'91 Chevy Lumnia Euro--Low Coolant

I had a lot of repairs done about 2 mo. ago on the fuel emssions system and computer replaced, and throttle body replaced. When I was driving it home, I noticed the low coolant light on. I took it back to have coolant checked, it was fine so I went ahead and had it replaced. It would always come on after I drove it for awhile. Air worked without overheating, heater worked, and the gage seemed to work ok, mark just below half way mark. The light would come on almost as soon as I hit close to the same mark. The computer was reset hopefully right. I'm out of ideas.

if the light is on now, check the coolant reservoir bottle, there should be an electrical connecter plugged into the sensor on the bottle, tap just above the sensor with a screwdriver or lighter or anything and see if the light goes out,

Thanks BanffAutoSpa_ap, there is a low coolant sencor on the right side of the radiator that I had checked by a mechanic but he said there was nothing wrong with it, so I went and had another mechanic check it and it was found to be defective. Thank you for your help.
