Check the termostat or check the fuse panel under the hood It could be nothing or something that could run alot of money. Check everything from front to back. Good Luck.

what kind of vehicle is it ,most likely the problem is when radiator was replaced and filled with collent,the colling system was not blead to let air out of the system,so have it blead by your mechanic.
