No there is not, but the coolant level sensor is on the side of the radiator to the top on the passenger side, will have two wire's going to it, most auto part will stock this part, if you want till you replace it, you can unplug it and the light will go off, hope this was very helpful.

No, it should go off by itself. Give it a little time or maybe tap on the reservoir.

The CHECK COOLANT indicator illuminates when the coolant level is low in the coolant recovery reservoir. The low coolant level switch is probably in or on the coolant reservoir !

Why is the low coolant light flashing?


The low coolant light is operated by a level sensor located in the coolant reservoir itself. If the low coolant light is on and the coolant level is full then wither the sensor is unplugged or the sensor is bad.

You can reset the cel with the scanner-or disconnect the negative battery cable and leave it off for about 5 minutes-if it comes back on, you do have a problem and the code you get needs to be investigated. A low coolant sensor should not set a check engine light, what was the actual code (the number)?

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.

My car turns the light low coolant and when i turn it on it comes like smoke. i put antifreese again. but it keeps showing the ligth low coolant


I dont remember the lumina having a low coolant light.

It does have a low washer fluid light though.

You can see if you coolant overflow bottle is full. If it isnt, fill it to the hot or cold mark on the side.

Fill your windshield fluid too and see if the light goes out.

Good luck and be safe!

How do you reset the low radiator fluid light on the dash? Fluid res. was low. I re filled but lite won't go out.


There is no reset button.When you fill it up it should just go out.What happens is the sensor is at the bottom of the fill bottle and all the dirt and junk is at the bottom.Sometimes the sensor is on the radiator.It is directly below filler neck of the radiator.Drain enough coolant to lower the level of the radiator and remove the metal retainer from the sensor.Remove the sensor and install a new one in.Refill the radiator.The light should be off.Make sure the vehicle is cooled down when working on the cooling system.

I need sensors (master reset)


Open the DIS [Driver Information System] with the car running. The screen should flash all the annoying messages. Press the "Fuel" button repeatedly until the messages clear and it displays your fuel used. The press the Eng button until it shows your Oil Life, then hold down the reset button for 10 seconds. Then press Eng again till it shows your Transmission Fluid Life, and hold down the reset button for 10 seconds. As for the coolant indicator, make sure the reservoir is filled to the appropriate level. If you still get the Low Coolant message, check to make sure the coolant level sensor is plugged in (its on the reservoir) and if it is, then it may need replaced or cleaned.

Low Coolant light stays on


Check you coolant resevoir. The low coolant switch is located in the resevoir so if it is low on coolant there, the light will come on. If it is full, it could be that the switch is stuck due to gunk build up in the resevoir. Hope this helps you out
