I believe that is coolant temp below thermostat regulating temperature.

1. Check coolant level
2. Check Coolant temp sensor ( usually fairly cheap to replace)
3. Replace thermostat ( 20 bucks tops and 10 minutes of your time)
4. replace coolant with fresh stuff.


generally this is a code i commonly see during cold winter months, if happening during summer months just follow the 4 steps above and should go away

ps... your car is a secon gen.
