This is a COMMON Problem that GM had with the Level Sensor Curciut, And they Never Correctly Addressed it. I Have on ocations Replaced the Sensor and that Corrected the Problem, BUT Other times the Light STAYS ON No matter What, I have tracked the Wires and all I Have Ever Found was the Plug Being FAULTY. So if A NEW Coolant LEVEL SENSOR Does NOT Turn off the Light, try Replacing the PLUG Itself.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
If you have overheating problem, it can lead to multiple
issues. You may be running on low coolant that's why the vehicle overheats. If
that's the case, please add coolant and make sure that it sits on the right
level, too much coolant can cause overheating too for coolant will overflow.
The vehicle may have a faulty or worn out radiator blower
motor that's why it overheats. If that's the case then you will need a blower
motor replacement to resolve the issue.
If the radiator is clogged with dirt and rusts this issue
occurs too. The coolant doesn't flow normally on the cooling system if it's
clogged. If that's the case, I strongly suggest that you have the radiator
flushed to drain out dirt and rusts. If you think that the radiator served you
enough then it's better to have it replaced.
Please do check the radiator hoses, If you have worn out
hoses it can cause coolant leakage which can result to overheating. A tiny hole
is good enough for the vehicle to overheat.
A faulty thermostat sensor can cause the issue too. If you
have worn out thermostat, the fan may not trigger that's why the fan won't work
when under stressed conditions. A blown radiator blower fuse can cause this
issue too so I suggest that you check the radiator blower fuse and replace it
Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Overheating can seriously damage a car's engine if left unchecked. Although overheating simply means that a car's engine temperature exceeds normal operating temperatures, the causes of overheating are varied. What follows is a brief list of some of the most common causes of engine overheating.
