Dashboard Lights

Post by Ch2020 » Fri Oct 16, 2020 3:19 pm

Hi, this may sound like a silly question but here goes!

I have a 20 plate Qashqai and the noticed the other day the little thermometer light at the side of the dial was lit up white. I’ve never noticed it being on before so I googled it and it said about checking the coolant which I did and the coolant was low. Which surprised me as the car is only 4 months old and I’ve only done 2000 miles.
I topped up the coolant and the light is still lit up.

Should this be lit up white all the time? I’m 99% sure it’s never been there before.

It’s even lit up when I open the car door before I press the start button?

Thanks in advance and sorry for rambling on :)

Welcome to this forum.

That's not a warning light. It's merely indicating that's the temperature gauge.

There isn't a low coolant warning.

What did you top up with?

Ch2020, firstly welcome to the Forum. According to the Nissan J11B Information it states “Vehicle Overheating Stop Vehicle”. The other information is from a J11A Manual - Hopefully helpful !
Personally I would take a trip to your Dealer as a “Guarantee” Problem ?, let them check and sort it for you - Dave 😉

DaveBerlin - that overheating warning comes up in the central display though doesn't it?

Gloucester, Good Point - Over to You ! 😩 I have looked through what I have and can confirm the Warning is as mentioned but the position where it shows I cannot confirm. To me it is still worth a Dealer visit - Dave 😁

Well using the Brain I thought take a look @ our QQ with the motor running and this is what it shows, it stays white or lit up as Gloucester mentioned - Dave 🙄

Thank you for the welcomes and thank you for the help.

You have settled my mind, I just can’t work out why I’ve never noticed it before 🤷🏻‍♀️.

Thanks again for the help and I now know where to come when I’m not sure.
