Temp light on 08 650i

hey guys...so i was doing some searching around here to see if i could get some ideas on why my 650 temp light keeps coming on but there isnt a whole lot on the 650s havin this problem...so at any speed my light will come on regardless of how hot or cold it is outside..there shouldnt be air in the system since i have never had the rad cap off yet since i bought it..there is 1000km on it now and as far as the rad goes its clean...i havent checked the level in the rad which obviously is my first step and also im going to test the fluid for proper mix tomorrow...i guess the biggest question i have (probably a stupid one) is there a thermostat? i seem to have misplaced my manual...also any suggestions for this problem are greatly appreciated thx

Yes there is a thermostat(where your top rad house enters the engine).I would start by checking the fluid level in your rad,a buddy of mine had a coolant overflow that liked to leak and it got down on fluid and overheated alot.If your radiator is down on fluid fill it up and run it with the rad cap off to get rid of the air in the system.hope this helps.

Is it coming on as soon as the key is turned on and doesnt go off or does it wait till it gets hot and once it comes on after riding for a while it doesnt go off?

I've seen the temp sensors go bad. It might have grime on it or somethin. There is a test you do to see if its good or not.
