If so, top left would be coolant temperature warning light.

What is the coolant temp gauge reading?

I would suspect faulty coolant temp sensor.
Also check if your coolant reservoir sensor (plugged into the bottom of you coolant tank) is plugged in (I often forget to plug it back in; the retainer also easily breaks and the plug can slip out).

I have a '96 jeep cherokee xj, although there is plenty of water in the system, the coolant warning light stays on. Any ideas?

Look in the overflow reservoir, and some designs use low brake fluid indication using the same bulb, (which I really do not understand ...!) check both of those areas.
