First you have to properly identify what light you are looking at. If that is truly an oil pressure light, there is no reset and DO NOT run the engine. That light means immediately shut it down or your engine will be toast.

You then need to determine exactly why the light is on, whether you really have no oil pressure or whether the light system is faulty.

On the other hand, if this is an oil change reminder light. It has to be reset.

How to Reset the Engine Oil Life System
The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change the engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Whenever the oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where the oil is changed prior to a "CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON" message being turned on, reset the system.

WITHOUT DRIVER INFORMATION CENTER (DIC) BUTTONS:
  1. Turn the ignition to ON/RUN, with the engine off. The vehicle must be in P (Park) to access this display. Press the trip odometer reset stem until "OIL LIFE REMAINING" displays.
  2. Press and hold the trip odometer reset stem until "OIL LIFE REMAINING" shows "100%". Three chimes sound and the "CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON" message goes off.
  3. Turn the key to "LOCK/OFF". If the "CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON" message comes back on when the vehicle is started, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

  2. Press the vehicle information button until "OIL LIFE REMAINING" displays.
  3. Press and hold the set/reset button until "100%" is displayed. Three chimes sound and the "CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON" message goes off.
  4. Turn the key to "LOCK/OFF".
If the "CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON" message comes back on when the vehicle is started, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
