Q: Overheating after brake modulator replacement

asked by on

I had the brake modulator replaced on my car. I put coolant as well. Then, I started driving briefly so as to get the computer reset after the repair. The car then started overheating. I should mention that there was enough water in the system. What has happened and caused overheating?
