While I do agree that one should visualy check for washer fluid replacement the owners manual indicates that a maintenence message will be displayed to the driver when the washer fluid level is low.

Many have reported in this thread that they do not receive this message while others have reported that they do receive this message. It also appears that there is alot of confusion around the low washer fluid message.

If you could definitevely let us know if the Focus does or does not have the ability to provide a flow washer fluid message, in accordance with page 30 of the owners manual, it would be greatly appreaciated. Additionally many have stated that after having TSB 12-4-13 applied to their vehicles the low washer fluid message began working. If you would confirm this also that would also be greatly appreciated.

These confirmations would help many understand if their vehicle is functioning as expected or if updates are required.

Hi there,

As the Owner's Manual states (page 26), depending on the vehicle options equipped with your vehicle, not all of the messages will display or be available. If you have questions about how your individual vehicle is equipped, you can reach out to your dealer.

Many message lights will display upon starting your vehicle to ensure that they work; if the Washer Fluid Level Low light illuminates and turns off during vehicle start up, that is an indication that it is functioning normally.

If you think your Washer Fluid Level Low light isn't functioning normally, please make an appointment at your dealership so they can inspect.
