Default Engine alarm

On way home from Maine. Engine alarm went on . Suspect low coolant, but would like to run a diagnostic test . Can't find engine test switch to get codes ? I have a tranny test switch with an amber light but that isn't it ? Need some help on this if possible . Waiting on coolant temp to go down to add a bit .
So where is the engine test switch ??? Help !

If your engine isn't a DDEC, computer engine, I don't think you have one. I've been wrong before.

My mechanical 8v92 has no engine diagnostic. Engine lite is usually coolant or oil level low.

Only three things will make the buzzer go off... High Temp, Low Coolant, Low Oil Pressure. Sensor for high temp is on right (curb side) thermostat housing. Single wire on a threaded stud. Sensor for low oil pressure is on a fitting under the battery tray on the frame of the bus. Same deal- single wire on a threaded stud. Low water sensor is on the back of the radiator at the top center above the fan shroud. IF you disconnect any of them, the alarm should go off.

Thanks . Sorry for late response . Topped off coolant . Buzzer stopped. Just started again close to Rochester. Will top off again if needed in morning and make a run for home. Confirmed no diagnostics . Thanks again .
