Replace the sensor in the bottle. you can check for a wiring issue by unplugging the sensor and see if the light goes out. if it doesn't, install a jumper wire in the connector. the float in the bottle is just an on/off switch

Unhook the battery for about ten minutes ... that should reset the light... if it comes back on have the codes scanned (autozone is free).

SOURCE: windshield wiper fluid will not squirt - wipers are fine but no fluid comes through

Either the pump is bad, or the nozzles are clogged.

SOURCE: My windshield washer fluid is not pumping out to

Remove the small tube that's attached to the fluid tank and press the wash button.
1 - If fluid isn't gushing out take out the connector to the pump and connect a light bulb to it. If the bulb lights up when you press the button the pump either is busted (replace it) or its connectors are corroded (clean them).
2 - if the fluid is gushing out then it's a blockage somewhere down the line; put the tube back in the tank, find and disconnect the other end, press the button. If it doesn't work then you have found the culprit - replace it. If it does flow then continue till you locate the blocked part.

Whats the code to turn off windshield wiper fluid light off from dash. My windshield wiper fluid is full and light stays on. How do i turn it off? 2004 grand am gt


You have a lvl sensor located in the bottom of your washer bottle, you will either need to repair or change your sensor, or unplug the sensor to keep an open circuit.

Both front & real window washers aren't working...fluid doesn't pump but the fluid well is full


What fluid do you have in the tanks? Is it the summer formula which may freeze below 32 deg. F? Or, I would check fuses for the windshield wiper fluid pumps.

Also, check with a test light to see if the test light goes on when the backprobed connection to the windshield wiper fluid pump should be energized with the button or switch inside the vehicle.

If the electric pumps which should wrrrr when working are bad, replace at or near the tanks.

Windshield wiper light is lit on the dashboard; fluid is full


Sensor in washer tank is probably stuck down or wires came off. Sometimes the "float" sticks when cold. Make sure washer fluid is not frozen or tank has a lot of "gunk" in bottom that'll gum up sensor also.

Windshield washers not pumping water to windshield


The most common problem I find in this season, is having summer 32 deg. F freezing windshield wiper fluid in the tank rather than -20 deg. F freezing windshield wiper fluid.

Try to warm up the car by parking it in a heated garage until the windshield wiper fluid thaws. Then, try to use it all up, and add the 'winter' vs. the 'summer' formula of windshield wiper fluid.

If this does not solve the problem, the pump might be burnt out, in my experience.

You should hear a humming sound as you depress the button for windshield wiper fluid inside of the car.

Good luck on this repair.

Light on dashboard with car and wrench lit up


This would be your engine check light. First off you need to check all your fluid levels. This includes windshield wiper fluid, brake fluid, oil, transmission fluid if it is an automatic. Remember that the transmission fluid on an auotmatic measuers in pints on the dip stick and not quarts even though it comes in quart bottles. The car must be in neutral and riunning while checking the fluid. Be sure you put the emergency brake on too just in case it ever slipped into gear. Things happen. Check radiator water level and power steering fluid.
With this light on it the computer will drop the engine into safe mode and have less power. If after all the fluids are filled and it is still on then it will be time to take it in and have the mechanic check the computer to tell you what needs repaired. This may cost 75 bucks or more but there is a thousand things that can turn that light on. Unless you can tell me if the car was acting up in any other features prior to the light coming on. If so then let me know and I will try to help you, Good Luck, The Raz
