I think it means your cooling fan is not working or it could be coolant level.

I agree low coolant but make sure you didnt know off the plug to the low coolant sensor on the bottom of the coolant tank. Make sure there isnt any water in that plug and the cooling fan plug as well.

Lotta people around here are missing their user manuals and that sucks. I guess I got lucky getting mine with the car. All the cars I've owned and sold I made sure to keep the owners manuals with the car.
