Service Engine Soon light on?

2001 Excursion all running good. Came on a while ago but did go right back off. Today it's back on and staying. I am due for an oil change but is that all the light means? Will it know I drained and changed the oil? How do I know what it is or can I get it to go back off ,

Batteries also I think have been getting old. Sat for a week and was not strong enough to get truck started in the 20* days we have had. Jumped with truck and fired right up. Driving now for another day batteries are fine.

Thanks

don't remove it. Have it scanned so you will know what's wrong with the truck.

yep could be anything form map sensor to a chaffed wire under the valve cover....you should invest in a scanner, mine has been a true money saver. instead of driving down to autozone ever time i get a light( and my ford seems to have a new sensor go out every other month) i just plug in my scanner and start troublshooting
