Car is overheating and its telling you to turn items off to prevent overheating here are things that will cause overheating that you may want to check....Could be the folliwing: The pump may not be leaking but it may not be moving the water through the system (Impellers may be broken) thermostat may not be opening, fan may not be coming on at the correct temperature (should be at about 210 to 220) you may need to flush the system. The antifreeze mix may not be correct (should be 50/50). You may have air in the system that needs to be bleed out. Defective radiator cap. Air vent could be clogged. The exterior of the radiator may be clooged with debris and may need to be cleaned.

It sounds like you have low coolant, Check the coolant level.

Is the outside of the radiator packed full of snow due to going through drifts? Get lots of snow in the wrong place and they will heat up quick. Outside air temperature doesn't have much to do with it at 20 degrees.

I agree, if the heater is not putting out heat and the engine is hot, sounds like low coolant for one reason or another.

Check the coolant level in the radiator, not the plastic recovery tank unless you don't have a radiator cap. If it's full in the radiator it could be a defective thermostat. However if you overheated and the heater was blowing cold air you're low on coolant or there's air in the cooling system. When the computer detected the overheating it shut down the air conditioning. Air conditioning puts an additional load on the cooling system. The computer will shut down the air conditioning system under overheating conditions and full throttle operation. HTH. -Jim
