What does the low windshield washer fluid level Warning Light mean?

The “Windshield Washer Fluid Level” Warning Light indicates that the level of windshield washer fluid is low and should be added to the windshield washer fluid tank as soon as possible. Windshield washer fluid is a mixture that contains both soap and antifreeze. Antifreeze is an important part of the cooling system. However, it is important to note that, although antifreeze is a part of the windshield washer fluid mixture, appropriate levels of antifreeze and windshield washer fluid are different but are both necessary.

Windshield washer fluid is primarily used to clean the windshield during the operation of a vehicle for optimal visibility. However, there are other reasons why windshield washer fluid is important.

Windshield washer fluid also lubricates the components of the windshield washer system and is necessary for the windshield washer system to operate properly. Failing to keep windshield washer fluid in the windshield washer fluid tank could cause damage to the windshield washer system components, cause leaks in the windshield washer system, and/or cause premature failure of the entire windshield washer system.

If your Windshield Washer Fluid Level Warning Light is on in the dashboard, it is time to add windshield washer fluid to the windshield washer fluid tank. Windshield washer fluid is not expensive and can be found at most gas stations and auto parts stores.
