Overheating Light

My Rhino overheated for the first time. I let it set 15 min. Then checked temp. of radiator, and was cool. Poped cap and was full. So now my light stays on. road 2 more hours and all was fine, but light stayed on. Now you can turn key on into run position with engine not running and the overheat light still stays on. I am figuring that I have a wiring issue, Any ideas where to start at?

Check to make sure the wire is still connected to the sensor, I believe its a green wire. The sensor is on the head.....that is if you have a 660, Maybe a bad sensor also

Just put my digital dash on the other day. I put my old dash in it today and the light is out. So I am figuring I have a bad dash unit. When you add an aftermarket temp. guage, how do you get the light out?

You have to ground the wire connected to the sensor on the head. Then the light will go away.

Well I took your advice and grounded the wire from the temp. sensor and that did turn out the light. So I am now thinking I just have a bad temp. sendor. Just put the thing in last week when I put in the factory digital dash. It came with the digital dash unit. Does it sound to you all like I need to replace the sender?

Its very possible that you could have a bad sendor
