Turn Off an Oil Light on a 2005 KIA Spectra


1. Pull the vehicle over to a safe area, if the light comes on while driving. If you are very close to a store that sells motor oil, stop there. Do not continue driving with the indicator light lit, as severe engine damage may occur.

2. Turn off the vehicle’s engine and open the hood. Locate the oil filler cap and oil dipstick on the top-front of the engine.

3. Check the engine oil level on the oil dipstick. If the engine oil is low, remove the oil cap and add oil until the oil level on the oil dipstick reaches the “Full” mark.

4. Replace the oil cap and restart the Kia. The oil light should turn off within a few seconds of starting the vehicle.
