It means the computer has detected a problem with the emissions system. It could be a number of things. Have the computer scanned to recover the code. This will help you determine what the problem may be.
You need to have it checked for codes. If you fix the cause of the codes the light will stay off.
How do I reset the service engine light on a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer?
take it to autozone they will check for free. wolverine Probably some problem with the smog controls. Probably nothing too major. If the service engine light is flashing, it's probably major.
Maybe you should service the engine soon. :P

I was told by a co-woker that if you disconnect the negative battery cable for about 20 minutes or so that will reset the service engine light.

The check engine light means there is a problem with the emission systems on the vehicle. The service engine light means that a regular schedule service is needed. Most of the time this means you need an oil/filter change.
The service engine light is the same thing as a check engine light.
disconnect the battery for a few minutes
Have vehicle scanned to determine problem
unhook battery or scan tool will do it
disconnect the battery for 1 minute and it will reset.
disconnect the battery for 30 seconds
