Wiper Fluid Levelalarm

Recommended Posts

My 1999 Lexus 400 shows a red light and written 'LOW LEVEL ' warning message for the wiper fluid reservoir.. The reservoir is not and was not low. My nearest dealer is 100 mile from our home and I would like to know if there is a simple way to disable the warning system for that device only. I really don't need that alarm / warning repaired, but, the alarm light and message is annoying.

you will need to repair it

it is sensing an open cuircit

you need to short the wires before the break

or atleast see if the plug on the side of the bottle is off

Thanks for the info. I will go to the Lexus or Toyota dealer in time. I can't see anything from above. I gues I need to be on a lift to see if the plug is missing.

You should be able to see it if you look down the tube, maybe with a flashlight.

I know though, the light and warning chime are REALLY annoying. Why they need a chime I couldnt tell you...

My guess is though that the sensor is probably bad. Have you tried adding more fluid to see if it'll go down, even though its not empty?

Thanks for the suggestion. I filled the container to the top-----no change in warning--still on . Also used flashlight to sight down inside and outside the container and could see nothing that appeared to be a sensor or receiver plug. I guess I will just live with it for a month or so untill I get back to Sarasota. Thanks for your ideas.
