I believe this is done one of two ways. First, check the inside fuse panel to see if there is a push-button type relay located in it. This will be red and when depressed it will reset the oil life indicator. The other way is through a system of key on/key off cycles combined with ignition pedal pressing. My grandfather's Cadillac required you to turn the key to start (but not crank the engine) and off five times, while pressing the accelerator pedal slowly all the way to the floor and releasing it.

To reset the light, turn the key to the position just before the vehicle starts. (when all system check lights lite up.) Press and Depress the gas pedal four times completely. Then turn the key all the way back, like you are gonna take your key out. Wait Two seconds. Then turn key to on position just before truck turns on. You should hear three ring tones. Always works on my silverados 99-2006. Jiffy Lube taught me how. Let us know if you are successful!

Worked on my 2006 Chevy Silverado

From the other side of the world!(Netherlands) Tahoe LT 2001 works without the 3 ringtones but it works!!!

Got oil changed on 97 Silverado about 3 weeks ago and a tranny flush about 2 weeks ago. Oil pressure gage went to 0 a couple days ago. I had unplugged a few wires then plugged them back in and it went back to its normal. Two days later it went back down to 0 and today I started it and it died no more than a minute later. Any ideas?
