check the thermostat to see if it is opening properly (you can remove it and place it in a pan of water on the stove and heatthe water until it opens oh yeah don't forget to use a thermometer to find out what temp. it was) you should also check your antifreeze mixture for accurracy(try that first) if none of these work try flushing your heater core to see if it is stopped up

This could be an indication that you do not have enough antifreeze. The car heater will not work when there is no liquid in it. also the car will overheat.

Overheat IndicationYou've answered your own question. If the "overheat indicator" is indicating overheating, then the engine and the coolant is OVERHEATED!!!!!!Overheating is a serious situation and any indication of such requires that a qualified automotive technician check the vehicle and determine the cause for the overheating, and correct it to prevent permanent, and possibly very expensive, damage to the engine.Or, another remote possibility is that the engine/coolant temperature sensing/indicating system has become defective.
