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 :) To reset your change oil light, GM uses the "3-step" method:

I have a 1997 and here is what the manual says to do:

With the ignition key in the RUN position, but the engine off, fully push and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds. If the CHANGE OIL SOON light flashes two times, the system is reset. However, if the light comes on and stays on for five seconds, it did not reset. You'll need to reset the system again. ...Good Luck!

Sometimes you can reset the security light on a Monte Carlo. Open all the doors and then lock them and close them. Next, use the key to unlock the front driver's side door.
