Default What if I just unpluged the coolant level sensor!?

Hi
Feel disappointed,having try to get the coolant sensor repaired via Ebay on my 05/ 607 2.2l diesel. I came back this afternoon from local Peugeot garage to investigate;Twice they tested the head gasket, radiator hoses, water pressure but no sign of leaks anywhere.
So they added sealant and topped up the the antifreeze as a last measure.
Sensor still BIPPING!!!
Can I just unplung it for peace of mind!?

No, it 's an independent peugeot specialist in Nuneaton, they are very professional and seem well equiped; they 've done my cambelt and water pump months ago,and a full service recently.
I wonder how the system will react to a disconnected sensor for a long period?

Question coolant

theres nothing that will do more damage to an engine than overheating leave the sensor and get the fault fixed asap.there must be a leak if the coolant keeps goeing down even if it means goeing to another garrage a repair is much cheaper than a new engine.

Are carpets damp in car or any condensation could be heater related matrix or pipe.

There is no condensation in cabin,oil and engine temperature always set to normal; everything works well except a/c that need apparently more than re-gasing; but felt no rush fixing that in winter!
So how heater matrix can cause or possibly explain loss of water?

I unplugged my the coolant level sensor for 2 days for peace of mind and I enjoyed real quietness in cabin, but then soon plugged it back as a friend advised that this could send a wrong signal and cause others fault to appear!!
Assuming I am not loosing any water would it bad to just unplugged the sensor?
