It was the thermostat? And the fuse box should tell you which one I assume, or the manual.

Zinc,

You can't run 100% coolant in any car. It WILL overheat. You need to strive for a 50/50 mix of coolant and water. Either drain half the coolant out of the system and fill it up with water, or drain it all out and fill back up with a 50/50mix. Until you do one of these two options, the car will always over heat and possibly damage the engine.

Also, a little tech note- when a thermostat fails, it gets stuck open. Thermostat failures only result in cold engine temperatures. Never will it result in an overheating issue.
