I have a 2000 Intrigue, just got my first oil change. Almost immediately after that the "change oil light" has come on each time I started the car. I think it is just from the car keeping track of miles but it is disconcerting. Careful with the "low oil" light, Intrigues do go through a quart of oil or so between changes.

AnswerThis problem happened when we changed the oil and the light was still on afterwards. If I remember correctly, I put the car in neutral and pressed the accelarator 3 times in a row and the light in the dash should go off. AnswerYes. in order to reset "change oil light" you have to depress accelerator pedal 3 time withing 5 seonds (with ignition on, engine off). The light will blink if you did it right. AnswerThe "change oil" light works based on revolutions of the engine ROM the time you last reset the "change oil" light. The oil life monitor does not measre the quaality of the oil. So the "change oil light can go on after 3500 miles or 8,000 miles.

After each oil change whether the "change oil" light is on or not, you should reset the oil life monitor. it is very simple but you have to the procedure carefully or it willnot work.

Put key into ignition, turn the key to the "ON" position. let the car go through it's cycle of lights (norally lasts 3-4 seconds). Depress the accelertor pedal 3 times within 5 secnds and WAIT for the "change Oil" light to flash. Once it flashes 3-4 times it will go off. The oil life monitor has now been reset.

How do you turn off the daytime running lights on a 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue GLS?

This is something that if you want done permanently, needs to be done by a dealer, as they would have to disable this feature on the car. in Canada, it is illegal to drive without DTL (day time running lights) on the car. If you are wondering how to do this while sitting still, before starting the car, put the emergency break on, then start the car, and the DTL lights will not come on, once you release the emergency break, the lights will turn back on, making it impossible to drive with out the DTL lights running. Hope this answers your question!
