Default Low Coolant Light

I shredded my accesory belt while running my friends SS and overheated the engine and got radiator fluid everywhere. Well i put a new belt on and it started fine, but the low coolant light was on, I filled that fluid nack all the way to the top and ran it and the light was still on. So i drove around for about 20 minutes to get coolant running and but the coolant was still full and the low coolant light was still on. I thought maybe if i reset the computer that the light would go off so i unplugged the battery and put it back in, but the gd light is still on. Any ideas?

Sounds like your coolant temp sensor is bad.

Too many mods to list, but if it's from Steeda, it's either on or waiting to go on.
