In your Model :-
The automotive thermostat is a temperature controlled on and off valve. When the temperature rises to a predetermined temperature, the thermostat opens up to allow the engine coolant to flow through the cylinder block and the radiator. This flow is crucial to maintain optimum operating temperature for fuel efficiency, enhanced driveability, and engine protection. The coolant flow is reduced when the engine is cold, and the flow is increased when the engine is hot. Contrary to popular opinion, operating the vehicle without the thermostat doesn't make the engine run cooler. It will actually run hotter because there isn't a thermostat to slow the coolant flow. This means the coolant doesn't stay in the radiator long enough to dissipate its heat.
TO TEST THERMOSTAT
There are several ways to test the opening temperature of a thermostat.
One method does not require that the thermostat be removed from the engine.
Positioning a thermostat into an engine.
TO REPLACE THERMOSTAT
If the radiator is filled to the top with coolant and the engine is run without the radiator cap in place, the coolant will expand and spill over as the engine warms up.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The fact that the service engine light came on indicates a fault has been recorded. Most chain auto parts stores have complimentary diagnostic tests that will determine the fault code. Depending on what the code(s) is will determine the course of action. Considering a diagnostic test at a dealer runs $75 and up, I'd get the free test to get the codes. From there it may be a simple fix (i.e. tightening gas cap if u just got gas etc)

Testimonial: "Thank you. You gave me some great things to go on if it flashes again."
you didn't say which lights,
if your talking about dash light flickering,it is usually a sign of a low charged battery,on one on its way out.

Testimonial: "Yeah the dash lights and headlights flicker!!! Thank you very much for your advice.. Really appreciate it."
The ABS sensor is a speed sensor also for Traction Control. This is why both lights are on , One of your front ABS sensors are bad or disconnected, or has a pinched wire.

Locate the fuse pannel and check for blown fuse...If fuse not blown - check fan control relay for proper operation - If thats not the problem check for voltage at the switch.
