The a/c should throw any warning except not be blowing cold air if leaking. The coolant/radiator light no most cars is simply the reservoir is low or the sensor is bad. The car wont light up a warning or can tell if coolant in the radiator is low, only if it's overheating form the coolant temp sensor to the ECM. Check all fluid levels. Check cooling system for leaks and if you find fix immediately, will cause major problems later and will start with constant air pockets in the system.

Obviously it's temperature gauge light. Check for coolant level first. Then check for coolant leak. If coolant is leaking out of your car, the lower coolant levels in your engine will cause it to overheat. If you have your heater on and it starts blowing hot air instead of cool, your engine is low on coolant. This will cause to flash a warning light on your car's dashboard.

My wife reports a check engine light and a red square with a wavy line warning light...can you help


The red square with the wavy light is a low coolant warning light. The check engine light could be on for many reasons. I would check the coolant and add some if it's low. Then you can take your car to many different places to have the engine code read. Most AutoZones and Advanced Autos and other auto parts places will have a customer use code reader and will pull the code for you for free. I would address the coolant problem asap, low coolant can cause your engine to overheat and blow the engine. The engine light may also just be on because you have the low coolant warning. If that IS the reason for the engine light, after cycling (car gets to normal operating temp then completely cold) the car about 3-5 times the light will go off on it's own. Good Luck!

I get a warning message, "HIGH ENGINE TEMPERATURE-STOP ENGINE" from our 2002 S60 Volvo upon starting. The check engine light also comes on. The electric fan come on and runs for approx. 2-3 minutes....


Mine is doing the same thing. I have taken it to the shop and the mechanic can't find anything wrong with it. When he resets the diagnostic, the car runs fine for a few days then it happens again. I'm thinking it is something due to the cold temps here in NW Iowa. It is obviously not a cold weather car!

Yellow coolant light comes on then disappears after a few minutes BMW Z4


i take it this is on a cold start? its just low on coolant you may want to have it pressure tested as the coolant system has alot of plastic and can fail most likely to fail is the side of the radiator, the resevoir tank or the T-stat seal

Warning on ondoard computer


Hi Bobby,
Check the electrical connector to the water header tank - if it is corroded or not properly inserted it might be the cause of the warning.
Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a ratingjust now. Just come back and tell me what
you found. Cheers, D

VW Passsat - 98 -


ABS and coolant are unrelated unless there is a problem with the ECM (engine control module) or instrument panel. Is the red coolant warning sign for coolant level or temperature?

With ABS if there is any failure with any brake electronic component (sensor, motor, or fluid level etc) the ABS will shut down completely and flash the light. If the light is on or flashing the ABS is non functioning.

I need better information on the coolant and ABS to give better information.
