overheat light comes on

Hey guys, I have a 1999 srx 700, for the last 3 or 4 seasons my temp light has been on most of the time. I know its not overheating , and Ive tried to diagnose it but have not had any luck. it doesnt matter if you disconnect the wire fron the sensor or not , the light stays on. I have checked the wire for a short to ground but have found nothing, any help would be appriciated, thanks

do you get the three flash on startup and then the light stays on, or does it just come on and stay on at startup? you are referring to the light on the lower right portion of the gauge, say 5:00 ish?

you can test the temp sensor by removing it and placing it in some hot water then test the output with an ohmmeter compared to water temp.

there is also the possibility of a wire issue somewhere in the circuitry. the self diagnosis function is controlled by the cdi box. wire rubs or shorts anywhere in the harness could be contributing to the light issue. not an uncommon issue with the wires for that sled.
