    If its not come on again just visually check the levels on the tank. Mine did this a few times but the level was fine

    Isn't it because it is getting cold outside and the level dropped a bit more so the light came on. I would check the level when cold, it may just need a drop of water.

    if the level is fine it will be just a dodgy sender unit..buy a new header tank and it will cure that..

    Don't top up with just neat water.... always to up with 50/50 coolant mix or you weaken the strenght..

    I suspect it is a slightly low level hence the light went out when warm. You will only need to put small amount of water in so no real need for more coolant.

    This is the coolant level warning symbol...can't say I'd describe it as "a can with wavey lines in it"..
