The reed switch may be stuck. My 98 Grand Am coolant tank ran dry last week when my lower intake manifold gasket started to leak. Fixed the leak and refilled the tank only to see the coolant light still on. Tapped the switch/sensor on the bottom OS the tank with a rubber mallet so the magnetic float could loosen up and float back up. Sure enough, turned on the ignition and light was out.

I have a 2002 alero how do you reset, the coolant light is always on. Thanks, Alero owner

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.

there is no reset you have replace the low coolant sensor and flush cooling system and use dexcool coolant.

you may need to replace the sensor for the coolant, there should be a wire connected to it.

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.

It's a warning sign that you are low on coolant.

Assuming that you are referring to the low air warning for the tires, it should reset itself after the correct tire pressure is returned to the low tire. If it does not reset then you may have a bad sensor in the wheel.

You are low on coolant or the low coolant sensor/wiring/connection is bad.

You should be able to reset the low coolant light by the parking light switch 3 times on and off somewhat quickly should do it

its useful to add fluid to the radiator and itll reset itself ,,,,,,,,, check coolant temp sensor.

There isn't one; If the coolant level is ok, and the warning light still comes on, you have a defective sensor that needs to be replaced. It is located on the passenger side of the radiator with the wires running back towards the engine. Usually.

how do you reset the low tire pressure warning light on a 2009 camry

Check your overflow bottle to make sure there is adequate coolant in there. If there is, the coolant level sensor is faulty and must be replaced.

If the low coolant message is on and you are certain that the coolant level is up, then you probably have a faulty sensor or sensor connector. The low coolant indicator should turn itself off as soon as the coolant is filled.

The low coolant level sensor is faulty. If you check ebay, there is a repair service. Pez

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.

go to auto zone they will do it for you
