Smart + others :)
A rad fan fault will bring up a coolant fault. Suspect rad fan but do the usual checks, fuses, connections etc. Actuations via star too.

My air has stopped working too, not checked to see if the rad fan is working, the air con is still working in the centre console and glove box.
The air con switch flashes light red light if you try to switch it on. Scanner says ' faulty air con switch'. The main switch you use to switch on the air con has been checked and is working.
Where is the next switch to check located? o_O

If I was at home I'd have a look for you, but I'm sure someone will be able to help.;)
