Try disconnecting the neg side of the battery to reset the computer. If this does not work you probably have a bad low coolant sensor which is located just aft of the thermostat housing. you can pick one of those up at any auto parts store for under 20 dollars

1997 JGC Laredo You have had the coolant sensor replaced but it still tells you that the coolant level is low does the computer need to be reset If so how is it done.?

There are two separate sensors that play here. the "coolant temperature sensor" and "coolant LEVEL sensor". I suggest confirming which of these was replaced, as it is very common for them to be confused. likely you will find the coolant sensor that was replaced was the one on the engine (temperature); The LEVEL sensor is mounted either in the coolant resivoir or in the radiator. Probably just need the proper sensor replaced.

How do you reset the low coolant light on a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue?

There is no reset button or wsitch Check overflow tank under the hood and if low add coolant. If the coolant level is ok it may be the sensor on the bottom of tank is dirty with sluge. This sensor is the one which gives the low coolant indication. Remove tank and flush it out several times with clean water and re-install, refill tank with coolant to proper level.AnswerIt should go off when you fill up the coolant. If not, you may have a bad sensor, or possibly need to have it reset. Autozone can reset the diagnostic controller (DBM-II) for free while you wait. Hopefully there is no bigger problem that that. Answera. add more coolant b. if the light remains on, check the low coolant sensor and the connector that goes to it. It's usually on the side of the radiator or the bottom of the overflow tank.AnswerNo, there isn't a "reset" function for the low coolant level. The sensor (acts as a switch) will shut off the low coolant level warning light on the instrument cluster once you've filled up the coolant reservoir to the proper level. The coolant level sensor for this vehicle is located in the coolant reservoir (NOT THE RADIATOR). Keep in mind however, these sensors do go bad. So, just swap out the sensor? Not on this vehicle; the sensor isn't sold a a separate unit (darn it). You must purchase a new coolant reservoir, which includes a built in sensor. Multiple internet suppliers sell these reservoirs for $70 (including shipping).A correction to someone else's post: no, a diagnostic scanner (OBD-II) will not "reset" this warning light. So don't impose on Auto Zone on this one.

How do i reset a low coolant light that's on 2002 grand am?

Reset the light by cycling the key from the on position to the off position and back to the on position. If, however, the sensor still reports a low coolant level your light will come back on immediately. It is a good idea to first verify that the coolant tank is full and then gently tap the bottle with a screwdriver handle or similar object to free up stuck sensor. If the sensor is badly stuck it may be necessary to replace the tank. It is very common for the sensor to become stuck after coolant contamination by oil or from normal supplemental sealer additive being incorrectly installed.

Where does the coolant temp sensor wire come from in a 1996 ford ranger 4.0 l engine?

The coolant temp sensor wire comes from the firewall area. An easy way to make the temp sensor work if you can not find it is to connect the sensor directly to the battery. The sensor uses wireless technology to send its data. It might take an hour or more of driving for the sensor to reset before it starts sending data to the computer. .

you can't reset it, fill your coolant up full, both rad and overflow. the light will go out. if it is still on when everything is full, then your coolant sensor is broken or unplugged. if you light goes off then comes on again and your coolant is low, then you have a leak. if you have a 3400 engine in your lumina common leaks are intake gaskets, waterpumps, and head gaskets.
