If you have fluid and the light stays on, your sensor is bad. you can jump the ensor with a apper clip and that should make tyhe light go out, and it will confirm a bad sensor.

My windshield washer hose broke off at the hood and windshield, How is the best way to fix it... Also I have my traction off light on and ABS,Brake light on all the time... My traction and ABS have been...

For the windshield washer. Get a small piece of rubber hose that is snug around the plastic hose that broke. For the rest, First check the brake fluid level. Fill as necessary. If the brake light goes off. The have the ABS system scanned for codes. Bad wheel sensor. If the brake light stays on, Check the ground for the ABS module first. It runs from the module to the frame below it. I cut the wire and run it to the body. If it is still on. The module or pump is bad. You can still have the codes read.

Have a light on dashboard that looks like windshield wipers

Check your windshield washer fluid level.  The washer fluid tank has a level sensor in it.  That could be why that light came on.

On board sensor for windshield fluid

The sensor may still be bad even with cleaning, as this is an electrical part, Since the sensor only checks for a low fluid level, it should just be like an on-off switch.  You can check it by removing the sensor from the Jeep and checking the resistance or continuity  across the 2 wires, is there is no change when you move the float up and down, then the sensor is probably bad.  If the continuity changes then the sensor is good, pointing to a deeper problem like a short in the electrical system or a bad body control module.  Good Luck!
