Does anyone else get the solid blue coolant light when you first turn on your car after a while?
thanks and no i did not read it to be honest lolSomebody asked that before in this forum...
I believe the answer was - it is normal and it will go away when engine warms up.
I did not see rationale why this indicator is needed as don't you want cool cooling liquid?? For further info look at page 100 in your owners manual (obviously you guys did NOT read it ha, ha).
So that's the correct thing to do? Wait until the symbol disappears before driving?Quite to the contrary, you want coolant temperature up to operating temperature as quickly as possible. This may seem odd, but is believed to have contributed to the CR-V/Civic 1.5 turbo oil dilution problem that you may have heard of.
Too cool of intake charge does not atomize well leading to droplets of fuel to "drop out" of suspension and cause unburned fuel to puddle in the cylinders and cause cylinder washing and accelerated ring wear. WardsAuto reports, Honda spokesman Chris Martin says updates involve transmission and engine software changes that allow the engine to warm up quicker, reducing the possibility of un-evaporated fuel collecting in the engine oil early in the drive cycle. Ignition timing, CVT control, and air-conditioning operations are modified to help the engine warm up and retain heat.
I believe it indicates that your engine isn’t warm enough or close enough to normal operating temperature. So just take it easy while that light is on. It will be interesting to see how long that is on this winter.Does anyone else get the solid blue coolant light when you first turn on your car after a while?
I find this real odd. Everytime I start my car it's a guarantee that this light will be on if it's a cold start or hasn't been on in less than in hour or so, and it's summer. I can only imagine this in winter. I find it hard to believe that a car in 2022 would be made with such an inconvenience. Maybe this is something not normal and will lead to a recall?I believe it indicates that your engine isn’t warm enough or close enough to normal operating temperature.

As per manual, indicator stays on until engine reaches normal operating temp. I doubt anybody will wait few minutes before driving for engine to reach 'normal operating temp'. That would mean idling and wasting gas and time.View attachment 2610
Straight from the owner's manual. Correct me if I'm wrong but I interpret this as only being an issue IF the indicator stays on. @roymerperez_yt maybe you can ask the service advisors at your dealership when an opportunity arises? Is it safe to drive if this indicator appears at startup and disappears within a few minutes of driving or is waiting for it to disappear BEFORE driving required.
