    in my wife's saturn, there's a reset button in the fuse box under the hood. you turn the key to "acc" and then hold the button for about 10 seconds and you're good to go.

    Check your vehicle's owner's manual - the GM car I have has instructions in the manual.

    I have a 2003 Grand Am GT and the fix is indeed posted above. Turn the key to the "accessory" position, then push the accelerator pedal down three times fairly quickly. You will have to do this again when the computer determines that the maximum oil change interval has been exceeded. I believe the light comes on after about 7500 miles from the last time it was set.

    On some the Grand Ams i have seen the oil light is reset by the low tire button in the fuse panel, press and holding it one flashs the tire light, twice does the oil light, if I remember right.
