Hi all, new guy here. I live in Canada and I've got a JDM imported '91 Terrano (Pathfinder.)
Lately, within a few minutes of starting it I get a red overheat warning light intermittently coming on on the dash board. At least I think it's an engine overheat light, (second light down, right next to the parking brake warning light.) I don't have the owner's manual so I can't be 100% sure.
I don't think it's actually overheating because the temperature guage never goes further than half way between "C" and "H." The light comes on shortly after I start it, even when it has been sitting for a day in -20 celcius weather. When if first comes on the temperature needle has barely started climbing from dead cold.
Any suggestions? Faulty sensor perhaps?
