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

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
