Check the coolant reservior for any leak. 1. If there is leak, try to stop the leak by A). go for coolant reservior replacement from dealership or from junk yard used part dealer. B). Stop the leak by putting adequate glue (i.e. glue which could sustain high temp) over the leak area. 2. If there is NO leak, it is probably a bad sensor, a known problem according to the Mazda Parts Dept. Replace the reservoir which includes the coolant sensor. They are sold as one part.

The coolant level sensor in the reservoir is probably at fault.

Why would the low coolant light come onon a 2000 Sable?

In the engine compartment, on the left side of the engine is the coolant reservoir. In the coolant reservoir, there is a sensor at the bottom of the reservoir. This sensor is supposed to let you know when you are low on coolant, but can also become defective, and give you a "false-positive" reading. The only way to know this is to check your coolant when the low coolant light comes on. If there is a significant decrease in coolant, you may have a problem in the cooling system , but if you don't, chances are the sensor isn't working. If the sensor is the problem, you can unplug it from the coolant reservoir, by unscrewing the two screws holding the reservoir to the car's inside firewall, then tilting the back of the coolant reservoir forward until you see wiring coming from the bottom of the reservoir, which is the plug for the low coolant sensor. Unplug the sensor, and the low coolant light won't come on anymore. However, you will now have to make sure you check your coolant level in the reservoir on a regular basis.

The low coolant sending unit is integral to the coolant reservoir. I just called two dealers, they were both $117 for the reservoir(!!).

Your reservoir may be low. This will trigger the coolant light. It is often a malfunctioning sensor and nothing is actually wrong with the cooling system or coolant. It can be easily replaced. Alternatively you can leave it, but monitor your engine temperature and coolant level.

You don't. It's built into the reservoir. If it turns your low coolant light on when your coolant is not low remove the reservoir and clean it out with dish soap and water. The float sometimes gets dirty and sticks. When it's working you can hear it click when you shake the reservoir up and down

The coolant level sensor in the coolant reservoir detects the coolant level is low. The coolant system must have a leak in it somewhere. Have a trusted mechanic diagnose it soon before you do damage to the engine.

I have a 2003 that has that same problem. After dealing with this issue for a year, I finally took it to the dealer and they determined that it was the coolant cap. So they installed a brand new cap and the coolant light hasn't come on since it was installed, just over a month. Another possibility: The sensor in the coolant reservoir has been known to go bad according to Mazda Parts Dept. The sensor and reservoir and sold as one part. I replaced mine and the light went off.

Have a 2002 Saturn SL The low coolant light is on after passing block and pressure tests and had a coolant flush What could be the problem?

Check the level in the coolant reservoir. There is a line "wall" in the jug. The coolant level should be just above that line. If it is then check if your reverse lights work. They are on the same fuse. If they work, you probabaly need a reservoir as the level switch is faulty

It has one. Sometimes they get stuck on even after you add coolant. Tap on the reservoir until the light goes off. Or you could always unplug the connector at the bottle and the light will go off. That's at your own risk of course because you won't know when you're low on coolant.
