the sensor is faulty. Located half way down the side of the radiator.
Low coolant in coolant recovery tank or radiator or defective sensor
Sounds like the low coolant warning light Check the coolant level
If you are talking about the low coolant light then it is just low of coolant. Add coolant to the recovery tank. If you are talking about the coolant temperature light, then the engine is overheating. You may need to have the cooling system serviced. Drain the coolant and flush the system. Install a new thermostat, and add a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water.
Either your coolant is actually low or you have a coolant sensor bad.
The coolant level switch on a 95 Achieva has a sticking problem. If you tap the coolant tank near the sensor the light will go out
Believe it or not. ADD COOLANT>
The check gage light comes on if the engine coolant temperature is too high , the oil pressure is too low , or the gas gauge is at or near empty
my battery light keeps coming on why is that, ive replace the battery and it still happening please help?
This is usually due to a faulty sensor in the coolant bottle. It could also be a bad connection. I had same thing happen to me on trip from Missouri to Wisconsin at night time. Stopped to check and nothing low It was connection at sensor Squeezed it with plyers and havent had problem again for over 5 years now
you are low on coolant.
Defective sensor? Usually in coolant recovery trank
i think it is glass
Its a bad low coolant sensor. Common on these Chevy models.
Can be improper level.
If the coolant system (radiator and reservoir) is full and the light remains on, the probe on the coolant level sensor is probably dirty. Remove it from the radiator, clean it gently with brake clean and an old toothbrush, re-install it, refill coolant system and you should be good to go.
It could be that your coolant level is low or you have other coolant system problems. Whenever the check engine light is on, use a code scanner to find out why.
check brake fluid level.
check water in plastic water box right side of engine compartment. that's where sensor is
Check the sensor located at the bottom of the reservoir.
Well, the common cause for the light coming on is the radiator is low of coolant. But I assume you have checked the coolant level and it is ok. That being the case more than likely the coolant level sensor is defective and needs replacing. Can also be the problem is in the wiring.
it looks like a little coolant jug that comes on the bottom left side of the dash
Low oil pressure of a faulty oil pressure sending unit.
are you talking about the coolant light? it could just be because your coolant reserve tank is below the minimum level. try adding coolant (only special VW G12!) and the light should go off. if it keeps happening it means you have a leak somewhere. most likely its something simple like your coolant flange. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20071119200403AAmig9M
You need to have it checked for codes. If you fix the cause of the codes the light will stay off.
might be throtle postioning sensor
