just did my oil change last week myself, but the light just came on today! fcplm

I heard from some dude before that its the matter of connecting to two pins inside the plug (the big round, threaded cap, beside the fuse box) not sure what it is called.

pin #7 to ground....that's what I heard from some "DUDE!!!"

But do you honestly know what you're doing????

^+1 to that, but it really depends on how 'fresh' your SI batteries are. If they are dead or almost dead, no amount of 'jumpering' will stop the indicator lights from flashing.

anyways jumper #7 and ground turn on ignition but do not start car, wait three seconds and that will clear oil service light. As an aside, if you wait 12 seconds that will clear the service indicator light. If you dont know how to do it, pm me, im in burlington.
