The sensor may be dirty and not "seeing" the coolant in the radiator. Try removing the sensor and cleaning it. While you have the sensor unplugged turn the ignition on. Does the light still come on? If so, wiring is shorted. Did you just replace the radiator? If so, you may have to drill out the hole for the sensor. Some aftermarket radiators are for cars with and without the low coolant light option. If this is the case the hole(s) for the sensor must be drilled out or the light will remain on because the sensor is dry. HTH. -Jim

It's not a new radiator but it is a new sensor the light doesn't stay on all the time it flickers a lot most days and some days it stays lit do you think it could be a radiator problem and not a sensor issue

Could be the sensor is faulty or the pigtail that plugs into the sensor is faulty. have a helper watch the light on the dash while you wiggle the wires at the plug on the sensor. If it flickers as you move the wires around the pigtail is most likely bad. If moving the wires around has no effect on the light then I'd suspect a bad sensor. HTH -Jim
