Mine is the same. Sometimes it will flash on and off for a couple of days, then be fine, with no loss of coolant...

The sensor float has absorbed water. Remove it dry it out and seal it and you're all good.

yep it is stuffed. Has happened to BOTH my cars. A cheap way to fix is it is to unplug it and remove the globe from the dash :P

it is a good idea to replace it, not many other cars have this good little feature :)
