Temp light comes on when I start he car and then goes on and off, but doesent run hot. This only started when I replaced the battery, and the battery keeps draining down. The alternator is charging.

Why did you replace the battery? Was it for draining as well?

The temp light will come on in the start position as a bulb check. It should be out when running

Is the "Service engine soon" light on?
If so does it have a TPS code?

Here's how to check for the code yourself.
