Abstract

The invention relates to a system, computer program and a method. The method comprises the following steps: receiving continuously a first temperature value from a first temperature sensor for sensing the water temperature in a cooling system for the engine; receiving continuously a second temperature value from a second temperature sensor for sensing the water temperature in the cooling system immediatly after a retarder; determining whether a condition is satisfied, said condition being that the braking power of the retarder is above a predetermined braking power (in e.g. kW) for more than a predetermined time at the same time as the engine output is below a predetermined engine output ( in e.g. kW); and displaying in the display means either the temperature sensed by the second temperature sensor if the condition is satisfied or the temperature sensed by the first temperature sensor if the condition is not satisfied.
