you can turn off your engine light by disconnecting the battery on the truck and then pumping the brake pedal 3 to 4 times. i cant remember which. this worked for me on my 96 sonoma. apparently it also works on many other GM vehicles.

You don't have to pump the brake. Just disconnect the negative terminal from the battery for about a minute or so. That resets the ECM, but if you still have an issue the light will come back on.
