It means that you either have a wire loose on the reservor or need to add some coolant to it. It should be located on the right front fender. There is a wire plug on the bottom, if it is loose it will show that you need some coolant. Yeah, a water down symbol would probably indicate low coolant? Anyway, gotta love the days when GM used lights that actually said "coolant low" instead of stupid symbols.
