Hummm, interesting. Perhaps there is some conductivity property to the MB fluid. To test, drain out all of the fulid and install MB fluid and you will have your answer.

My window washer fluid malfunction light always appears even when it full on my 2003 Mercedes C180... Please please help, where is the sensor and how do I fix it??!!

There is a float sensor in the washer fluid reservoir, if you could get that sensor at the top of the reservoir( where two wires is connected ) without pulling down the reservoir assembly, do it.
That float sensor might be stuck to " LOW " position that's why it lights up in your gauge panel. Clean and wash by using any ordinary laundry soap, play the float up and down just to be sure that it can fully slide on the guide rod.
If you cant pull or get that float sensor, you have to pull down the entire reservoir, so you could pull out the sensor, eventually clean everything, even the reservoir itself.
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for using FixYa!

Windscreen washer pump is frozen, cannot locate it to defrost, Also is there a winter setting on the engine?

If the washer reservoir is frozen, it must have been filled with plain water. It should be filled with washer fluid. Washer fluid contains alcohol to prevent freeze up. To locate the washer reservoir, look for the filler cap, it will say washer fluid on the cap.

Windshield washer fluid reservoir - MB ML 350

right where the lines connect to reservoir, has little black seals that leak. I recommend removing reservoir, empty it out, then use RTV silicone and place it between seals and reservoir. Let it dry for FULL day. than reinstall.

This is the indication for your windscreen washer fluid. If it is full and showing low on the cluster, then the sensor os bad in the bottle. Replace the sensor.
