Are you talking about the low coolant light? The sensor for it gets dirty and causes the light to stay on. Take it out and clean it and it should fix the problem.

There is no thermostat light, I think you are thinking of the low coolant light. There is a coolant level sensor in the back of the radiator about four inches below the cap. If your radiator is full and this light still comes on the sensor is bad. You can drain the coolant down below the sensor, pull it out and replace it (it's about $50) or you can just unplug it and the light on the dash will go out.
FYI - if you drain and refill the coolant for any reason (IE thermostat replacement) you need to bleed the air out of the cooling system. See your owners manual for info on how to do this.
