    Coolant sensor

    I took some advice and tried to clean the coolant level sensor. The probe was all gunked up, but the coolant is clean. Reinstalled everything and the light still comes on for 5 minutes before going out. I don't want to unplug it since it might be useful in the event I experience a sudden loss of coolant. Maybe I could get pulled over before it would overheat. I'll put in a new AC Delco sensor tomorrow and see if that solved the problem.

    A new sensor will be your best bet and so will a coolant flush if it has been a while or you just don not know when/if it was doen recently.

    It's been two years since I last had the coolant flushed (8/2008). The coolant I took out when I removed the sensor was bright orange so I can only guess the sensor failed because of age? I was planning on changing the coolant every 3 years instead of 5.

    Finally

    A new sensor fixed the problem. The annoying light is out. The biggest pain was reprograming the eclipse stereo sound settings and and XM presets.
