Hi There,

Recently flushed coolant system, after a while add coolant light comes often. Checked with mechanic he said there is cooland leak. Now meantime another issue devolped, Instrument panel light & all gauges and heat/AC doesn't turn on as I Start my car. It comes after a while like 2-5 mins interval. I have checked my car for OBD code and found P0449 & P0443. Just wondering if coolant leak caused mositure to some of the magentic/electric parts which lead to those code.

also wot the main cause of coolant leak? Just hoses or something else could be involved. Is that some thing can be done at home?

thanks
