Turn the ignition to the ON position(do not start the engine). Depress the accelerator pedal complete and release it 3 times within 5 seconds. Turn the ignition off. Start car and check for change oil light to be off. You should also hear a tone. Sometimes I have to do this 2 or 3 times to get it to work. This procedure is in your owners manual. ADDED: The above information is WRONG Below was taken right from the user manual 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. I have the user manual for the alero 2001 should be good for this model too! send 14.95us via PayPal 14.95us I'll send you the 340page manual via e-mail 29.95 I'll send you the manual on CD The above mentioned information is correct for a 2001 model Alero but the 2004 model requires the very first procedure that was given. The procedure that is posted involving the gas pedal is directly from the owners manual for the 2004 model.

If a 2004 Oldsmobile alero recently had the oil changed but the oil light remains on What process does it take to turn off the oil light Thanks?

Hopefully you mean the "change engine oil" light and not he oil pressure light. Turn the key to the on position (do not start it), within 5 seconds press the accelerator to the floor 3 times. The change engine oil light should flash several times then go out. Who ever changed the oil should have done that for you.
