'04 Saturn Vue Oil reset?

I just changed the oil for my wife's boss on her '04 Vue. Question I have now is how do I reset the oil light on the dash? Dang computer stuff for oil changes.....


Thanks, Chet.

Never mind guys, I called my brother-in-law and he told me to turn the ignition to "run" with it not started, and then pump the gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. However that is supposed to clear it is beyond me, but I believe it worked. Now, can someone elighten me as to how pumping gas into an engine with fresh oil is going to help the oil viscosity? I thought flooding a car was supposed to be a bad thing. And now by pumping gas in like that, it seems to me like I just flooded it.


In a while, Chet.

Pumping a pedal in a fuel injected car does nothing from a fuel standpoint, its not like the old days

The pumping the pedal 3 times procedure to reset the "change oil" light works on earlier OBDII cars (like a '95 or '96 Impala). On later cars, like my daughter's '04 Malibu, it's a function of the vehicle information center (part of the radio display) and you have to scroll through a menu to reset it.

Mauss, I checked the owners manual of a co-worker of mine who also has an '04 Vue today. His said to reset it the way I did the one last night. Right out of the owners manual. Now, my Brother-in-law's '04 Silverado said to do the reset on the menu as you said. Weird, to say the least.
