your coolant sensor is very sensitive i would make sure that you don't have a small leak i have seen it in a Chevy pick up and the guy who owned it brought it in to the dealership three times to fix the same problem so be careful

The low coolant sensor is etiher plugded, broken, or your coolant is actually low. Check the radiator and resivor tank to see if they are full. If they are and the light is on, drain the coolant. Be careful not to break the plastic petcock. The sensor is located next to the battery on the right side of the car. Remove the battery and pull the sensor out. Clean it or replace it. then put everything back together.

You may need to add fluid to your cooling system. These lights are programed to alert you if the levels are low.

Could be the sensor that has gone bad if the coolant level is correct. Find a trustworthy mechanic to check that out.

There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.

Means your radiator (coolant) level is low (below the sensor in the tank--you can see it). Just keep the coolant above that and you'll be good.

That answer would depend on the meaning of the red light, i.e. the labelnext to it, or the message it's designed to convey when it illuminates.

When you want to keep light out. Ex: Curtains to keep out light when you sleep.

This is the low coolant light. It will go off for no reason on most '99-'00 vehicles if the level drops into the 'good' range, you need to keep the coolant topped off over the MAX line by about 1" to keep the light off. Don't drive with the low coolant light on thinking everything will be fine, it may have gone off when it was at MAX, but nothing will tell you if you're running low after that.

The check gauges light comes on when one of the guages is out side of the safe zone. It could be battery voltage, oil pressure, engine temp....

You can reset the 2001 Buick Century low coolant warning light by removing the fuse. Keep the fuse out for 10 seconds, then replace it to its original spot.

The check engine light stays on when the computer detects an emissions related failure.

Some have "fake theft" lights. If the light is blinking red near the radio then it is a fake.
