Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the temperature gauge dropped and ETC light came on at the same time then you have an issue with actual coolant temperature or the coolant temperature signal. It's possible that you have a coolant leak and the sensor wasn't reading actual engine temperature any longer, or you may have been missing coolant temperature signal. If the coolant sensor fails or the circuit goes open because of wiring or connector damage then it will cause what you are having.

Were you able to get it repaired?
