2016 Ford Taurus Temperature Light Comes On

Asked by Mar 16, 2019 at 12:05 PM about the 2016 Ford Taurus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This just started.  When I idle at a light, the temperature in the car rises to the
max and the light comes on and dings.  Once I start driving the temperature
goes back down to normal.  What could be causing this?

Radiator fans not turning on, could be bad fan motors, coolant switch or control module. Don't mess around with this as you could severely damage the engine in a very short period of time. Earlier Taurus's were known head gasket blowers even with just 1 time overheating.
