Re: flashing temp light on 4000SQ

Whenever the temp light starts flashing on my 4000SQ, it usually means
that the coolant level is down a bit.  Filling the little overflow
tank up to the MAX mark stops the flashing.  You're right...it only
flashes during hard cornering when the fluid sloshes around.

In a related incident, my brake light started flashing when coming
down some steep mountain roads in New Hampshire.  It turned out to be
low brake fluid level; not below MIN, but low enought that when you
were going down a twisty downslope the light would come on.  

So, check and see before you panic.
