Most probably is a leak somewhere, the sensor in the reservoir picks up when the level is low as to prevent engine damage. I would get it checked out. when repairing the water leak they should automaticly replace the coolant so i would just top it up with normal tap water till then. be carefull the water can burn you, so only open the bottle once the car is cold.

Where is the coolant system


It's probably telling you that coolant (water & Antifreeze) is low. Container is at back of engine on firewall - typically next to the Brake master cylinder.

Refill up to the COLD mark when the engine is cold with 50/50 water and antifreeze. Close cap tight.

Engine light won't go off have topped up coolent


Was it the check engine light or the Low Coolant error message?

If the former, likely an emissions problem - coolant is unlikely to solve that.

Have the OBD codes read at an auto parts store, proceed accordingly.

The Low Coolant light sometimes takes some time to reset.

You did refill / recheck it with the engine COLD, didn't you?

Coolant level sensor is bad do I have to replace the whole overflow reservoir


You should only have to replace coolant overflow reservoir if coolant is leaking from reservoir. Sensor should be sold separately.

Ok, you most likely need to replace the coolant level sensor. It sounds like it out. If that doesn't fix it let me know.

Bad coolant level sensor on reservoir, stalling may be a torque converter lockup issue.

Just had the water pump and serpentine belt fixed and now my "low coolant" light just came on. what does this mean?


Hi:
That warning light comes on when the level of coolant in the plastic reservoir tank becomes low. It is possible that the tank just needs topped off after the work on your car was performed. Basically, check the coolant and fill as needed, then keep an eye on your level to make sure there are no leaks on your vehicle since it was worked on.

I need sensors (master reset)


Open the DIS [Driver Information System] with the car running. The screen should flash all the annoying messages. Press the "Fuel" button repeatedly until the messages clear and it displays your fuel used. The press the Eng button until it shows your Oil Life, then hold down the reset button for 10 seconds. Then press Eng again till it shows your Transmission Fluid Life, and hold down the reset button for 10 seconds. As for the coolant indicator, make sure the reservoir is filled to the appropriate level. If you still get the Low Coolant message, check to make sure the coolant level sensor is plugged in (its on the reservoir) and if it is, then it may need replaced or cleaned.

Had same problem, in the boot right hand side, behind the removable panel there is :
1 - a hydraulic reservoir which must be at correct level.
2 - a black box (stc) this controls the roof system,
switch ignition off then pull the 2 connectors off for 30sec then reconnect.
This worked and hope this resolves your problem
