perhaps you have a bad coolant level sensor?
Either do to a coolant leak or a failed coolant level sensor.
Coolant level low or level sensor malfunction.Coolant level low or level sensor malfunction.
On the side of the radiator, by the filler neck? This is the only low coolant sensor I know of. *Ditto here; There is only one for temp and another for coolant level. Each sets off a different warning light on the dash.
It is located three to six inches down on the passager side of the raditator... below the raditator cap. hope this helps...
On a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix the oil level sensor is located on the Oil Pan directly underneath the Air Condition Compressor.
The coolant level sensor in the coolant reservoir detects the coolant level is low. The coolant system must have a leak in it somewhere. Have a trusted mechanic diagnose it soon before you do damage to the engine.
On my 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix, the coolant level sensor in the radiator near the battery would get gummed up. You can lower the coolant level in the radiator, remove the battery, and remove the sensor. Clean it and replace the coolant. I was having to do this yearly. One common problem on these Pontiacs is a leaking plastic lower intake manifold gasket set. A small amount of oil can contaminate the coolant and lead to this build up on the sensor and thus the coolant light illuminated. I changed the l.i.m. gaskets on my car with the improved all aluminum replacement gasket set. In my opinion, this is a very good engine but why GM went with these plastic gaskets is beyond me!!

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.
The "Low Coolant Sensor" on a 1997 Pontiac Montana is located appro 6" below the radiator cap which is on the left as your facing the engine. The sensor measures the fluid level in the radiator itself and is prone to giving false alarms when it gets dirty.
it is located on the rear of the power steering unit next to the two coolant hoses on the plastic water housing
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.
No, the electric cooling fans turn on and off by a signal from the coolant temp sensor. The coolant level sensor only illuminates the low coolant light when you are low on coolant.
there is a sensor in the bottom of the coolant bottle, change this and you should be o.k. tap the sensor with a screw driver it will go out uts just stuck
Either the coolant sensor has failed or there is a bad connector somewhere or the dashboard sensor circuit has failed.
Only if the sensor is malfunctioning.
99 Grand Prix Coolant Sensor InfoThe coolant level sensor on this car in called a "coolant level indicator module" and is a small square box attached to the RH (pass.)side of the rad,engine side(rear)of the side tank,about 1/2 way down.The wiring plugs in from the bottom. It is held in by a snap clip and seals with an o-ring.Submitted by Andrew at Zippy's Auto in Edmonton Alberta Canada
Check the coolant level in the reservoir. If that's up and the vehicle isn't overheating, you probably have a bad sensor.
Check the engine coolant... Is it full? yes coolant level is full
The coolant level sensor is on the bottom of the coolant reservoir located on the passenger side fender well.
It is in the passenger side coolant tank on the radiator. If the light is on and the coolant is at the proper level then the sensor is defective. To replace it you will have to drain the radiator. Disconnect the wire and remove the clip and remove the sensor.
Either the coolant level is low in the recovery tank or the sensor is defective or has a loose connection. actually most of the time it's the floating magnet in the tank. the magnet goes up and down with the coolant level. If your coolant level is where it should be and it's not overheating then it's something to do with a sensor. but before you run out and buy a new one there a little trick you can do. loosen the tank (it's only one screw that holds it in) and give it a good shake for about 10 seconds. what happens is the floating magnet will get stuck making contact with the sensor and trick it into thinking the coolant is low. 90% of the time this is the problem!!
The 2004 Chevrolet Malibu coolant sensor float is located in the radiator. The coolant sensor float replace the level of coolant to the instrument panel.
