How long should the check engine light stay on

When I start my 2002 Kia sedona the check engine light will remain lit for about 3-4 seconds after the car has started and all other dash lights have gone off, is this normal?

YES…The ECM (computer) needs a little time to scan everything and decide everything is okay…
