Talking Coolant Level Warning

Any one had any problems with the Coolant Warning on the dash. Coolant level low, but after adding coolant level the warning still has not gone away! Flashes in bright orange. The same color orange when the exhaust is cleaning. When I hit the OK button on the steering wheel, the warning goes away. It comes on periodically and after the truck is truned off and restarted it flashes the warning - any ideas? Bad sensor maybe?

You have so reset the display. My dealer showed me how to do it.

I believe you go to the settings then maintenance screen and there will be a choice labeled "coolant additive" and if you select it you have the choice to reset it.

It has never come up on mine and it is older with 45k on it. I would take it in to get a record of it occurring. Check Coolant additive comes about every 12-14k miles.
