False warning signal: coolant temp.
#1
Hello everyone,
Mine is a 1.6 HDi diesel reg. July 2006. Berlingo Multispace.
The fault is that the 'coolant level/temp' warning light comes on. complete with bleep and flashing STOP warning. This happens at random times when I can find no fault. It happens only when the engine is warmed up, but there seems to be no pattern - ie OK for several days, then on and off every few minutes. I suspect the sensor is faulty but I do not have a manual for this model (Haynes not yet published?), so I can't identify the sensor. I live in France and my local Garagiste is inclined to be a bit too thorough, and replace bits until the problem goes away. Has anyone come across this problem. please?
I'm new to the forum, so I hope I have correctly navigated the icons, smilies,thread subscription, poll, attachment usage: (I think that's all). No doubt a Moderator will put me right if need be.

Many thanks in advance Dave

You have checked the coolant level, haven't you? Big Grin

Thanks to Ron for his note about the Haynes Manual No 4281. I already have this book which covers the Berlingo from 1996 to 2005 - ie not late enough for me. I would expect a later book to have a differrent number; perhaps you can put me right. Thanks.

The 'new' 4281 has been updated to include the 1.6HDi:
