Hello, my name is***** you for the question. Is it the light by the temperature gauge that is coming on? Does it typically only come on after driving for a while? Have you checked the coolant level?

Does the check engine light come on?

No just over heating light

Thank you. Most of the time this is either caused by a short in the wiring to the computer or a problem with the computer itself. You need to use a computer scan tool to see what temperature the computer is seeing. If it is not the same temperature then there may be a sensor or wiring problem. Is this something that you plan on fixing yourself?
