Adding windshield washer fluid to Buick Lacrosse 2005

When the windshield washer fluid is low, a low washer fluid light may appear on the instrument panel cluster. In addition, if your vehicle is equipped with a Driver Information Center (DIC), the LOW WASHER FLUID message will appear when the fluid level is low. When you need windshield washer fluid, be sure to read the manufactures instructions before use. If you will be operating your vehicle in an area where the temperature may fall bellow freezing, use a fluid that has sufficient protection against freezing.

What is washer fluid

Hi there:
Also called windshield wiper fluid, wiper fluid, screen wash or washer fluid... is a fluid for motor vehicles that is used in cleaning the windshield with the windshield wiper while the vehicle is being driven. If you have some warning about this, check level fluid.

Chemical recipe: You can use the house hold glass cleaner, store brand, and dilute that with water to 1/2. You would get two yields for the price of one. One gallon of water to a cup of white vinegar is good too. If the smell is too much then reduce vinegar to a level you can deal with.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day

Windshield Wipers won't spray 2004 Rav4

I think the dealer is mistaken, the is a washer jar for the front and one for the rear. be sure fluid is pure, and undiluted. clean out front washer jar, if it has been contaminated with any wrong fluid it will never flush it self out. Second point is front washer pump may have minor seal concern that is only apparent when cold. if first step does not cure, I would recommend repalcing pump. Keep me posted
