Engine Coolant Temperature Warning Light

WARNING:


WARNING:

Never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. The engine coolant is under pressure and could erupt and cause severe burns. Wait until the engine is cool before removing the radiator cap.

This warning light shows the temperature of the engine coolant when the ignition switch is ON. The warning light illuminates if the temperature of the engine coolant is above 253.4±5.4°F (123±3°C). If the warning light illuminates, pull over and stop as soon as possible and turn off the engine. Then open the hood and check the coolant level (See "If the engine overheats" on the page 3-4.) and the water pump drive belt. If you suspect cooling system trouble, have your cooling system checked by a Hyundai dealer as soon as possible.

NOTE:

If the engine coolant temperature warning light illuminates, it indicates overheating that may damage the engine.
