Customer Question
I'm getting a coolant...

I'm getting a coolant display not working error.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles on the car? How has your mileage been lately?

I have 70,600. Mileage is good. Literally just spent $3000 today getting the PCM replaced. Driving home this error came on

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 600 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Hello my name is***** this was not on prior to the PCM being replaced then chances are that it was not programmed correctly. If everything seems fine with the vehicle and it is not running hot then you need to take it back to where you had the work done to get it fixed properly. I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more help as I strive for an excellent rating. Thank you.
