When you change the oil in your Chevy Sonic (also known as Aveo), you should reset the engine oil life system so that you are properly notified when it is due for service again. Use these steps to clear the oil light.
- Turn the ignition to the “ON” position to active the electronics system. Do not start the engine.
- Gently press all the way down on the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds.
- Turn the key to the “OFF” postion.
The oil life should now be reset on your Chevrolet Sonic. Try the above steps again if it didn’t work.
