In the radiator there is a sensor about 1/3rd of the way down from the top with 1 wire connected to it. When the sensor goes bad the low coolant light stays on. On our GM products replacing the sensor in the radiator turns the light off. The wire from the sensor to the dash light could have a bare spot in it and be touching metal witch would turn it on but I have never seen that yet. It would pay to check this also.

Check your coolant sensor for built up sludge, or the sensor may need replacement.

Add coolant to the reservoir. If the low coolant light still stays on, replace the low coolant sensor.

If it is the low coolant light, it may mean your coolant is low. If it is not low, it may be the low coolant light sensor malfunctioning.

Reservoir light? You mean low coolant light. Low coolant level means the reservoir is low of coolant.

Coolant is low or a sensor malfunction.

Probably low on coolant. Have coolant system checked for leaks.

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.

There is no way to reset the light. If the light is on, then either the coolant is low, the float is stuck or the sensor is bad.

Low coolant in coolant recovery tank or radiator or defective sensor

the sensor could be dirty. clean off the accumulated crud with a toothbrush and if the low coolant light still remains on then the sensor will need to be replaced.

the low coolant light is only for radiater coolant,does not have anything to do with fuel pump!!

Either your coolant is actually low or you have a coolant sensor bad.

the coolant level sensor is probably stuck it is on the bottom of coolant resivior most times all it takes is a tap with the handle end of the screwdriver on the side of the res where sensor is

thermostat sticking or low oil or low coolant

Low coolant would be because the coolant is low or the sensor has failed, Check engine light would be because the computer has detected a problem and set a code.

User Avatar

Either the coolant reservoir is low on coolant or the coolant level sensor is NG.

User Avatar

Check your coolant first, if it's not low then replace coolant level sensor

Could be,low on coolant, faulty low coolant sensor, disconnected or damaged low coolant sensor wiring,
