Best Answer

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.

Where to find the coolant censor on a 1994 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo?

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.
