How to reset change oil light on 05’ Monte Carlo?

This answer was rated:

After changing the engine oil, the system must be reset. To reset the "CHANGE ENGINE OIL" message, use one of the following procedures:


USING THE RADIO

  1. Turn the ignition to "ACC" or "ON", with the radio off.
  2. Press and hold the "TUNE DISP" knob on the radio for at least five seconds until "SETTINGS" is displayed.
  3. Press the "SEEK PSCAN" up or down arrow to scroll through the main menu.
  4. Scroll until "OIL LIFE" appears on the display.
  5. Press the "1 PREV" or "2 NEXT" buttons to enter the submenu. "RESET" will be displayed.
  6. Press the "TUNE DISP" knob to reset. A chime will be heard to verify the new setting and "DONE" will be displayed for one second.
  7. Once the indicator has been reset, scroll until "EXIT" appears on the display.
  8. Press the "TUNE DISP" knob to exit programming. A chime will be heard to verify the exit.
  9. Turn the key to "OFF". If the "CHANGE ENGINE OIL" message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

USING THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL

  1. Turn the ignition to "ON", with the engine off.
  2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal slowly 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. Repeat the procedure.
  3. Turn the key to "OFF". If the "CHANGE ENGINE OIL" message comes back on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
