Hi leuice, This could be several things. It could mean that the fluid level is lower than necessary - fill to recommended fluid level. It could mean that the radiator is not flowing like it should - have the radiator flushed for obstruction. It could also mean that the temperature within the radiator is higher than it should be. In all cases, I would check/replace both radiator hoses, thermostat, and flush and fill the radiator. Both before and after the summer you should at least inspect/check your cooling system for problems. Good luck!

the gentalmen before is correct but you might also want to look into the temp sensor itself mine did the same thing and everything was fine so i hooked it to an ethos and it was showng -36 degrees that indicates a bad sensor so look into that
