how do i reset change engine oil light.i have aftermarket cd player too. i tried gas pedal slow and fast 3 times with nothing, i change oil when needed but it always stays on for the 1st couple mins after car starts. i need to change oil again cause its due,got a warm day coming. i hope this time the light will shut off this time.
if it doesn't reset is the a sensor that may need to be replaced..or different method.

IIRC correctly, it's another one of those press the pedal three times, using 5 full seconds to do so things. If you don't get the timing right, it won't reset (like the tire pressure monitor, headlight switch trick).

When I changed out a hub assembly on my sisters Yukon and then noticed it needed oil changed too, since she hadn't changed it in 14K miles....I could not get the pedal to reset it and I used to work in a shop doing changes on all kinds of GM cars....so I just unhooked the battery cable and let it sit for about 20-30 minutes...that will turn it off too, but it will also reset everything in your car at the same time.

In your owners manual or check the FAQ section here.

There isn't a sensor for the oil change light, it uses a mathematical equation using engine RPM, mileage, hours of use, etc.
