    help with idiot lights

    idiot light just came on today, pretty sure it has to do with low coolant. Its a box with an arrow pointing downwards toward fluid. Basically, just making sure this is indeed it, but all my fluids were just checked and coolant shouldn't be low. Also, does anyone know of a site that shows all of the idiot lights and what they mean.

    Low coolant light. The sensors gum up over time. They can be cleaned and reused.

    I agree, my father-in-law had this issue in his 99 Lumina LTZ, they replaced the sensor, and he was good to go.

    Tip: Any/every forum suggests, epsically new people to it, (i.e. you) to try searching first. Extremely high chance most of your "new questions" have already been answered.

    And relax. Just because you didn't like the answer, doesn't mean I'm an asshole. If you don't have your owners manual, details like this should be included in your post, helping us helps you.

    Owners manual does answer a question of his. Maybe it didn't answer the question about finding it online, but I am unaware he hasn't read his manual or didn't have one.
