Low engine coolant temperature indicator light -> stays on for 5 minutes... normal ?


I have a brand new Yaris 1.0.
When I start the engine the "Low engine coolant temperature indicator light"
stays on for about 4-5 minutes till it turns off.

Is this behaviour normal ? Shouldn't it turn off very shortly after the
engine has been started ?

We have about 54F/12C here....

I'm used that this display turns off really fast after engine has been
started from other cars, is this different with Toyota ?

Short and simple answer - Normal.

This question gets asked a couple times a year from noobs. Welcome to YW and enjoy your stay with us.

Yes, normal, especially since the weather has gotten cooler lately. It's around 40F when I leave in the morning now.
