2000 grand prix question

I have changed the oil in my grand prix, however the computer screen on the dash still tells me that my oil life is low. Can someone tell me how to reset this. thanks

On my work truck (2002 GMC) he does it through the ignition key I think, some combination of on/off without starting gets rid it.Sorry I don't know the combo.

most shops use a scan tool that plugs into "ALDL" then they can clear all the codes in the computers memory when needed.

astrops,

Check out www.clubgp.com if you haven't already. I have a friend that is a regular on that site and it sounds like there is a lot of good info concerning Grand Prix's on there. Good luck!

What do you mean "ghetto" IT IS the way to DO IT.
Or are "ghetto" and "pimpin" new technical terms?

Are you talking about" low oil level, or due oil change" your pm is changed at the screen, maybe your oil level sensor is dirty?

Until the computer is disconnected, fuse or neg terminal, it will retain the change oil reminder. The computer does not "know" the oil has been changed and there is nothing to tell it.
He said his "oil life was low" not the level of the oil.

Lots of real bad info here, anthony 600 is the only one who got it close to right.
IIRC it is also in your OWNERS MANUAL.

Turn on the key and before 5 seconds passes, floor the accelerator 3 times and let off. Then turn the key of, then start car to check.
Now that my not be correct for a GM with an oil life index, but It works on most GM junk, so try it first.
