Do another search. There's step by step instructions on how to reset the oil lights and the inspection lights. It's real easy by shorting certain circuits under the hood. The DIY is very clear on what to do. Make sure you only short the proper wires. They are numbered and it's easy to touch the wrong wires and create a lot of trouble.
I've read of people just bending a paper clip in order to make the connection. Not sure if that's husky enough, however. I took a piece of romex cable laying around in the garage and cut a piece of a single wire in it to about 2". Stripped both ends and bent it into a "U" shape. Stuck it into the two holes (#7 and 19, I think) and continued the procedure. It worked beautifully.
