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.
