticed the change oil light stayed on. To get it off I had to turn the key to the on / run position, but I did not start it. Then I had to push the gas pedal to the floor three times within 5 seconds. The change oil light went off after a few seconds. I turned the car off. I then restarted the car and the change oil light did not stay on, it went off with all the rest of the lights that come on when you first start your car.
