My engine overheated and it was on the overheat mode so half of the engine is shutdown. The problem is my engine is still on the same mode the next day. Is there anyway I can overide the code? :rolleyes2

The car will return to normal mode as soon as it cools down. There is no code to defeat. The engine has protected itself from permanent damage.

The problem is overheating.

The question is why.

You have most likely lost a lot of coolant, now you need to find out where it went.

Was it from a bad hose? Loose hose clamp? Bad thermostat?

Weak radiator cap? Radiator has debris blocking airflow?

Radiator cooling fan(s) not working?

Water pump or water pump belt failure?

Headgasket failure? You will need to pressure check the system to know for sure.
