2004 Trailblazer 6 cyl
Anyone know how to reset this light? I helped a friend
with an oil and filter change. The manual states this must be reset
but no instructions as to how.
If you do not have the Driver Information Center then you use this method:
How to Reset the CHANGE ENGINE OIL Light
The GM Oil Life System calculates when to change your engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Anytime your oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where you change your oil prior to a CHANGE ENGINE OIL light being turned on, reset the system.
To reset the CHANGE ENGINE OIL
light, do the following:
Turn the ignition key to RUN
with the engine off.
Fully press and release the accelerator pedal slowly three times within five seconds.
Turn the key to LOCK
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL
light comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
For the Driver Information Center:
There is very little howto information when it comes to this in the Driver Information Center chapter on the DVD...
Find the button on the steering wheel that has an "icon" that looks like the arrow on the keyboard of your computer return key. Press this according to my service information DVD, it says that this button turns off or acknowledges messages from the Driver Informaiton Center..
If that don't work then try the fuel button
