    Low antifreeze level

    Hi guys. I wonder if anybody has this problem. I have a Trans Am 1999 convertible and my problem is - when I start up in the morning my low antifreeze light on the dash come on. It will stay on while I drive or run the engine for 10 minutes. Then, when I shut the engine off and restart the car the light goes off. I know that I am not low on antifreeze, because I have checked the level and it is right up. My question is - is there any chance that the sending unit/sensor for low coolant level could be faulty? Or would something else be causing this. Any advise and/or suggestions would be appreciated. I know that an easy fix would be to take the light bulb out, or unplug the sensor, but I would rather fix the problem. thanks.

    Could try pulling the sensor and cleaning it but this is an all too common issue with our cars.

    I had the same problem. All I did was flush the old coolant out and clean the sensor and problem solved.

    I'll try that on mine. it does the same thing sometimes. I just put a new sensor in it and it still does it. oh well. I'll flush it when I get the chance. I know it has enough and it's not overheating.

    Thanks for the help guys. I removed the sensor, cleaned it and put it back. It seems to be working fine now. I have ordered a new sensor to keep on hand, just in case it fails again. Thanks again for all your help, I appreciate it.
