Some models of the Pontiac Grand Am have a computer system that lets the driver know when regular service is needed. The service should be performed as soon as possible once the indicator light comes on. The computer monitors driving conditions to make the determination when to illuminate the reminder light. Many automobile mechanics will reset the service light when they perform the maintenance or service. If the mechanic fails to reset the light, or if you perform the maintenance yourself, the service light can be reset manually.

Step 1

Turn the ignition switch on without starting the engine.

Step 2

Press the "Options" button on the instrument panel until the service light is displayed.

Step 3

Press the "Set/Reset" button to open the reset confirmation screen.

Step 4

Turn the ignition switch off. If the message comes back on when the car is turned back on, repeat the process.
