Re-setting change oil light -- 2002 Pontiac Grand Am

Recommended Posts

Maybe I missed it in the book, but I didn't see how to reset the change oil light in these cars? Is this a turn the key on and push the gas peddle three times deal????

there is a fuse box on the drivers side of the dash between the dash and the door. There will be a red reset button. Turn the key on (do not start) and press the button one time. The oil change light will flash (or maint. required or whatever it is). Push and hold the red button until you hear the audible beeps stop.

Its in the manual under oil life monitor or sometimes you will have to go to the warning lights page. I don't remember specifically.

Page 6-19 of your owners manual

How to Reset the Change Oil Light

The GM Oil Life System calculates when to change

your engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Anytime

your oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate

when the next oil change is required. If a situation

occurs where you change your oil prior to a CHANGE

OIL light being turned on, reset the system.

After changing the engine oil, the system must be reset.

To reset the oil life indicator, do the following steps:

1. With the ignition key in ON (a short time

after turning off the engine), press the RESET

button located in the driver’s side instrument

panel fuse block.

2. When the CHANGE OIL light starts to flash, press

and hold the RESET button again.

The reset is complete when you hear the chimes and the

CHANGE OIL light goes out.

Isn't the Grand Am one that you can turn key to ACCESORY, pump gas 3 times, then start it?? I thought that was a standard on most GMS

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
