2000 vw beetle 2.0 L, low level coolant light...engine mil code 1256


not the pump but air in the system or a broken wire to the coolant level sensor
that sensor at the top of the radiator tank has to be completely immersed in coolant or the circuit is broken and the light comes on
same effect id the wire to that sensor is broken in the insulation

Coolant indicator light will not shut off even after adding coolant 2003 malibu


If the system is indeed full of coolant then the coolant sensor may be faulty or dirty. I've replaced several of these for this problem. If the coolant is dirty or hasn't been changed for some time then that will contribute to the sensor problem so it may be a good idea to flush the cooling system and install new/clean coolant at the same time to avoid future problems. Good luck, hope this helps!

'low coolant light' flashes all the time and then 'service engine soon'


These problems may or may not be related. The Check coolant light means that the coolant level in your radiator is low. If you have checked it and it is not low, then the sensor is most likely defective. The low coolant sensor will not turn the Check Engine light on - even if the coolant really is low. There are many things that can cause the Check Engine light to come on. You will have to scan your Engine Computer to find out why it has been turning the light on.

I did have a problem on one of these cars one time where the Check Engine light was coming on and there were several codes for the Throttle Position Sensor(TPS) and the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor and the car ran really bad. The Check Coolant light was also on. After checking it out I found that the coolant level sensor was shorting out the 5 volt reference circuit (VREF) from the computer and causing the whole problem. Replacing the coolant level sensor fixed the car.

When starting the engine the coolant light comes on but the coolant level is where it should be. The temperature gauge is working properly. Is there a reset for the light after adding coolant?


as i know of there are no resets for the cooland light most of the time you can take something soft and the container where the antifreeze goes hit it a couple of time just enough to jar it a little and the light will go off if that doesnt work then your sensor inside the container is bad in which case you will have to replace it, One of these suggestions should turn out the light. hope this helped.

Low coolant light came on 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette, went out a couple minutes later without adding any coolant. Adding a little anyway after light went out. Now about 1 1/2 weeks later light came on...


If its not low on coolant and the light continues to come on it is the low coolant sensor in the radiator. This sensor is in the plastic side of the radiator and just pops off. These sensors are always a problem and don't always require replacement of the sensor. What happens -especially if you are using red DEX-COOL coolant is that the coolant gets hard and crusty inside the sensor and wont allow the coolant to enter and make contact with the sensor. Simply take the sensor off and blow compressed air or water pressure in it to free it of debris. Easy fix-hope this helps!
