Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

I suspect a faulty temp sensor or faulty water pump as the most likely cause.

these isn't much you can do from the side of the road. you can try unhooking the vehicle battery for a period to reset all systems but the proper path forward would be to have the vehicle scanned for faults as a first step

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
