9x6 coolant light reference

Recommended Posts


I found this post you made a few years ago:

More than two meanings for the temp light...

Covers all Carrera (996), GT3, TT / GT2 and Boxster (986) cars

Here is the long explanation from the service manual on the flashing coolant light.

"Four functions of the coolant warning light:

1. Engine coolant level too low -- light flashes slowly (0.5 Hz)

2. Engine compartment temperature too high -- light flashes slowly (0.5 Hz) (engine compartment blower might be faulty)

3. Engine coolant temperature too high -- light is lit; pointer on the right

4. Temperature sensor at water outlet faulty -- light flashes rapidly (1 Hz) ; pointer on the right

Note: The temperature warning in point three is indicated if the conditions "engine coolant temperature too high" and "engine coolant level too low" are present simultaneously."

Can you give the exact reference for this? I've looked in the workshop and owners manuals and can't find it anywhere. It's driving me crazy.

Group 1: Engine, Part 2 (as of Repair Group 15) -- 19 12 01 Coolant warning light in instrument cluster

Page 19 - 17

This page was added in supplement 21 (in 1999) so if you have a downloaded manual from one of those free sites you might not have it (or the other 98 supplements!)
