Anyone know how to reset a service soon light on a 2002 Chevy Silverado 1500?

I can't seem to find any info on what I'm looking for..

he does all his own service and it seems it's based on mileage..

he doesn't have a pc and I thought I'd see if there was any info out there on this..

all of my searches only come up with check engine stuff.. can't find anything and i really don't want to join another web forum just to ask one question..

anyone? figure it would be worth a shot

My google search has led me to believe the the Service Engine Soon (SES) light is indeed a "check engine light"... I know on my previous Mitsubishi vehicles, it had a "Service Engine Soon" light which has identical function to that of a traditional "check engine" light...

Try hooking up a OBD2 scanner to it and see if you come up with any codes...

It's unrelated to the OBD2 CEL code system,
its a maintenance light for oil changes, and things like that..

From WikiAnswers:

Turn key on do not start. Then push the gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times being sure to let all the way off each time. Then turn key off and then start the truck.

No way that resets the service indicator. And on the older chevy's the sevice engine soon was also he light for potential current code in the system. You try just calling the dealer? When i first bought my yota and did the oil change I just called the dealer and they told me what to do.

He's right, and might I say, that is the stupidest thing (or atleast just one of) that any domestic manufacturer has ever done. I have a 2000 Cavalier (that I can't seem to get rid of) that has the little "wrench" light on and I have tried it all and cannot get it out short of removing the bulb. Stupid stupid stupid.

Actually, that is correct intel. That is how I reset it on my Dad's Silverado.

It's actually ridiculous because the owner's manual only tells you how to reset the oil change indicator on trucks with the oil life remaining option in the odometer display. It doesn't mention anything about models without that option that require the pedal trick.

It's also worth noting that Mom's 2008 Grand Cherokee uses a similar method except that it is five pedal pushes and not three.

if three pumps of the pedal doesnt work (maybe a different model year) try 5 GM vehicles are pretty standard as far as reset proccedures. the only thing that changes is on the older saturns where you have to open the hood turn the key on and in the fuse box there is a little red button that you hold for about 5 seconds.
