I have been trying to remove this notice for about 3 oil changes now.

How do you get the notice off:
ignition on depress gas pedal 5 times in 5 seconds, Off then back on.
Ignition on depress gas pedal 3 times in 5 seconds, off then back on.
ignition on depress gas pedal 5 times in 5 seconds, start engine.

Only thing different in the ignition is I added resistors to the security system so I could put in a remote start.
Would that be preventing me from clearing the oil change?

I don't have a manual for my car.
I also heard you can do it though the radio. That's not an option. I don't have a stock radio.

Using the Accelerator Pedal

1.) Turn the ignition to ON, with the engine off.
2.) Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds.

If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message flashes, the system is reset. However, if it stays on, it did not reset. You'll need to repeat the reset procedure.


- GM manual

I can't believe my brother still had the manual in the car. HAH!

They key is to use the entire five seconds to press the pedal three times. It won't reset if you to it too quickly or too slowly.

If you have the factory radio you can reset the oil life monitor on the vehicle customization settings

Hold the 'tune/display' button on your factory radio with the radio power off for approximately 10 seconds... options will come up, press the right arrow on the radio until you get to the oil reset option. Hit display, press right arrow for the reset now option... Once you have done that, a beep will sound and the light should go off...

By the way, I have a lime green 01 impala with the custom alarm... The answer is no to disrupting the oil light Wink

Go with what they stated as far as the ignition pedal.

I think your problem is your turning the ignition off.

1. Turn the ignition to ON.
2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds.

Wait for the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message to flash, indicating the system is reset.

Got it cleared!!!
You were right.. I just waited, but didn't see the oil change light. The Security came on the display went off and back on. I did it again just to make sure. Upon starting the car, the Change Oil display didn't show..

Thank you!!

Btw. How many miles before it triggers again?

It uses some sort of algorithm that uses total engine revolutions and some other parameters to estimate oil breakdown. FWIW, I haven't seen my oil life indicator go off in over 2 years (around 20k miles).

For some reason I remember being able to choose how many miles I wanted it to go before coming on. I think I chose 5000 miles, did my oil change around 90k, im at 95,250 now and my change oil light is on. Could be wrong though
