There is no reset button. Cars built since 1996 have an OBD-II diagnostic connector. Connecting a code scanner will let you read out the reason why the SES light is on, and also to reset it. Alternatively, in most cars, you can reset the SES by disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes.

The check engine light (service engine soon) comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on, too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to a parts store or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area.

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.
