Blue is normally just the high beam is on .With the overheating the red coolant temp warning light will come on so if the temp gauge needle is a little higher than normal and the red temp light is not on then all is still with in limits and she can continue to drive .As long as the check engine warning light is not flashing and the engine still running smooth then she can also continue to get home .If the check engine light is on you should have a check done as soon as you can , this is indicating that the management system has found a malfunction with in the system. As long as no red warning lights are ON you are still safe to drive .Temp gauge higher than normal but no red temp warning light on then find a petrol station and check coolant level .Need any follow up help then please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service.This way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.If i do not get back to you then i may be off line, and when i get back online i will get back to you..Your deposit does not pay me until the answer is rated in a positive way,Not rating or a bad rating does not constitute a refund.If you are not happy or you have sorted out your problem before the answer then please let me know with the reply button .Kind regards Greg.
