P1870 is Transmission Component Slipping. I have also heard of it referred to as The Code Of Death.

There is no code associated with the "Change Oil" light like there is with the "Service Engine Soon" light.

The service engine or check engine light can be reset with a scan tool or by unhooking the battery. The light will return if the failure that caused the code is not repaired.

A service engine light can come on for many reasons. Someone can take the vehicle to the dealership or auto parts store to have them read the code and let them know what the issue is.

After repairing the cause of the code, you can clear it with a scan tool.

I don't know which "light" you're talking about, whether it's the light indicating that maintenance is due of if it's the service engine light, assuming it's the service engine light, borrow, rent or buy an engine code scanner from your local auto parts retailer. Often the people working at the parts retainers will help you connect the scanner and read the code. Some code scanners will clear the code on some vehicles, but if something is wrong the code will come back and turn the light on again.

With a code reader. Have your local auto parts store read the code(s). They provide this service for free.

Get a code reader from Autozone or a friend and plug it into the OBDII connection to read what code caused the check engine light to illuminate. A flashing check engine light indicates to NOT drive any further.

The service engine soon light on the car dashboard to alert the driver to a problem with the car. A specialized computer scanner or code reader can diagnose the issue.
