Hi Daniels, I did a little research and most people are saying that if you turn the ignition to the on postition (dont start the engine) and completely press the gas pedal to the ground 3 times and fully release 3 times within 5 seconds it should reset the system. The lights should flash on the dash. Also your owners manual will tell you how to reset the light. Go to the index in the back and look for the appropriate page.

Wrong. That only works for the change oil light.

To reset the dam thing like I did on my 01 silverado there are 2 ways to do it and only 2 ways. 1st have it done with a scanner . If it comes back on you can have the problem fixed by a pro or pull the cluster and pull the bulbs. Once you pull it dont be fooled by the bulbs on the back. Find on the cluster where the light is then very carefully with a small screwdriver lift the cover to expose the bulb on the inside and remove it with a needle nose pliers. U wont hurt anything. Hope this helps.
