    Coolant Warning Light

    Completely drained and changed my coolant at the weekend. Running fine, no overheating and bottle full...however the coolant warning light keeps coming on when i first start up.

    Any suggestions???

    Would an air lock cause this without it overheating???

    Cheers

    Scrape prongs in coolant bottle with a screwdriver and see if it sorts it. Very common problem evidently !
