Vauxhall Zafira radiator light

2001 Vauxhall Zafira Problem

hi i brought a zafira about 3 weeks ago there was a light on the dash which i noticed stayed on when i test drove it the person selling it told me it was ok its been on a while and hasnt been a problem for him but in 3 weeks time im going to take the car on holiday with the kids and was wondering if i could get a fix before i go just putting my mind at rest the light looks like a radiator with a star in the middle of it i have checked the water levels ad even changed the coolant plus im not sure if the air con works :S any ideas will be much appreciated

hi acidman that light is for the electonically controlled engine cooling their might be a problem with the cooling system or the cooling for the air con you can still drive hope this helps

From owners manual , says ''control indicator lights up when ignition is switched on. goes out shortly after engine starts'', it goes on to say ''if it lights up when engine is running a fault has occurred in the engine cooling syatem or the cooling circuit for the air conditioning. Electronics switch to emergency running programme. driving may be continued. check coolant level'' Better to get it scanned to see what fault is , especially if going on holiday . Hope this helps.
