    Bobby,

    First off, welcome to The Corvette Action Center.

    I highly suggest you pickup an owner's manual for your '91. You can find them at either MidAmerica or Ecklers (both are listed on the Parts and Accessories page of this site.

    You're 91 is equipped with an oil life monitor which needs to be manually reset each time you change the oil. Here is the procedure:

    1. turn the key to the "On" position, but don't start the engine.

    2. Press teh ENG MET button on the Trip Monitor and release it. Then, within five seconds, press and release the ENG MET button again.

    3. Within five seconds, of Step 2, press and hold the RANGE button on the Trip Monitor. The CHANGE OIL light will flash.

    4. Hold the RANGE button until the CHANGE OIL light stops flashing and goes out. When the light goes out, the Engine Oil Life Monitor is reset. This should take about ten seconds. If it doesn't resent, turn the ignition "OFF" and repeat the procedure.

    Hope this helps.

    Your manual tells you procedure for resetting "change oil" light, its easy - turn key on but don't start engine, press ENG MET, within five seconds press it again, within five seconds of that, press and hold the GUAGES button. The "change oil" light should start to flash. Keep holding the GUAGES button and the "change oil" light will go out in about ten seconds.

    The change oil light comes on based on calculations of engine rpm and average temperature over a period of time. Changing the oil does nothing to reset the count.
