hello the cooling service light is triggered by a time interval since last service, if you just clear it with this procedureProceed as follows to reset the service reminder indicator (SRI):-Ignition position I-Press and hold in the reset button for the trip odometer-Ignition position II.Note! Turn the key to position II within 2 seconds.-Hold the reset button for the trip meter pressed in until the original value has been reset.Note! For all vehicles from the 2003 model year a general yellow lamp will light when the reset button must be released.-Release the reset button for the trip odometer within 4 seconds. The instrument gives an audible signal when resetting has succeeded-If the trip meter is already reset the reset button should be held in for a minimum of 10 seconds and a maximum of 14 seconds.Note! If the reset button for the trip odometer is not released within 4 seconds, the service reminder indicator (SRI) is not reset. if the message persists and the car isn't overheating I'd ask a dealer to re-flash the ECU software with the latest issue as this update should help
