Hey Guys. I have a 1995 EF falcon GLi which has a low coolant sensor in the header tank and is wired in to the engine bay harness but the instrument cluster had a sticker over the light bulb hole, I removed the sticker and put a bulb in it and it comes on and flashes, I replaced the low coolant sensor and it still flashes. Could it be an ECU or BCM fault?
Cheers, Charlie :D

the coolant sensor may be faulty, did u replace it with a brand new one?

unplug the sensor and bridge the 2 wires in the loom, does the dash light stop flashing?

EF Gli cars with ABS brakes HAVE the engine bay wiring in tact.
However the Dash loom does not have a wire going from the engine bay loom to the cluster.

You need to tap into the plug (above you accelerator pedal) and run a single wire to the missing Pin no. 3 on the right hand side of the cluster.

Heres a Pic of the wire you need to tap into.
