i wasnt able to find anything about this and i think its in the right place to start this thread.
So anyway my girl friend has a 2001 GMC Yukon Xl with the 5.3 li. the check engine oil level light is on, ive checked the oil countless times and its fine, when it was brought in for an oil change they shut it off, but then it came right back on, the service engine soon light is also on and doesnt go off. i have no idea why they would be on any help would be appreciated esp since the mechanic had no explanation for it.

I think you can reset it by turning the key to the "on" position (do not start it), and pressing the gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. Then again, that's the way the newer ones are, so I could be wrong.

The Trouble Code...P1404 is telling you the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve is in a Closed Position,

I don't think that the 2 Trouble Codes will cause the Check Engine Oil light to come??.......as you have checked you Oil level and you said it good.....I would keep a eye on the Oil Pressure Gauge when driving to see if there is a Drop in Oil Pressure, that may cause the Check Oil Level light to come on??
