A light has appeared on my dashboard it looks like a bucket with a droplet of water going into it. I don't have a handbook and I do not know what this is?

I own a Renault Clio (2008) and a light has come up on my dashboard which is like a bucket with a droplet going into it. I do not have a handbook, do you know what this means?

Do you

Hello,

This is for the water level in the radiator which is low, make sure the engine is cool before opening the radiator cap. Here is a video to see if the engine is cold or not

This could just be caused by a glitch on the electrical sytem. If the light reappears have the car plugged into a diagnostic computer to locate the fault !

How can you clear the service light on the dashboard without taking it to dealer.

If the 4 digit code is not working the car will need to be plugged into a renault diagnostic computer or equivalent to be reset.

Sounds like the key might be at fault. The coded ring detects a chip in the key as you turn it. They key may have broken down inside and may require replacing. Get it checked at a renault dealer as they may have to order you a new key and recode it also

Attempted to defrost car this morning noticed heater was blowing cold air - when driving the vehicle the temperature gauge rose quite fast with a red warning light + stop sign showing on dash board

You may have frozen engine coolant. Have a tech check the vehicle
