The light on the dashboard means just that "empty" or low level however you want to see it. If you filled the coolant level all the way up and you still have the light on that the sensor that measures the coolant level in the small reservoir is bad. Even if your car looses coolant, which you should keep a close eye on, the light should go off when you first fill it up.

* If your system was completely empty, (not only an empty reservoir), when you start the car most of the coolant may have left the coolant reservoir very quick and thus your light is on again. Double check.

Loosing coolant is more critical. If it is just the sensor it not a big deal and easy thing to fix.

Why are my cooling fans for radiator running constantly?


The cooling fans are supposed to run any time the a/c is on in order to keep air flowing across the condenser. Your a/c will not work properly at idle if they quit.

Car does not get warm. dash gauge sits close to


The most likely cause is the thermostat stuck in the fully open position which allows maximum coolant flow between the engine and radiator in very cold conditions. In such such conditions the coolant temperature will not increase to optimum and will run cold constantly.

You will need to have the thermostat removed and inspected. It is an inexpensive item and I would replace it with a new one.

On the passenger side in the engine there is a sensor near the radiator. If you look down just under the battery there is a gray or white 2-wire plug, that wire gets carroded from the battery and breaks off sometime take a look if it is you will see it. If you can't see a clean brake then pull (lightly) on it see if it puuls out, if it does there is the problem. Good Luck

LIGHT IN DASH BOARD


DO NOT operate your CRV until you have drained the coolant from the engine and radiator, then flush the system thoroughly w/ water.. Why did you add liquid detergent to the radiator? This will cause foaming of the detergent, and will probably result in diminished cooling of the system. Please describe the dashboard light that's on . Is it some type of symbol? Do you notice anything unusual about how the car is running? Please let me know the answers to the above questions, and the outcome. countrycurt0
