check engine light

Asked by Feb 25, 2016 at 04:51 PM about the 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Reg Cab Short Bed 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

should my check engine light come on briefly when
I start my truck then go off? I don't see it come on
at all. Just wondering if I need to replace it, not sure
how to replace it either.

Yes it will be on briefly during a startup system check but it should go out and stay out when the engine is running. If the light ever does come on while the engine is running then it is time to have the codes pulled to find out what component or circuit has failed.

easy to replace? is it a bulb or led setup?

year 2000 will still be a bulb. Not too bad of a job, you will have to remove the instrument cluster and replace the lamp from the back side.
