it means that your coolant sensor is bad and needs to be replaced. it can also be a bad or faulty wiring connection. make visual and manual checks and in spections on the wiring harness leading to and from the sensor which is located on the top of your water-pump houseing. the new sensor is a dealer part,and comes with a warrenty . I bought a new one and it was bad. how funny good luck.
sensor is in the plastic reserve on the float.
if it is a 96 like mine it is on the top of the coolant resovoir. it is rounnd and has an electrical connector attached to it
The coolant temperature sensor on a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee is located on the T-stat. It is on the passenger side of the Jeep.
It means your coolant sensor is bad and needs replaced.
Not sure if this helps, but the book I have on my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee says that their are 2 of these sensors, I have not had the time to look for the second one. I have the same problem.
Low coolant or bad sensor
On the coolant overflow bottle that in on the passenger side of the engine.
What type of coolant sensor? The below answer is for the coolant LEVEL sensor. The coolant TEMPERATURE sensor on my vehicle is located just next to the thermostat housing. On the front top center area of the engine just behind the radiator. Follow the coolant hoses if you have trouble. On my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee the sensor is located on the top of the plastic coolant reservoir tank. Look for a small (2-wire?) electrical connector.

The 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee IAT sensor can be found attached to the air intake hose. The IAT sensor will be near the air filter box.
Don't worry about it those screens are all faulty & blink coolant temp sensor.

its on the oil pan drivers side
It is part of the plate under the rotor inside the distributor cap.
sensor is located on coolant housing at engine front
2 wire sensor next to the upper hose on the thrmostat housing.
The engine coolant temperature sensor is the sensor that is screwed into the thermostat housing on the top front of the engine.
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.
I have a 1998 Pontiac Grand AM GT that coolant sensor went bad. So how do you change it with out breaking the coolant
Remove oil pressure sensor and install a manual gauge
It's probably not bad, all those screens flash coolant temp sensor & there is no issue. Your chasing a ghost
Check your fuse, and your coolant temp sensor. The coolant temp sensor is more than likely the problem
