I keep getting the Low Washer Fluid light on and off while driving. I know it's full - I'll fill it up, and be good for a few days before it comes on and off. There's not a leak, as I don't see a puddle underneath and can't smell any fluid in the car. Where is the sensor at, or maybe it's just a loose fuse?

It's more an annoyance, since the amber light comes on and I think something is wrong with the car.

When you say you'll fill it up, how much does it take?

If you are regularly filling it up, there may be a leak unless you use your fluid a lot or something. Sensor could be bad as well

If the fluid level is okay and it is not leaking.
The sensor should be located on the side toward the bottom of the Fluid bottle.

The one for the neighbors '07 Grand Prix was pricey at about $50. Check with Zspot for new pricing.

Or go to your local Pick 'n Pull Salvage yard and get a used one. It might be easier and cheaper to get the entire bottle with sensor at the salvage yard than telling them you want just a sensor.

Looks like pick and pull will be the best option. I'm not always filling it, and even though my Imp sits a lot, I know it's not evaporating.

Now I just have to find a local pick and pull lot, and add it to the list of things I need...
