Such symptoms usually indicate a fault with the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor but there are other possibilities so you need to perform testings first.

Is the MIL indicating?
Start by checking for trouble codes.

Thanks! This could well be it, the coolant ran out prior to the problem. Would this have damaged the sensor.
Do you know where the sensor is located?

Yes, low coolant can cause the sensor to be damaged.

Our database does not have any information on this vehicle so iI am not able to tell you the exact location. Mostly ECT are located at end of cylinder head, near the themmostat housing or where the upper hose comes out of engine.
