change oil light

The change oil light came on in my 2000 Grand Am. I had the oil changed but the 'change oil' is still lit. What should I do?

Be sure there is oil in it. If so, evidently whoever changed the oil didnt know to reset the lite, instructions are in the owners manual. Anyway, try this. Engine in park, turn key to on position (Do not start) Press accelator to floor 3 times slowly within 5 seconds, if the oil lite blinks a few times it should be reset. You have to do this procedure each time oil and filter are changed.

Correct. I have to do this same thing with my sister's 2002 Tahoe every time I change the oil. Procedure is in the owner's manual. Easy to do.
