Temperature light came on...what to do or what does it mean????


Generally the temp light means the engine is too hot assuming its the light for the engine.
Check the fluid level in the radiator and the overflow tank, and see if the radiator fan runs when the engine warms up.
Could be a problem with the thermostat too if the engine is running hot.

HOT TRANSMISSION LIGHT FLASHING


When this warning light flashes it means the fluid (ATF) temperature of the transmission have reached a level that is detrimental to the operation of the transmission and damage will occur if the cause is not corrected. The causes can be overloading (towing) the vehicle, severe operational circumstances such as high air temps. Other common causes are excessive slippage of the transmission due to worn clutch packs or a defective torque converter. Also the TFT (trans fluid temperature sensor) can malfunction and send a false signal to transmission control module (TCM) and set the warning light. I would not ignore this warning, have it checked by a transmission shop or the dealer.
