Advice needed - Coolant Level Switch Failure
After taking my brother's ED for a drive, the coolant level switch light illuminated on the dash, and I feared the worst. It went out a few seconds later, and intermittently came on and off during the few streets home. Knowing that the temperature guage on the dash would only indicate normal heat if it had no coolant, I was scared the car was over-heating.
Once the car had cooled down, I checked the coolant level, only to find it was quite ok. I checked the water for any traces of oil, and oil for water, but everything seemed ok. In fact, the whole car seems to be working normally, with the exception of this intermittent coolant level light.
Is this a common or known problem with the ED?
To check the coolant level switch, can someone provide me with the position and precautions of doing this, and what to look for?
Any information would be much appreciated...
