Warns you when the coolant level is low in the reservoir. I own a 98 Venture and had the low coolant warning light come on. Come to find out that most V6 engins have a potiential lower intake manifold proble which in time will have to be replaced. Dealer cost without warrenty.....$1200-$2500.

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.

There is a coolant level sensor in the bottom of the coolant tank. If the tank has enough coolant, then the sensor is bad. You can buy a new tank for about $50 (Rockauto.com or Autozone) and replace it in an hour or so. Or just disconnect the cable from the sensor and check your coolant level on a regular basis.
