Low Coolant Warning

After replacing a bad drain plug on a 96 Olds Achieva radiator and refilling with coolant, the "low coolant" warning is staying on. What did I do wrong?

WELL IF THE COOLANT IS FULL, U WOULD KNOW THIS IF THE HEATER WILL BLOW HOT AIR, AND THE RESERVOIR SHOWS FULL, TAKE IT FOR A RIDE, THE LIGHT WILL PROBABLY GO OUT, IF IT DOESN'T, THE SENSOR IS IN THE PLASTIC RESERVOIR, TAKE A SCREWDRIVER HANDLE AND TAP THE RESERVOIR AS FAR TOWARD'S IT'S BOTTOM AS U CAN. THIS WILL JIGGLE THE FLOAT A LITTLE AND LET IT SETTLE WHERE IT WANTS TO BE...

I agree. Try flushing out the reservoir, that dislodges some of the dirt.
