It resets the 'Oil Life Monitor'. After changing the oil, hold it down for a few seconds until something beeps or flashes on the dash.

What if the reset button wiil not cut off the service engine soon light on the 2001 Oldsmobile alero?

If you are referring to the reset button inside of the fuse compartment then the answer to your question is that pushing that reset button is not meant to clear the service engine soon message. That reset button is what you would press after changing the oil (after the change oil message comes on to the left of the tachometer)... If your service engine soon message is on consistently then chances are you may have a problem with some part of your emission system.
