there is a SENSOR, that determines the level of coolant IN THE RADIATOR, keep in mind, that because the reservoir or radiator seem full, a blockage can prevent flow, are you having over heating issues?

just to add to what John said about the blockage, be sure to assess that ASAP, because those 60* V6s love to fry headgaskets. if theres not a blockage, than just replace the sensor or if you are willing to check it often just disconnect the wire to eliminate the light

I had a '94 Bonneville that did that. I discovered debris blocking the tube that goes from the rad to the overflow cannister. Cleaned it out and never had the problem again.
