Hey guys, my low coolant light was recently triggered although ofcourse the resovoir is full. The coolant level obviously is bad. I cannot locate the sensor anywhere online. It mounts to the bottom of the coolant resovoir. Ive found pictures of the sensor but no actual sensor for sale! Where can i buy one?

I have seen others comment that if you whack it hard it will start working again.

You can waste your money if you like, but pounding on the reservoir will quickly free up that stuck float. Works every time.

The sensor is molded into the tank and is not serviced separately. A complete reservoir is PN 12528777 and is just shy of $100.00.

It might be a good idea to double check the wiring and connector.

Or just unplug it. The light will go out. Don't let it get empty.

I had the same problem with my 96 Roady right after I bought it. Posted the same question here, Jayoldschool posted same fix, and it worked. Laughed my ass off. It's never come on again after 4 or so years.
