First off take it to most any parts store, they can put it on a diagnostic computer and pull up the trouble codes and tell you why the light comes on then stays constant. That should tell you the cause of your problem. If your still unsure, then post the codes and their meanings here and we can help more.

Battery light indicates alternator failure. If you have a voltmeter, check voltage at battery with engine running. Should be at least 14 volts. If no voltmeter, remove alternator and take it to parts store for testing.
If the alternator is bad and that is your only problem, the truck should jump start, but it will not go far unless the battery is charged. OK?

Service engine soon light.

There are hundreds of things that trip that light. You need to have your vehicle codes scanned to see what has caused it. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. It could be something as simple as a loose gas cap, but this is an easy way to figure it out!
