Code B0936 what is it


b0936 - When engine coolant is at the proper level, the low coolant switch is closed. When in this condition, battery voltage is applied to the low coolant 1478 input of the body control module (BCM).
When coolant is below the proper level, the coolant switch opens. Because no voltage is applied to circuit 1478, the BCM responds by sending a serial data message to the instrument panel cluster to turn On the low coolant light.
The BCM has an internal timer, which will not turn On the low coolant telltale unless the coolant level is low for greater than 30 seconds. The timer avoids coolant "sloshing" falsely turning On the light.
B0936 Coolant level sensor circuit malfunction .
Check for poor connection at BCM. Inspect harness connector for backed out terminals, improper terminal mating, broken connector locks, improperly formed or damaged terminals and poor terminal to wire connection (terminal crimped over wire insulation and not conductors).


?€¢
Inspect wiring harness for damage. Check for broken or chafed insulation.


?€¢
Check for poor connection at the low coolant switch.


?€¢
If fault is suspected to be intermittent, wiggling harness wiring may help in locating fault.

Why is my1997 chevy lumina low coolant light is on and the radiator is full of coolant ?


In most newer chevys, the coolant reservoir is part of the pressurized system. Rather than just holding overflow coolant and relying on the radiator pressure cap to draw from and expel to the reservoir, it is an active part of the cooling system. On these systems, there is a coolant level switch in the reservoir. This will activate if the level in the reservoir gets below a certain point. So it is possible to have a full radiator and still get a low coolant light. Be advised that as the reservoir ages and get stained, it is not uncommon for the low coolant sensor to give false indications of low coolant.

Can low coolant in car lock up your engine


Low coolant will cause overheating- damage to your engine- depending on how low it actually is. If the coolant is less than four years old you could just add coolant (you can buy premixed at the auto parts store) to the proper level. More than four years old and your coolant should be replaced; and the system flushed in the process. If you are just adding coolant, be sure you are using the proper coolant for your car.

Coolant level low light comes on and coolant level is not low in reserve tank or radiator.


There is a TSB for this problem. Here it is.


Bulletin No.: 04-06-02-007

Date: August 11, 2004

TECHNICAL

Subject:
Low Engine Coolant Level Indicator Always On (Diagnose Low Coolant Level System Operation/Check Sensor for Oil Contamination)

Models:
2000-2002 Buick Century, Regal
2000-2001 Chevrolet Lumina
2000-2002 Chevrolet Impala, Monte Carlo
2000-2002 Pontiac Grand Prix
2000-2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue


Condition

Some customers may comment that the low engine coolant level indicator is always illuminated.


Cause

The cause of this condition may be due to engine oil contaminating the coolant. Possible sources of oil contamination are internal engine leaks, improper service procedures, or the addition of some types of anti-leak additives to the cooling system. Once in the coolant, the oil leaves deposits on the level sensor creating an insulating film. This film results in a false activation of the coolant level indicator.


Correction

Diagnose low coolant level system operation and check the sensor for oil contamination using the procedure listed below.


Important: No coolant supplements should be used in GM cooling systems, other than what is approved and recommended by GM. The use of "aftermarket" over-the-counter sealing and cooling supplements may affect the operation of the low coolant level sensor. Discoloration of the coolant recovery bottle is normal and does not necessarily indicate that coolant contamination is present. Flush cooling system only when instructed by this bulletin.

1. Verify that the coolant is at proper level in the radiator and the coolant recovery bottle. If the coolant is low, add proper amount of 50/50 water and DEX-COOL(R) mixture. If the low coolant light operates properly, diagnose the cooling system for loss of coolant as outlined in SI. DO NOT proceed further with this bulletin.

2. Remove the low coolant level sensor. Refer to Coolant Level Module Replacement in the Engine Cooling sub-section.

3. With the key on, the engine off and the coolant level sensor disconnected from the vehicle wiring harness, observe the low coolant light:


^ Light is on - Chassis wiring or instrument cluster concern. Follow the appropriate diagnostic information in SI.

^ Light is out - Proceed to Step 4.



4. With the key off, connect the coolant level sensor into the vehicle's wiring harness. Connect a ground wire (1) to the battery negative terminal. Using a sharp probe (3) attached to the ground wire, ground the coolant sensor probe (2) as shown in the illustration. Make sure a good contact is made. With the key on and the engine off, observe the low coolant light for at least 15 seconds.


^ Light is on - Replace the low coolant sensor and re-check system operation.

^ Light is out - Proceed to Step 5.


5. Using a small wire brush or emery cloth, polish the low coolant level sensor probe to remove any film or oxidation. The probe should be a bright brass color when finished. Use Brake Parts Cleaner to flush removed deposits from the low coolant sensor probe. Re-install the low coolant sensor into the vehicle and proceed to Step 6.

6. Flush the cooling system and install new DEX-COOL(R) mixture as outlined in the SI. Check the vehicle's warranty history to determine if any engine gasket had recently been changed. If there has not been a recent gasket replacement, locate and repair the source of the engine oil contamination.

I just bought a 96 mark, message center reads low engine coolant but heat gage remains normal. coolant not low. doesn't seem to hurt anything, just annoying. low coolant sensor location?


Silly question, but have you looked inside the radiator? I asked becuse often coolant is checked by looking inside the coolant overflow reservoir. Sometimes the ovrflow reservoir will look like the coolant is normal, when it's low in the radiator.

Here's a link which will give you more info.

Low coolant light always on


Low coolant means just that, find out if the system is really low or the light is receiving a false signal from the low coolant sensor, just check the level in the coolant recovery tank and the make sure the radiator tank is full, if you are low on coolant then check out why, a leak is probable, most likely a water pump or hose related issue, and no a bad thermostat will not in itself turn on the low coolant light unless the engine boils over and the system becomes low. Remember never ever open a radiator cap on a hot engine, you would be surprised how many professional mechanics get burned this way, be careful..
