What about the coolant level sensor?

if you replaced both, there is a problem in the wiring somewhere.

NOPE, thats has its own reading. How would I find out if the wiring is the issue?

This is from About.com's Auto Reapair section.
Quote:
The Coolant Sensor Bad Message indicates a bad Coolant Level Sensor, a bad Vehicle Information Center (VIC) or an open in the wiring.

The Coolant Level Sensor resistance is 3.3K ohms. If you check it at the sensor and the VIC connector, you will be able to determine if it is the sensor or the wiring.

I'd check that... and give this a read: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=175207
