This is a coolant level warning light,and lets you know when the colant level is low,If you added fluid to the radiator and the coolant reservior and the light on then there is a fault with the senor its self.
the sensor will be located ether on the coolant reservior or the side of the radiator.
Check the side of the reservior to se if there is a sensor with some wires going to it,if so try unpluging the sensor and see if the light gos out,If its not there it will be on the end of one side of the radiator tank,it will be a 2inch square box with some wires going to it,Fallow the same thing- unplug wires and see if light gos out.
If the light gos out you will need to replace the sensor,or just leave unpluged and keep a watch on the coolant level.

I'm trying to find the radiator on a 2001 mazda 626. Could you find a picture of what I'm looking for?

  • On this car the radiator is hard to see from the top accept for the fill spout. In the picture I put up you will see two red arrows. those arrows point to a shield where the radiator is located underneath. You can look, from behind the shield, down and see the radiator and two fans on the back of the radiator.

I had a red square with an arrow pointing down and lines that looked like waves on my 2000 alero. what is this?

When your car is cold, check your radiator or radiator overflow to see if you are low on fluid. I believe that is what that light means.

For a good measure I would check all of your fluids.

A warning light came on that is a box with a notch on top with an arrow pointing down and a squiggly line near the bottom of the box. Does this indicate some type of low fluid?

that i believe is the low radiator fluid. there is a little black box attached to the radiator just below the fill neck, maybe it got unplugged also.

What does the low light indicator mean

this symbol usually indicates that the radiator is low on coolant. on some cars a similar light means low washer fluid. so check both of them.

I have a light on in the dash its a square with an arrow pointing down to fluid?

I believe it's your coolant light. Your coolant may be low. Check both your reservoir tank and your radiator to make sure it's full.
