Wire shorted to ground also a good bet between sensor and the BFC/BCM (whatever you call it)

Not sure if this sensor works the same as on my 92 Acheiva, but on that it was a float that when it got down it would trigger the low coolant light. Mine used to stick down sometimes and I would tap on the side of the coolant reservior with my hand or a hammer lightly, just enough to vibrate it good and the light would go out.

mine did the same thing before I bought my car. I took out the fill tank - emptied it and my whole system - light went off right away and my engine now stays cooler. I saw the sensor was stuck down and couldn't go up without it bein washed away from the crud around it. Fixed now. Try it out.
