The float switch in the coolant tank is either stuck or defective , they are cheap and easy to replace, just follow the wires that are attached to the coolant tank, and youv'e found the float switch.

    I will come back to this solution after I have looked at my coolant tank. The Ford dealer indicated that this was an expensive problem to fix and that they would have to order the parts. I appreciate this prompt answer to my request and will return to let him/her know what I find.

Low coolant level light on


Check that the wiring and terminals to the sender unit are not broken or dirty. If they are good maybe the sender unit it self is not working.

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

I have a 2000 silhouette. the coolant level low light keeps coming on even though coolant has been added. after about 10 minutes of idling the temp rises to just below h.but temp is fine while driving....


Bleed the air out of the coolant system,and add more coolant,to radiator,and reservoir,and make sure the cooling fans are coming on,if the low coolant light stays on,remove the low coolant light sensor,and clean it off,it is located on passengers side in the radiator,it has a wire clip you have to remove,and dont loose it,after cleaning it,put the clip back on the sensor,and push the sensor back in the hole.

Low coolant light,low oil and check engine light


Most likely it is the sensor, it is located on the radiator near the battery, it will stay off if you unplug it, Check the fuses and relays though just to make sure, oil pressure sensor possibly but again check fuses

Low coolant warning light stays on.


Bad coolant level sensor in the tank. Look around the bottom of the reservoir and find a plug connection, unplug it and see if the light goes out. I think the tank has to be replaced dont think you get the sensor out. You could try by take the tank off and see if it will come out of tank but I dont think it will.

Are you sure the coolant is still low in the bottle. The coolant sensor thats in the bottle has a float that can stick. If it sticks the low coolant light will stay on even if the coolant level is right. Try tapping on the coolant reservoir bottle in the area where the electrical wire enters it. Not too hard. If that is the porblem the light should reset.

01 mercury sable traction control & low coolant lights stay on.


check for something stuck in the wheels and as for the coolant light get the car running and up to warm temp and start adding coolant to the reserviour bottle until it is up to hot level because there maybe a bubble in the line but also if might be a bad switch in the reservior bottle itself
