Hey guys, 99 Series 1 Au Forte

I noticed yesterday before i drove off that my low engine coolant light came on and started flashing at me, i checked the coolant level and it was all perfectly normal, the car dosent over heat or anything like that, its not leaking and its fine,

I turned the car off then back on and it dissapeard all together never came back on all day,

Then it did it the same thing today,

Also becuase its only a pov pack it dosent have the sensor in the bottle

Im stumped, Im going to change the coolant tommoro and give the car a flush,

might be just a tad bit low so when u accelerate, brake, or turn, the coolant is moving away from the sensor.

Can also be the Cylinder head temp sensor faulty - or perhaps trans overheat?

The econ light will flash if the trans oil is over heated,

The head sensor is fine

If it does over heat, the Au has that shut down cylinder protocol
