If the light comes on then everything is not fine. You need to have this looked at by a professional, before you do damage to this engine. Overheating is serious in modern engines that run hot in the first place. The car is 9 years old, and it is time for a complete cooling system service, if it has not been done. Drain, and flush coolant, replace thermostat, and install a fresh supply of a 50/50 mix of coolant and distilled water, and finally bleed the system to remove all trapped air. Be sure and check all hoses, and replace as necessary. Check the operation of the cooling fan, and clean the exterior of the radiator fins. And finally if all is indeed fine, then take a look at the temperature gage sending unit. It may be defective.
if the car is not overheating it can be the coolant senser.More info is needed to give you a more accurate answer, are you loseing coolant?does your engine backfire ?have you checked your thermostat?
you get coolant and fill it up
Coolant system warning light. It should go off when you add coolant.
It's a warning sign that you are low on coolant.
you may need to replace the sensor for the coolant, there should be a wire connected to it.
The Vectra warning light is called the engine management warning light. It tells you that you need to get your Vectra checked by a mechanic.
Get your engine checked
Sounds like the low coolant warning light Check the coolant level
Coolant level warning light. It is either your coolant warning light, wiper fluid warning light or low tire pressure warning light.
The coolant level sensor is faulty.
i think warning signals mean that something need to be checked on the vehicle, so it would really be an indication that mechanically something is wrong and needs to be checked out
The reason the coolant light is on in a Saturn vehicle likely indicates a low level of coolant. Filling the receptacle should fix the issue.
LOW ENGINE COOLANT LEVEL WARNING LAMP (page 68 MB Owner's Manual)The warning lamp comes on with the key in steering lock position 2 and should go out when the engine is running.If it comes on with the engine running, the coolant has dropped below the required level.If no leaks are noticeable and the engine temperature does not increase, continue todrive to the nearest service station and have the coolant added to the coolant system.(see page 77, MB Owner's Manual)Hope this answers your question !Roodeschool.
I checked, you are not a member, therefore you can not be warned.
fill the coolant reserve and the light should go out
Add more fluids
You are low on coolant or the low coolant sensor/wiring/connection is bad.
Have you checked your brake fluid?
Check your overflow bottle to make sure there is adequate coolant in there. If there is, the coolant level sensor is faulty and must be replaced.
If it is the low coolant light, it may mean your coolant is low. If it is not low, it may be the low coolant light sensor malfunctioning.
Check coolant level in recovery tank Perhaps a bad sensor. Sensor located in coolant recovery tank
It's connected to the coolant tank. Mine was worked on by a previous owner, and isn't working, so the coolant warning is always on. Look for a wire coming from the tank.
Coolant leak possibly no fluid in radiator, hence the picture of a radiator.
A malfunction has been detected - get it checked out
Take you car in to a mechanic and have the brakes checked.
