Your Body Control Module is failing. Your unit is behind the glove box up toward the top. Replacing this BCM is easy, but you'll need the dealership to adapter the unit with your car.

SOURCE: coolant light 2004 saturn ion 4 cylinder

I had the same problem. My 2004 Ion had 85000 miles on it. It was a bad sensor. The whole coolant reservoir tank needs to be replaced to fix the problem. This was covered under the extended warranty that we had. If you are doing this repair yourself, a hose clamp tool is recommended for simplicity.

SOURCE: wet under driver's side floor mat

Is there a sweet smell inside the car?Heater core leak I beleive would be on passenger side floor.Antifreeze will be sweet to the nose.Are you getting any white smoke out the tailpipe? would likely be head gasket leak.Put a piece of cardboard under the car near the radiator and under the motor to see where its leaking from .One thing Ive learned over the years is that its going somewhere.On the ground? Or out the tailpipe.
As for the floor board leak the 98 s were prone to have the defrost area in front of windshield collect water from being plugged up .Mine was passenger floorboard.Daughter resealed small oval vent (that defrosts /heats hood?) LOL .Its on pass. side under hood on cowl .I think this will take care of my problem but you may need to investigate under the dash/defrost area and drill and then install a drain line to bottom of defroster.Exit drain line to O/Side of car...lol .Also was it raining ? was car outside in rain .if so it could be this issue.Sorry so long ,hope you can make heads or tails of this.

SOURCE: 97 saturn sl2 temp light flashing and low coolant

If the temp gauge is reading normal, the lights are flashing, and the coolant level is full, the level sensor in the coolant bottle is the problem. I'm a service consultant for a Saturn dealer and I've run across this many times.

SOURCE: Coolant Loss

check for leakage just above the exhaust manifold on the drivers side of the engine
I was told by my saturn dealer that the leakage is at the oil cooler
coolant leaks onto manifold and is boiled away so it will not show on the floor of the garage.

My dashboard LOW COOLANT light came on, I had the radiatior flushed, and the light is still blinks


You should first check your coolant overflow tank to make sure there is the proper amount of coolant in it. You MUST check the coolant level when the engine is cold to get a proper reading of the level of coolant. When you open a car's coolant system to flush it is common to get air bubbles in the engine. As the engine warms up, the coolant expands and the excess goes into the overflow tank. When the engine cools, the coolant contracts and it draws coolant from the overflow tank. So, after a flush, you must check the level of the coolant the next couple of times you drive your car because it will take several expanding and contracting cycles for all of the air bubbles to be forced out of the engine. If the level is the same after checking it a couple of times, then you should open the radiator cap check the level there. It should be at the very top of the radiator. (MAKE SURE THE ENGINE IS COLD OR YOU WILL GET BURNED!!!).

If insuring the engine has the proper level of coolant doesn't correct the low coolant light, the next step would be to replace the sensor. In most engines it is just a screw-in plug with a wire on it that transmits to the low coolant gauge in the dash. Most automotive part stores should be able to look up where it is located. It is like changing a spark plug, but you may loose a little coolant out of the engine when you remove the old one, so check the coolant level after changing it.

Good Luck!

I would be grateful for advice. The red temperature guage icon on the dashboard bleeps once and then flashes constantly after I have started the car up and began moving.


There is a sensor on your overflow tank. It is telling you that the coolant level in the tank is low. Top it up and the light should go out. Hope this helps.

Service engine soon lights is on on lincoln continental 2001


Sometimes the service engine light comes on when the censor in the coolant overflow gets low. Try adding a little coolant to the overflow to the appropriate level.

Hi. i recently bought a 2000 saturn 3-door, and it didn't come with an owners manual. on the dashboard there is a warning light that has recently started coming on that i don't recognize. i'm hoping you...


Sounds like a low coolant indicator.
Is the car running hot? Check and top off coolant (Radiator fluid) but do NOT open radiator cap if the engine has run in the past hour. Most times you top off the fluid by filling seperate reservoir

Check your coolant level in the overflow bottle. Add if needed. The coolant bottle has lines where to add to when engine is cold or hot.
