I have a cooling system issue with my 2000 S430, 110,000

Customer Question

I have a cooling system issue with my 2000 S430, 110,000 miles. The check coolant light keeps coming on. The coolant resiviour is always 50% to 100% full. I replaced the thermostsat and three of the major radiator hoses, so far. The car is not overheating. What do you think ? Thanks, ***** ***** Lancaster,PA

Hello Leo, Lou P here

the coolant warning will come on for 3 reasons,

  1. low coolant in reservoir
  2. a failed,failing,disconnected radiator fan assembly.
  3. failed coolant level sensor in reservoir

so if the coolant is full then the issue will be either the sensor in the reservoir or a failed fan assembly. you can tell if its the fan cause if you turn ac on high and the fan does not come on then the fan is the issue., MOST likely. hope this helps.
