Low water light comes on and water is full


The sensor that is used to trigger this light can become corroded or even inoperable due to using water instead of coolant. Check the connections and rinse off the sensor with water. You may have to replace it.

LOW WATER LIGHT


I am assuming you are talking about the washer fluid.
If the tank is full and the light is on the sending unit has failed.
Same thing would be true for the coolant if it has a low coolant light and the radiator is full.

My low coolant light keeps coming, i replace the Thermostat on yesterday but got in car this morning and light came right back on put water in and drove to work when i got to work cut car off look under...


Low coolant doesnt have anything to do with the thermostat. If the coolant bottle was over filled, it will push out, it needs some air space. only fill it to the full line. If the low coolant light is on, but its not really low, the sensor may be bad. Be sure to use the correct coolant DEXCOOL.

1999 Olds Alero. Low coolant light comes on and stays on even though its full. Starts running hot to the 3/4 mark. When the heater is turned on it cools off. Could this be the thermostat or the water pump.


TAKE RADIATOR CAP OFF WITH ENGINE COLD AND CHECK WATER ..MAKE SURE RADIATOR NOT BLOCKED,,PLASTIC BAG ETC. THIS SOUNDS LIKE LOW WATER OR RADIATOR ..STOPPED UP INSIDE ..IF YOU HAVE GOOD HEAT IT'S FULL OF WATER. REPLACE T STAT B4 RADIATOR..IT'S CHEAPER. ALSO CHECK FOR RADIATOR COOLING FAN OPPERATION..I,M RULING OUT THE WATER PUMP.

Engine sounded noisy & scratchy when i drove to school oil light on. Got back to car after 10 mins everything came on (radio etc) but when i went to turn it over everything just cut out like dead...


after the vehicle cooled completely and all the oil drained down it showed half full? that would mean it was anywhere from 2 to 2.5 quarts low? unless you mean that it showed halfway up the full / safe area on the dipstick.

the oil light being on usually means low oil or low oil pressure, if the vehicle still doesn't try to start after it is completely cool then you might have a locked up engine or multiple problems, check the oil again now that it has been sitting awhile look for water in the oil also check for oil in the water.

check battery connections again, make sure they are tight, if lights and such work then try to get a jump from someone. even new batteries can go bad

I would definitely be worried about that oil light though.

good luck and I hope this helps.
