First off, I would take it back to the garage that did the service and have them tell you what codes are reappearing , have them shut the light off again and see how long it takes to come back on. Sometimes the computer has to go through a relearn cycle

What does it mean when service engine soon is on in my 99 jimmy?


Not related. The service engine soon lite is operated by the speedometer, so it's just coincidence that it came on soon after the water pump repair.

The ABS lite, No Trac Lite and Service engine lite keep coming on


When the Service engine soon, ABS and TRAC lights are turned on at the same time the computer control units for the engine and the ABS/TRAC systems has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system and the ABS and Traction Control system (part of the ABS system). When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different or the car drive any different. There are about 200 possible faults that turn the Check Engine light on, the fault in your car is likely a part called the VSS sensor to know for sure what the problem is you must have the system tested; Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free

THE SERVICE ENGINE SOON LITE COME ON WHEN I PUT GAS LIKE A LTTLE AFTER I START TO DRIVE WHY????


It's a "service reminder" based on your current mileage (odometer) Check your owners manual vs your odometer mileage and you'll see what's required for service.

Check engine lite


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. First step is to find out what code turned the light on.

98 C1500 Silverado ''service engine soon'' light


the service engine soon lite comes on due to an input sensor to your vehicles computer that has gone out of its parameters. this lite does not come on due to mileage. the computer needs to be scanned for code #'s in order to diagnose correctly. autozone will scan codes for free. if you get me the code #, ill try to assist further, otherwise you may want to see your local garage.
