View Full Version : Oil Light Reset

04-17-2004, 11:18 AM
On my 2001 Grand Am, there was a button on the fuse panel used to reset the oil life monitor. I recently changed my oil on my 2004 Grand Am, and as I went to reset the oil life monitor, I found no reset button.

I read through my owners manual, and it said to press the accelerator pedal 3 times with the ignition in the on position. I tried this procedure several times with no success. Does anyone know if there is a "trick" to resetting the oil light, or if I'm doing something wrong?

Thanks for the help.

nope, that is the right way.

Turn car OFF (not running)

turn to ON (DO NOT START)

push gas pedal to the floor 3 times in succession. It should reset in a second or 2.

Thank you for posting. I did not have my car running when I wrote the post. All I did was have the key in the "on" position, and couldn't get it to work. I will try it again though.
