I JUST GOT MY 03 IMPALA. ITS A 3.4L V-6 AND I ALREADY DID A TUNE UP. CHANGED MOTOR OIL, OIL FILTER, TRANSMISSION FLUID, AIR FILTER, PLUGS, WIRES, NEW BATTERY AND ALL OF THAT BUT I CANT FIGURE OUT HOW TO RESET THE "CHANGE ENGINE OIL" LIGHT ON DASH. IF ANY ONE HAS THE ANSWER I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE THE HELP BECAUSE THAT LIGHT REALLY BUGGS ME. I HATE SEEING THOSE LIGHTS ON MY DASH.
Do you
have the same problem?

TURN KEY ON AND PRESS GAS PEDAL TO THE FLOOR 3 TIMES AND HOLD IT TO THE FLOOR. FEEDBACK AND VOTES ARE MUCH APPRECIATED.

Hey I just got an chevy impala 2003, its july right now, im sure youve found a solution, but the solution is in the owners manual, I cannot remember how to, its some codes you have to press on the radio. I never read about hitting the gas3 times, sounds bogus, I suppose to got to close one eye and stand on one leg when you do that.

Most impalas reset oil change light thru the radio, with radio off hold on/off button in till display changes then scroll up till oil life appears push on/off button until you hear beep and rest appears in display

Look closely at the service manual. It says 2002-2004. I have worked for chevy for over ten years and thats the way we do it.

You were right. The radio worked for me. Tried the gas pedal and that didn't. I have the 03 with the 3.8 V-6.

For the sake of arguing, here it is:
Mastertechtim is absolutely right. Although the radio is one way to do it, pressing the gas pedal is another (quicker) way. I used it before to reset my wife's 2003 impala.
