While looking for a leak in my coolant reservoir tank I removed the level sensor. After re-inserting the sensor the coolant level warning light remains on. What have I done and what should I do to correct this situation?<p>Thanks<br>Cypress<br>

Re: Coolant reservoir (cypress)

I have the same problem. In my case I found that the floater inside of the reservoir seems a sort of stuck in the bottom position, or not floating. When I pull it up with a wire hook - the light disappears, which means that the sensor is working properly, but the floater tends to drown somehow.

At least it works for you, I wish I got the same result <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"><br>I pull it up - the light stays off for a bit, then comes back on. Dang! I'm thinking about removing the signal bulb as an ultimate fix

Re: (Prospero)

It IS working, it's just that stupid floater inside of the tank will not stay afloat (or sticks in the bottom by some reason). I replace a sensor - I get the same red light. I need to try to remove the floater and see what's wrong with it<br>

Well, I spoke too soon. Same problem as yours. I've just got through draining the reservoir and fiddling with float. By the way, I found the leak. It was on the rim. I repaired it with a product called "Plastic Weld" from Auto Zone. I've got my fingers crossed.
