These are not really sensors but switches. The low coolant one if the tank is full is defective it is located in the coolant recovery tank. The door has a defective door ajar switch in one or more of the four doors, have a dealer scan the systems control module for id of which sensor it is, to replace them requires the door be taken apart a very time consuming job if you have to remove all 4 door panels.

    The turn signal flasher is electronic and it is defective based on my experiences as a Ford dealer technician.

SOURCE: Emergency Flashers totally out, Rear lights malfunctioning

Check the ground on the passenger side rear lights, it's likely bad. As for the hazards, sounds like a bad flasher or fuse.

SOURCE: dash lights-turn signal and rear lights

Access your fuse box and check the fuse labled- rear tail lgts,turn sgns, that fuse is blown, replace the fuse with the same value fuse, while your under there, on the fuse box or next to it you'll find 2 round plug in components, about the size of a Marshmellow, one of these is your flasher unit and the other is for your turn signals, replace both of these, even though one may work, it's just good sense to replace both, that shoud fix your rear lighting problem. good luck.....

SOURCE: Ford Taurus SE 1999. Dome Light - Door Ajar indicator problem.

i must say that i feel your pain with this,, my door ajar light does the same thing but my dome light doesn't come on when the doors are open, i have to flick the switch on the dome light to make it come on. In my opion and i stress my opion it saounds like a issue with the body controller, im not sure what ford calls it but it controls all the body functions, i dont think the low coolant light is connected to the body contoller but i dont know this for sure, i think that light is controlled bny the engine ecm. some times a dealer can connect to the body controller and see if there are any fault codes for circuits that it controls and or monitors, also they can reflash or update the configeration and or calibration level cause ford release's fixes for issues all the time, same theory works for any control module on a vehicle. i dont think any of the auto parts stores have the right program to connect to bofy controlers but i could be wrong, worth looking into. i only put up with mine cause i use it as a beater, if you are worried about your dome light staying on and drianing your battery then you could pull out or disconnect the dome lights for the time being, its not a fix but just a band-aid.

The little red water level gauge stays on


The red square shaped warning dash light is an image of a crudely drawn radiator indicating that you are low on coolant. Topping up your coolant bottle reservoir located on the passenger side above the wheel should clear up your issue. If your coolant level is full and is still indicating low coolant via dash warning light, you could possibly have a sensor out in the radiator or air bubbles in your coolant lines that need to be bled out.

Check engine light come on car not running hot plenty of coolant in it guy at auto zone coolant might be low or senor could be going out.


Hello, If the man at Autozone used a scanner for your car, then the problem was identified and you need to follow up on the possible repairs.

The low coolant level can be temporarily fixed by adding coolant to the proper reservoir under the hood. You would need to add the proper Antifreeze to the car and see if the "check light" stays off after the man scans and clears the onboard computer. You could also instead disconnect the NEG Battery cable for 10 minutes to allow the car to Reset itself. The reason I indicated a temporary cure by adding more coolant is that the original coolant went somewhere. If the coolant level goes down again you need to have a Radiator place check your system for leaks. The coolant level can change when the engine heats up so you would need to look at the reservoir after the engine is hot and while it is running.

The car does also have water sensors and the autoparts guy was correct if the scanner tool he used indicated the sensor was going bad. The sensor is reasonably priced, there can be 2 in the car and they work independent of each other. One sensor operates the dash guage and the other sensor operates the engine controls including when the cooling fans come on for the engine. The sensors are small, about the size of your Thumb's first joint.

I hope my solution is very helpful in explaining what you need to do.

Coolant light is flash on dash, coolent levle fine, were is the indackter or switch at


The low coolant sensor for the 3800 V-6 is on the passenger side of the radiator...below the radiator cap, you can disconnect the plug to be sure that is the problem...sometimes tapping on the switch will release the sensor...you can leave unplugged for tests for a few days, but not recommended to leave disconnected eliminating this safety reading...:)

Water standing on passagers side, drove about 50 miles low coolant light came on running fine and heater seems to be working


The problem is that the heater core has started to leak. The 'water' on the passenger side floor is actually coolant that is leaking from the heater core (hence the low coolant light).

I have a 2000 silhouette. the coolant level low light keeps coming on even though coolant has been added. after about 10 minutes of idling the temp rises to just below h.but temp is fine while driving....


Bleed the air out of the coolant system,and add more coolant,to radiator,and reservoir,and make sure the cooling fans are coming on,if the low coolant light stays on,remove the low coolant light sensor,and clean it off,it is located on passengers side in the radiator,it has a wire clip you have to remove,and dont loose it,after cleaning it,put the clip back on the sensor,and push the sensor back in the hole.

Where to add coolant for radiator on a 95 vw jetta?


Add Coolant to spherical reservoir at right rear of engine compartment as viewed from front. If it is low the coolant gauge flashing light will warn you of a low condition.

MY CONTINUES TO HAVE LOW COOLANT LIGHT ON, WE'VE PUT COOLANT TO LEVEL AND THIS CONTINUES


Most likely the coolant level sensor needs to be replaced. The sensor would be located on the coolant reservoir tank. Look for the two wires going to the tank. Unplug it and the coolant light should turn OFF. If the light turn OFF, then the senor needs to be replaced.

Crank senor


It mounts next to the harmonic balancer on the passenger side of motor,Look under car on the passenger side and the front pulley on the crankshaft,you will see a star or piece with teeth at the back of the crankshaft pulley,you should then see the sensor mounter close to this.This is what the sensor is actually reading is the teeth.

Low coolant light


I have a 97 Cutlass. The low coolant light is on as well. After talking to some of my mechanic buddy's this is a know problem with this model of vehicle (Cutlass/Malibu). You can either replace the coolant reservoir with the sensor or just ignore the problem as even with replacing the parts it is likely to come back on.

Hope this helps
