This error is a Flame failure alarm.

It would be good to click HERE and print off all the alarm codes to keep.

As you've just put new gas on, you will probably have to purge the system of air before you get any gas through.
You can probably do this at the heater end.

You first need to check you are getting a spark to the pilot.
If not, check electrical connections, and trace fault to the ignition assembly.

If you are getting a pilot flame (unlikely as you're getting an alarm), you will need to concentrate on the hot-wire sensor and check if it is faulty.

Thanks for using Fixya. Please rate if this works for you.

2004 chevrolet suburban service engine light flashing - what does this mean?

If you have - or can borrow an OBD tester - down load the diagnostic codes and check in the manual for their meaning. You can also shunt the dianostic port with a wire and read the flashes off of the instrument panel to see the codes being flashed and find their meaning in the appropriate service manual (this manual will also tell you how to properly shunt the dia port). A GM dealer will sometimes advise on this.
