2009 Ford Escape Temperature Gauge and Heat problem


Small leak in head gasket sounds right. When the engine is cold check the coolant see if its low if it is, that is the problem with your heater. Now you have to determend why its low. Test the radiator cap, pressure test the coolant system check the serpentine belt tentioner, lose belt can cause loss of coolant.

When the engine is cold the radiator indicator light comes on when I start it and goes off about 5 minutes later.


The coolant level is probably low again. Once the engine warms up the level in the tank would rise.

Just bought this car; it is an automatic 2007 3-speed Yaris. When starting, the cool temp light stays on for 5 minutes or longer. If I start driving the car before that light turns off, the gears don't...


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Please let me shed a bit of light on your issue.

The blue coolant temperature light comes on when the coolant is below 177 degrees. That is the bottom threshold for the Overdrive to engage. In other words, the OD will not activate, (actually, it is prevented from engaging) until the coolant temperature reaches 177 degrees F. This is purposely done, because allowing the OD to engage sooner will allow excessive emissions, with a colder engine.

There is no need to wait until the blue light goes off to start driving. Your transmission just won't make the final shift until the optimum temperature is reached. This is a normal condition.

If you have an actual issue, your 'check engine' light will illuminate, and it will stay on.

Coolant sensor may be the problem. It is located near the thermostat housing. It may be sticking between modes & not operating properly.Also make sure coolant is circulating in system.

Failsafe engine mode light comes on, codes


Just a quick mention - for about a month my XK8 low coolant light came on intermittently. This week with no notice while driving normally I got Stability Control Fail and FailSafe Engine Mode and wtih great difficulty got the car back to where I started from (less than a mile). Two days later (when got time) and after a bit of research, I tried it again - same problem and a very unhappy engine. I then disconnected the battery for 15 minutes (probably more) to clear the engine codes as well as check all the wiring and vacuum stuff I could under the hood (at a Jaguar master mechanic's recommendation). No problems found but the car would start and immediately stall with the air intake hose disconnected from the intake butterfly. After I reconnected the air intake hose, she started and purred like normal. The problem is the BATTERY... It is low - I've known it for a LONG time BUT it always started right up and never skipped a beat. I intend to replace it tonight but fully expect that's the issue. I've had the car 6 years (it's a 98) and had NO problems except a dead taillight asembly.

Hope this is of value...
