A warning light came on this morning in my ED XR6. I drove my car round the block and then got online to see if I could find out anything about it, but couldn't.

It is in the middle-ish of the cluster, has what looks like a water bottle with a fan on it. I don't have the glovebox book that probably should tell an owner what the warning light refers to. Could someone check their book for me and let me know?!?!?

Could it be related to the air conditioning? The air con belt went ages ago and I never bothered replacing it (during winter!).

Overflow bottle - you are LOW on coolant, top it up.

Fill your radiator up and pray that you havent done a head or head gasket! Keep an eye on the water levels closely, and if they keep going down, start wondering. You may just have a leaking hose, so park it up on some concrete, and in the morning see if theres a wet patch. If there is, try and locate where its coming from, and fix it straight away. Might be a good time to check all clamps and make sure they're nice and done up. Or open the oil filler cap, and have a look underneath. If its coated in white thick congealed oil, you're in trouble!
