Maybe a longshot, but my 88 90q coolant warning light stayed on
regardless of level unitl I changed the MFS sensor under the coolant
flange (where top radiator hose goes into engine)  When I pulled the
sensor's rubber "bootie" back it was crusted with coolant that had
seeped (seemingly) through it.

Good luck,
