The computer needs to be read. The error code will provide a starting point for service. The thermostat may be bad depending on why the water pump was replaced.

Hi the water pump light comes on for 1 or more of a few reasons, it could be that you have a coolant leak and the pressure is not high enough and this could be causing you the warning, it could also mean the water pump is corroded and is not pumpin the water as it should do and this could also cause it to come on, it could also be that the thermostat has gone and is not opening properly and this causes pressure to build up and this gives you the warning your getting.

the first thing to do would be to check the coolant level and if ts dropped then the chances are you have a coolant leak somewhere and this will need tracing and sorting out,
if you find no drop in coolant level and then this would suggest either the coolant is not pumping round the engine properly due to the water pump failing or it could be that the thermostat is staying in its closed position, this would all need checking and the thermostat would need taking out and tested.

i hope i have given you a few ideas of what kind of problem you could be having.

please let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance or have further questions and ill be only glad to help you.

please rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Oil pressure light went on on my 2000 audi a4 1,8t. What should i do?

could be sender or pump. do not run the engine until you're sure you have a good pump. Does it blink on and off--coming on mainly at idle? This would be normal for an old engine. If it stays on and the pump is bad, you will ruin your engine. You can try replacing the sending uniot, as that is cheap compared to the pump, but don't run it long to check new sender. If new sender stays red, shut down and replace pump.

On my 1995 Monte Carlo the service engine light has come on and it feels as if the car is going to shut off at a stop, like its just jugging to stay going. I believe it is the fuel pump, or fuel filter,...

Service engine light just came on. what does it mean? Have just over 90k miles. recenlty replaced timing belt, water pump and head cover gasket.

Since it just came through major surgery,chances are something was left unplugged.but could be as simple as an oxygen sensor.unhook positive(red)battery cable for one minute,hook it back up and if light comes back on take it to Auto Zone,they'll check it for free.

Noise when car is started

Sounds like the starter stays "sticked"on... Check the starter relay or after the sound goes away touch the starter for heat. If its too hot it means it stays on working even when the engine is allready running...
