Coolant Level Wiring (solved)

I purchased a built goblin, so I don't have the new wiring schematics.. and couldn't find it in my Haynes manual.

Can somone tell me where the coolant level sensor wires land (oposite the sensor itself).They're wrapped in a mixed bundle which I can't trace. 2007 ss/sc.

I'm getting a low coolant signal. Indication remains when the sensor is unplugged, and the key is only turned to aux power on. From what I've read, that indicates a short or incorrect wiring. My plan is to run new wires direct from sensor to wherever they go.

I'm 100% certain the coolant level is correct by checking expansion tank and intercooler fill spout.

This is my first request for help.. and I tried my hardest to locate it in an existing post but without success.

Thanks!

I remember reading that some replacement coolant overflow tanks arrive without the level sensor included.
If the tank was replaced, it might not have that sensor.

its going to read low unplugged. Try putting a wire or paperclip in the plug to complete the circuit and see if the low coolant warning goes out.
This eliminated the warning notice. Looks like it's just a matter of replacing that sensor.

Thank you!

@Frost Can you circle back when you have a new sensor and confirm this is the case? I didn't have any low coolant message before I tore the car down. I purchased the wiring service from DF and have the same Low Coolant warning when plugged in - I have other stuff to work on and haven't addressed it yet.

I want to believe it's not a wiring issue and I just need to replace the sensor but then again I have seen other builds that have the same low coolant message making me think it might be a broader problem.

I'll be swinging by the local car parts store today. Expecting to swap it over the weekend. I'll be sure to update.

Two auto parts stores, neither had it available in their system. I'm wondering if perhaps the sensor is only sold with the reservoir.
