My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
Check the over protection relay for a blown fuse and if this is o.k. this may be an issue with the engine coolant temp sensor sending an incorrect signal causing this here.
Thanks Pete
