Check gauges light comes on

The light comes on as the temperature gauge jumps toward the red, yet it does not overheat. The thermostat has been replaced twice; hot air comes through the vents and there is no apparent leaks anywhere. The radiator, the temperature sensor, the hoses, and the radiator cap have been replaced with new.

This is an ECU connector problem. The ECU is on the top left of your engine bay as you look from the front bumper. It has three connectors going into it. These connectors carry ALL the electrical info to the ECU, and they get corroded and lose contact in just two years. Jiggle them and it will get better for a day. My Jeep dealer did not listen to me and did not fix the problem (Crown Jeep, Dublin Ohio) until my car was out of warranty.

The light is triggered by the temp guage, it is telling you the engine is near to overheating, you will need to find out why the engine is running hotter than it should, enough to trigger the warning indicator.

Trouble codes p0118 temperature po118


code p0118 refers to engine coolant temperature (ETC) sensor ---circuit malfunction===causes---coolant thermostat---wiring open circuit/short to positive---wiring short to ground---ground wire defective---ECT sensor.. The temp gauge works off a temperature sender unit separate to the coolant sensor and if it is reading 100 then it indicates an overheat situation in the engine . Probably why the engine light is coming on. As the thermostat is in the list of causes I would replace it as a precaution. The coolant sensor is what tells the CPU to turn on the electric fans to cool the radiator

Ford focus 2003 temperature gauge jumps to red


Check the operation of your thermostat.
Check that the radiator is filled with fluid and that there are no bubbles in the system (this should only be as a result of a radiator re-fill).
Check that the radiator fan comes on as the gauge needle moves over half way and into the red.

My temperature gauge is not registering and my check gauges light comes on when im at a stoplight.when im driving the oil pressure is fine but when i come to a stop or idle the check gauges light blinks on...


A faulty temperature sending unit. It should be located on or near the thermostat housing. If any of your gauges reads zero, the check gauges light will come on. Sometimes even if the fuel gauge gets too low, it will trigger the light. It may be the connection at the sending unit. It may have become loose so wiggle it and make sure it is securely connected to the sending unit. If the temp. gauge needle pegs at the top of the gauge, it means the sending unit has grounded out and is faulty. If it jumps, reads off or not at all it could be a faulty sender or a bad connection.

Check gauges light comes on


Sounds like a CPU problem. your radiator may need a good flushing a s well. i would also check the heater core for any unusual problems like seal break or leakage.
