If the light stays on, it shows that there is a hard fault in the fuel system, emissions control etc etc. Either disconnect the battery for 15 minutes or so or take it to a shop to get the code read..that will tell you what part is malfunctioning. There is no other way to shut it off because the light is controlled by the ECM.
I have taken it to the shop but the computer says there are no codes stored then the light goes out but a few days later it comes back on I take it to the shop and it is the same responce No Codes Stored and the light goes out
go to a mechanic shop and get a scanner plugged in to your vehicles brain

can you tell me why my 1999-2000 Chevy trailblazer light is on

That requires an OBDII engine scanner.
No it will not.

There could be several reasons why a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am service engine light soon has come on. The engine may need a tune up, the timing belt may need changed, or even a bad fuel pump.

It means that the engine computer has detected a malfunction that will affect the emissions of the vehicle.
disconnect battery for 5 minutes, and then reconnect
Another way to disable the service engine soon light is to disconnect the battery for about 10-20 minutes.The most common reason for the service engine soon light to come on is that the gas cap wasn't tightened all the way.
unhook the positive on the battery for 5 min. This should reset your check engine light if it doesnt then you still have issues.
You need to scan the codes. Check with Autozoen for FREE scan.
It means your engine needs attention.
It's probably misfiring. You would need to diagnose why.
you could take a battery terminal loose for a minute then put it back
Try disconnecting the battery for a minute or 2 and then re-connect. This sometimes clears the codes in the engine control modules.
