The low coolant light keeps going off have had the radiator replaced and it doesn't get hot but the low coolant light still goes off


There is a switch (sensor) that is installed in the radiator tank, partway down one side that monitors coolant level. It would not be included with a new radiator, so if it was not replaced when the radiator was done, chances are that the sensor was just moved from one to the other. The sensor is probably going bad. You were right about the A/C. It has nothing to do with this issue. It is not a critical sensor, but light can be annoying. If you replace it, chances are your problem will go away. If you wish, you can disconnect the electrical cable from the sensor. If the low coolant light is then lit, you can ground the sensor cable to make it go out. If it goes out with the cable removed, then you can just tie it back. Just remember, though, that you no longer have a low coolant detection capability. Regular checks of the coolant level would be required, although this should be normal procedure anyway.

LOW COOLANT LIGHT


Just had a go-round with same problem in an 87 Cavalier. Had to take off radiator cap, add coolant, squeeze bottom radiator hose. After no more bubbles, add coolant, squeeze top radiator hose. Squeeze bottom again. Add coolant as needed. The air was because it was run low when the radiator cap gasket failed and coolant boiled out. Never got the overheat notice on digital dash or idiot light. Make sure you have a new radiator cap.

You could have a pin hole in your hose or in your radiator.

Boiling radiator coolant


This can be caused by the breakdown of the newer long life coolants, the early formulations broke down and do this exactly as you described, have the tank cleaned and flush the system and refill with the newer coolant that doesn't break down and turn to goo.

My coolant level/radiator light will not turn off & I have sufficient coolant in it.No other lights/check engine light are on either.


You may have a bad/dirty level sensor. It should be in the pass side radiator tank or in the overflow tank or it may just be disconnected

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):
