    What does this dash light mean on coupe turbo??

    its the orange/yellow light that looks like a radiator and has a star in the middle of it,
    occasionly i get this light come up when the engine is warm enough to bring the fan in. it doesnt come on whilst engine is running if u know what i mean, if i stopped, turn engine off, niipped into say a shop, come back out, start up and then the light stays on. if i turn it off again i can get the light to stay out

    Check your coolant first as above, but this can be a common problem on the ZLET's - there is a sensor block inside the bumper (above the foglamp on the nearside) which is open to the elements, the connectors for this can get corroded - so you should take off the bumper and check and clean these - some people then cover the whole thing with a plastic bag to protect it. It is this sensor that can trigger the coolant/air con light you are talking about.

    Having said all this - you're not running a Pace intercooler are you?
