Wiper Fluid Sensor
« on: September 16, 2009, 05:19:22 PM »
What would cause a wiperfluid sensor to stop working? Mines actually only came on once but now it doesnt work and there is NO fluid in it whatsoever? Is that because its dirty or broken?

Yeah, I had no idea. I've run my fluid reservoir down to nothing twice-no light. Now I'm curious...and of course I don't have my car to experiment.

D'oh!

Low coolant lights aren't a good sign. Any idea where it's leaking from?

Hey DarkSlySol it happens, don't sweat it. Ya' had me going there for a second as I though maybe mine wasn't working either.  :D

The low coolant light is one light that you DON'T want to light up.   :D

Just trying to do my part...

There's wiper fluid?  I don't think I even know where the switch is for the wipers, let alone the washer!
