    J 33431-B costs $149 on ebay, cheaper to just buy another IP cluster and install it. Otherwise the wiring has to be replaced, so check it out.

    CKT 817 is 0.35 DK GRN/WHT.

  • robert2010 Oct 25, 2009

    I mean the wiring may have to be replaced. If a new IP cluster doesn't work then replace wiring.

SOURCE: how to replace a coolant level sensor, 2000 buick century

The coolant level sensor is located on the radiator. If you are looking at the engine from the front of the car it will be on the left side. There will some kind of clip holding it in the radiator. Removed the clip and pull the sensor out. You will lose coolant so try to swap it out quick or drain some of the coolant out. Once new sensor is installed, install clip to keep the sensor in place and reconnect the wires to the sensor. Crank the engine and make sure the coolant level is full. This should correct your problem.
