SOURCE: low coolant light
In the surge tank, there is a sensor that detects the level of the coolant. It's most likely the sensor is stuck on the low position. All this sensor does is slide up and down as the coolant level goes up and down. You can tap the side of the surge tank near where the sensor plugs in and see if it will dislodge. You'll see the 2 wire plug at the bottom of the tank towards the front.

The coolant level sensor is located on the radiator. If you are looking at the engine from the front of the car it will be on the left side. There will some kind of clip holding it in the radiator. Removed the clip and pull the sensor out. You will lose coolant so try to swap it out quick or drain some of the coolant out. Once new sensor is installed, install clip to keep the sensor in place and reconnect the wires to the sensor. Crank the engine and make sure the coolant level is full. This should correct your problem.

The coolant sensor should be located near where the upper radiator hose is attached to the engine and has a wire connector on it with 2 wires. It's the only sensor near there. Then there's the sensor that'll be attached to your reservoir tank somewhere along the firewall
