There's a sensor on the rear of the coolant expansion bottle which monitors the coolant level, it's possible this sensor (or at least the electrical contact/multiplug onto it) has become intermittently defective, you could try disconnecting/reconnecting the sensor a few times & make sure the terminals are not corroded/opened up (you'll probably need to unbolt the bottle from the plastic trim it's secured to in order to access the connector) and see if the fault goes away, if not you may need to replace the sensor.
