Your Saturn L200 is equipped with a coolant light to keep you updated on the amount and condition of the coolant circulating in your vehicle\'s cooling system. Coolant, which is also known as anti-freeze, is an extremely important automotive fluid which keeps the engine operating within the allowable temperature range. A lot of problems may occur once your vehicle\'s coolant level runs low, which is why you should always keep an eye on your Saturn L200\'s coolant light. Make sure that you diagnose and tend to the problem once it lights up to keep your vehicle in excellent working condition. Here\'s how:
There are a variety of possible culprits that may trigger your car\'s low coolant light. In order to identify the exact cause behind it, you need to examine the cooling system thoroughly. The most logical thing to do is to check the coolant level first. Pop up the hood of your car and locate the coolant tank. Verify if the amount of anti-freeze in the cooling system meets the manufacturer-recommended measurement. If not, you should inspect other components of the cooling system for punctures or cracks that may cause the coolant to leak out. Aside from its level, you should also determine the color of the coolant to see if it\'s been contaminated or not. A contaminated coolant looks sludgy and may cause the sensor to produce incorrect data. If your Saturn L200\'s low coolant light is on even though there\'s a sufficient amount of high-quality anti-freeze in your car, then there\'s a high chance that the warning system itself has gone haywire.
Since the low coolant light is triggered by a flaw in the system, you can\'t just turn it off by itself and expect it to never illuminate again without fixing the source of the problem. To permanently rid your vehicle of this issue, you need to resolve the root cause first. Thankfully, this is a straightforward task that you can finish in no time. Insufficient coolant amount is easily solved by topping up the coolant tank of your car with a 50-50 mixture of coolant and water. If coolant contamination is your problem, you need to drain the cooling system of its content first in order to completely get rid of the dirty anti-freeze. After doing so, fill up the cooling system with a fresh supply of coolant. In case of a faulty warning system, you simply have to replace the damaged electronic component that\'s causing the problem if you want to bring your car back into good shape. Make sure that you allow the vehicle to cool off before solving cooling system problems to avoid getting burned by hot coolant.
Now that you\'ve addressed the culprit behind your car\'s illuminated low coolant light, the last step that you should do is to reset it. One of the ways to do this is by unplugging the positive and negative battery cable of your car for a few minutes. This will effectively drain the residual power from the car\'s electrical system, ultimately resetting the low coolant light.
