Halfway is fine when cold... probably a bad level sensor. Don't mess with it just bring her to the dealer.

is there air in the system? causing a mis-read on the level sensor?

If you have low coolant on the DIC (or any other error).... and flip menu's, to say.... check your tire pressure or milage. Does the error "Low Coolant" etc come back or no?

I think the low coolant pops up and then goes away, what would cause that?
