My onboard computer keeps telling me to check the coolant level, but the coolant level is fine, and this warning is annoying me, why do u think it wont go away?

the sensor is problably bad....

BMW part # 5185718571857

actually thats not the part #......

when the engine is running the thermostat will open and close as needed and the collant will be drained out of the resevoir.... when its empty and sucking like that.... add distilled water. or better yet Redline water weter

I had the same problem too. I had to change my coolant level sensor, and it went away. It's really easy to install it.They are bout $14-22. Depending where you buy em. Hope this helps.
