Temperature Warning Light (Again)Temperature Warning Light
Posted 16 April 2013 - 08:52
1. Water level - correct just below max mark
2. Fuses ontop of battery (which I understand includes radiator fan) all ok
3. Water tempertaure fine even after a long run (100miles). Light goes out after about 10 mins driving if ignition switched off and on
Noticed the fan does not seem to come on after stopping car when warm but may just not be getting hot enough and the Temperature gauge is at normal in the middle.
What should I check next or is it a trip to the garage?
Did post this tagging onto another thread but I think it got lost?
Thanks for any help.

This cured mine as well - put in less than half a small tea cup before Christmas as a tide over until I got around to having a proper look. No problem since so haven't bothered doing any more. Coolant now sits just on top of "max" mark.

Just to round this up. Garage (local not Skoda) said in their opinion still a problem with the expansion tank and like me they shorted it out to prove it wasn't doing as it should and I should take bottle back. Didn't keep receipt and didn't think garage would believe bottle still not working so bought another off another Skoda dealer (?16.00ish) with VAT. Now nearly after a month no problems. So fingers crossed was a faulty new bottle (Skoda part as well!). Incidentally managed to lose one of the double ended retaining bolts and nobody had one so had to order it. Be warned as I searched high and low for it to no avail.
