My low coolant light stays on on my 02 impala but the coolant is full how do I reset it?

The coolant level sensor is located on the passenger side of the radiator, just below the bottom of the battery. If the light comes on, you'll need to fill the plastic coolant tank. But you also need to remove the radiator cap and fill the radiator itself. Only open the radiator when the engine is cold. If the radiator is full, and you are positive it's full, then the sensor needs to be replaced.

To remove the headlamp assembly...
There are two plastic tabs on top of each of the headlamp assemblies.
Pull them straight up about 3/4".

Need to locate and replace coolant sensor

If you are refering to the coolant level sensor (causes low coolant light to turn on), it is located on the radiator near the battery on the passnger side. It is on the radiator tank, just below the radiator cap and the upper connection for the transmission line. Heres a picture of the sensor on my 2002 Impala when I removed the radiator (it's the square thing in the center of the picture):
