Coolant light

I stored my e46 for the winter and in the last weeks I have been driving my mom's 2007 x3. The yellow coolant light keeps coming on and off. This light usually indicates "low coolant level". The coolant level was checked and everything is okay. I suspect a faulty coolant level sensor. What do you guys think ?

When did you check the coolant level?
I had the same story with an X3. It was leaking coolant. When I checked the level with a warm engine, it showed ok but when I checked it cold it was missing almost a quart.

My mom got it checked by her mechanic, the car was probably warm. I will look when the car is cold. Thanks
