Default Engine Temperature Level for Innova???

Hi, I just got a used Innova. The driving & everything is really great and i m having a great time.

Innova Owners pls help me here, I have a doubt. The engine temperature gauge stands at a lil below the half way mark in my Innova. Is that normal, or is my Innova overheating?

Congrats on your acquisition! A very sensible choice; mind over heart!

The temp is perfectly normal. Note this position and just keep an eye that it should never deviate from there regardless of where/how you drive!

Thanks mate. I will keep an eye on this.

One more. The Security light seems to be flashing always. And even when the car is locked and all the doors are secured, the 'Door open' warning is on.

Default Check your boot door

Hi,

Check all your doors and mainly the boot door. In my innova, the boot (back) door is always the culprit . This may be the reason for the doors open light glowing.

Little below the halfway mark is normal.

i think your back door is not locked, please close the back door tightly that light will go. And the flashing light is the driver side seat belt to be locked.
