Ok according to my 2004 GM Owners Manual. If you are speaking about the light that looks like an "Oil Can". * The light goes on when you turn your key to ON or START. It goes off once you start your engine. That's a check to be sure the light works. If it doesn't come on, be sure to have it fixed so it will there to warn you if something goes wrong. * When the light comes on and stays on, it means that the oil isn't flowing through your engine properly. You could be low on oil and you might have some other system problem. Check the oil level and make sure you put in enough. If you are asking about the "CHANGE OIL" message that GM vehicles display on the dash then the steps to reseting that according to My Manual are. * The GM Oil Life System calculates when to change your engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Anytime your oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where you change your oil prior to a CHANGE OIL message being turned on, reset the system. * Always reset the engine oiul life to 100% after every oil change. It will not reset itself. To reset the CHANGE OIL message, do the following: * 1. Display OIL LIFE on the DIC. * 2. Press and hold the reset stem. The oil life will change to 100% and a beep will sound. * 3. Turn the key to LOCK. * If the CHANGE OIL message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure. Good Luck and Remember.
