I was travelling from Cradock through to Aliwal North in the Eastern Cape when the radiator warning light came on. Unfortunately there was no water in the radiator water reservoir. After stopping, we’ve filled the radiator with water from fresh drinking water bottles and were able to resume our journey.
Just imagine the drama and inconvenience if the car didn’t have an early warning indicator light on its dashboard to give a heads up that the water had run out. The result would have been that the engine would have overheated and could be seriously damaged. Being many kilometres away from the nearest town would have involved hiring a tow truck. The delay to our journey would have also met additional cost for an overnight stay in a bed and breakfast outlet in the nearest town.
All this damage, inconvenience and cost was prevented by an early warning system.
