You have a coolant recovery tank with a radiator cap that is located separate from the radiator itself, I think it is on the passenger side of the car under the hood.about halfway between the grille and the windshield.
Find the tank, and remove the cap very slowly while the engine is off and the motor is cold.
It may still have high pressure, so watch out. You should see the coolant within an inch of the radiator cap inside.
If you want to see a picture of what the recovery tank looks like, pull it up on e-bay and type in your year and model of car and search e-bay motors.
Be blessed.

SOURCE: im receiving a check coolant

No the light is linked to a sensor. There is a coolent sensor that tells you that the level is low. It sounds like the sensor has gone bad. And the sensor is located in the coolent tank. If it is bad from my understanding you have to replace the whole tank. But take a paper clip with the engine off and disconnect the wire harness from the sensor and jump the wires and see if the light goes off.

Two cooling fans controlled by three relay's . If only one fan is working ,that could be a problem .
Coolant Level Sensor Description
The coolant level sensor monitors the coolant level in the cooling system and indicates if the coolant is low. This sensor is located at the base of the radiator surge tank and is not serviceable.
The IPC receives a discrete input from the engine coolant level switch. The engine coolant level switch is normally closed. When the engine coolant is low, the engine coolant level switch opens. When the IPC receives an open signal from the engine coolant level switch, the IPC displays the message on the DIC.

Why replace the radiator it's just a bad sensor. Get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle look up the water level sensor testing and replacement steps. The sensor probably cost around $30 and I doubt if it takes more than 30 minutes to replace.

No heat 97 deville-

Have your heater core backflushed. These vehicles use DexCool and they clog up terribly. The DexCool antifreeze does not mix with anything so you will need to flush the system. Hope this helps.
