25. Temperature Gauge

The temperature digital scale shows engine coolant temperature.

Any reading within the normal range indicates that the engine cooling system is operating satisfactorily.

The gauge pointer will likely indicate a higher temperature when driving in hot weather, up mountain grades, or when towing a trailer. It should not be allowed to exceed the upper limits of the normal operating range.

Driving with a hot engine cooling system could damage your vehicle. If all CAUTION!

Driving with a hot engine cooling system could damage your vehicle. If all the segments of the temperature gauge are lit, pull over and stop the vehicle. Idle the vehicle with the air conditioner turned off until the pointer drops back into the normal range. If you hear continuous chimes, turn the engine off immediately and call an authorized dealership for service.

If you decide to look under the hood yourself, see Maintaining Your Vehicle. Follow the warnings under the Cooling System Pressure Cap paragraph.
