As long as you know that the cooling system is full, no. I'd unplug the sensor and see if the light goes out. If so, the sensor is bad. If not, there's a short in the wiring for the sensor. HTH. - Jim

Worst PITA GM Has One copper electrode sense water (coolant) resistance. If the coolant has a rust inhibitor it coats the electrode then you get the flicker. You can clean it but it's a real pan
