Question about 2004 Toyota RAV4

1 Answer

My washer fluid light began to come on really faint. Then I filled the tank up with washer fluid and now the light is constantly on. I though this meant that I needed fluid, but now that fluid is in the tank what else could be the problem?

Sometimes sludge can collect in the tank causing the sensor to malfunction. Use the fluid in the tank and when it is empty, clean out the tank and sensor. If this does not fix the problem, you may need to replace the sensor.

How do I reset the windshield washer low light on the dash of my 2012 Chrysler 300?


The light will go out when the washer fluid tank is filled, if it is full then the level sensor is defective and you need to install a new one, it is located in the washer fluid tank.

2011 Toyota Camry winshield washer fluid light on dashboard won't turn off after filling tank.


The sensor inside the tank is defective or covered in goo. Remove the sensor from the tank or remove the tank and flush it clean with hot water and a mild solution of white vinegar, if the sensor still reads the tank is low replace it.

There is a little float mechanism inside the washer tank that is probably stuck or binding. If the wiper/washers work, you have power to the fluid tank.
Pull of the top and see if you can locate it. You might need a piece of flexible, fine wire to GENTLY help it along...

Hello, the washer fluid fill is the same as the front windshield washer tank. They use separate pumps though. If you are not getting any fluid to the back glass when you try it, you may have a restriction or either a bad pump. Please rate my answer, thank you.
