Are you positive that it's not overheating? Have you recently done work on cooling system that you had to drain the coolant out? If so did you properly belch/burp the cooling system after you added the coolant back in?

If air in cooling system the alarms will continue to keep sounding off.

Wiring between the sensor and dash may be shorted to ground. This will give a false overheating signal. Follow the wires back from the sensor. Look for a damaged wire touching the engine. That would do it. HTH. -Jim
