Was wondering if someone could help. My windscreen washer fluid light came on today to indicate it was low. I filled it up, but every time i use it, the light still flashes.

Any ideas why?

Cheers

Just had a look at a manual online Harry, but it just says it flashes if it's low/empty, did you fill it right up? Maybe the sensor is playing up or something!

I would of thought so, as it's not really a wear and tear item. It may not be that at all, but I can't think what else would cause it!

I'd blow in a straw. Don't suck by mistake though Very Happy . I'm allergic to BMW screenwash, cough and splutter when we get a new car and we fill our screen wash up before it goes in for service.
