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.
