the thermostat on prince engines are ecu controlled so either work of dont work, when dont work they tend to stay open sign of this is in live data on diagnostics can watch the car temp rise from cold if rises to 90c and holds around 90-109c it working fine, if start car from cold and with in 5-10 minutes its boiling its self then thermostat prob issue,
the warning light on the dash could be over 200 fault codes could be any of them so scanners that will cover P-codes is needed,, cheap hand held diagnostics scanner dont cover these and are very basic limited options on live data if any, autocom cdp plus is best value for money will do most things runs off a laptop cost around £40 on ebay, also wurth snooper another good one,
