    What warning light is this? (with cool pic!)

    I've looked everywhere, including about 25 pages of google images. I get a warning light on my dash occasionally, it is on about half the time I would say. I can't be bothered going outside to take a pic, so here is an *accurate* artist's impression...




    Hehe. It looks to me like a radiator - could it be something to do with the air con? I haven't actually tried the air-con, I've not had the car a week and it's freezing!!
    Thanks

    Oh...checked coolant level and that seems fine, and it doesn't seem to overheat at all, just sits at a nice level. I may change it anyway to be safe, I'm pretty sure everything else had been on the car since it was manufactured so I bet this has as well!

    My blowers are fine...if yours aren't then change your pollen filter, I did in both my astra's and it made a massive difference. I guarantee that the one in my first astra had not been done in the 12 years it had been on the road. There is a how to for changing it somewhere.

    my fault is sticking bushes in the motor, just treat it like a sticky starter motor n smack it, ill buy new one when i join aoc member..


    So the coolant module is at fault.. If its the actual module knackered would both our cars be running at correct temp? :s or are you saying the sensors gone?

    Coolant module determins everything coolant related electrically so can have different effects but still the same fault.most common fault is the actual module faulty so brings the lamp on, i think there under 50 quid new from main dealer but dont hold me to this

    hi guys sorry for butting in,im new on here and found your thread.
    that light came on in my 1.6 16v sxi when the motor in one of the fans failed and burnt out.(the day after i bought it!! SH!ted maself!!!)But apparently that light a can also have something to do with the coolant temperature sensor??
