The ECM which is the car's computer has detected a failure of a system or component. Auto Zone or Parts Source can scan your cars computer and give a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes). 
The codes are what is kept in ECM's memory so when the codes are retrieved, we can know how the Engine and Transmission is performing. This makes trouble shooting and repairing much easier and faster, as long as the person who is working on the car has an understanding to the type of problem and repairs needed to be performed.
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted when you get the DTC codes.

Read your owners manual. If it is the management light it probably needs to be reset. Meaning that it may have to do with the oil change.

Engine management light stays on .how do I turn it off as car runs perfectly ?


It is worth knowing what this light is trying to tell you about the car. Get a readout of the trouble code it has stored to find out, and in the same process then get the code cancelled after. In the USA Autozone will do this for you, or any mechanic.

Check trans light pops up when I put the key in ignition and start the truck up then it goes off and the Rpm rev for a little bit


You didn't mention the year, make, or model of your truck, but it's irrelevant.
As long as the light turns off once the engine is running, nothing to worry about.
It is normal for an electronically-controlled engine to "rev" momentarily when it is first started but, if the RPMs stay over 1000 for more than a minute, there's a problem.

Hello
When the service engine soon light a yellow light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

Abs light comes on when the ignition is on. why?


First I suggest to check fuses and scanned fault codes. Could be a problem with speed wheel sensor.

Check engine light stays on


When the Check Engine light is turned on the computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible faults that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Hi

It sounds like maybe a sensor has been left unplugged, but to be fair any engine work can make them come on, it might be worth running it for 500 or so miles see if it goes off, if not you may have to get it on the daignostic machine. I wouldnt worry about it though modern cars are just made to tempt us into paying the dealer.
