If you're not having any coolant leaks and the radiator and overfill are at the proper level. The coolant sensor is bad and has to be replaced.

Is yours a V8? if so it's a screw in sensor with a plastic cap that a two wire plug attaches to. It is located right next to the alternator and the straight support that attaches to the alt.

Depending on where you buy it from they run $15-22 bucks. Also, don't forget to reset your CPU to get rid of the code.
