Hey there, thanks for writing in about your 2003 C240 Mercedes-Benz. The low coolant light only means your engine coolant level is low in the engine cooling system. You may have a coolant leak. This has nothing to do with the A/C system being low on refrigerant. Have a mechanic inspect both system for leaks in order to have this corrected.
