RED usually means warning - sure its not orange or yellow? I would take it that your radiator is LOW on fluid. Quickly verify that you do have a properly filled radiator and expansion tank. If it is orange or yellow it would mean that the windshield washer fluid is low. This just happened to was an indication of a coolant leak. ==ADDITION== It is your coolant level indicator. It means you are low on coolant. Perform a visual check when the car is cool. If you're at the proper level, try cleaning the connection. The sensor plugs into the front of the coolant overflow tank. Disconnect it and check for signs of corrosion. You can also turn the key on and use a test light to check for power. Anyway, spray with WD40 and re-connect. If it still trips, or you don't have power, go see your mechanic.
