Engine Hot A/C Off

Asked by angered Feb 22, 2019 at 04:15 PM about the 2008 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I noticed on my drive one morning to work the
dash was displaying this message and the
temperature gauge was all the way down. The next
time i drove the car and since then, i haven't seen
this message and temp gauge has been normal.
Could this just have been a reaction to cold
weather or is there something i should check?
