How to reset the coolant level on '06 X5 4.4

Post by rswnek »

I changed the coolant tank and sensor and I haven't figured out how to reset the low coolant level indicator on the dash-any suggestions?

Have you made sure the coolant level is correct after the install of new parts?

I know from my time spent being a hack mechanic that it sometimes takes 2 or 3 tries to fully bleed the coolant and get all the air pockets out. So while the level may have been correct immediately after installing the parts and refilling the reservoir, after running the engine the coolant level may drop as the fluid swaps places with air pockets in the radiator, hoses or block.

and gone but not forgotten:
