cuke2u Hi, in Europe the only Foci that have an actual indication that the washer level is low are ones that have the HID headlamps and thus have to have the headlamp washers by law. The HID's are only fitted to the Titanium X, such as my car, although I've never seen it because my washer levels have never got that low.

BetaDnB The manual clearly states that a maintenance message should appear when the fluid level is low without a "!" indicator. I ran out this morning, but I didn't get the message. I'll let the service department know when I go for my next oil change.

I ran out last week without a warning....well, I guess there could have been one, but if its just a blip on the multifunction then I might not have seen it.

Multifunction Display.

I've done all the syncmyride updates myself, but got the transmission TSB update at the dealer.

Or the TPMS system taking 15 miles to indicate low tire pressure.

Or the TPMS system not detecting the spare tire is in use.

Or the instrument cluster still showing the headlamps on or the doors open on the "car graphic" even though they aren't.

Or the auto dimming mirror staying activated even when the ignition is off.

Or the automatic headlamps "rain lamp" feature not activating when in interval or rain-sensing position.

Or the "rear park aid" overlay getting stuck in the message center

Or the MFT screen saying the rear camera is unavailable, please contact dealer when the car doesn't even have the rear camera option.

Probably another programming glitch. Keep reporting this stuff to the dealership so hopefully Ford can fix it for the customers that buy a 2013 Focus.

And no, I haven't had the washer fluid level low enough to see if it works or not, but it probably doesn't.
I'm thinking there's something wrong with *your* system...get it replaced. I busted a tire and the TPMS sensor went off immediately, and stayed off while I was using a spare for a week. Put the new tire back on and the error went away.

The rest I've never had a problem with, but I've also never seen a Windshield Wiper Fluid Low message...and I have run out, as well. I live in Cleveland, so it's a necessary use.

hey! its not the sunroof itself... not the wind noise or the glass that is making noise... its like the whole module of plastic where you can put your sunglasses and the mold around the sunroof thats making a noise when the car is chaking or getting road bumps.... really annoying... but the problem seems to be due from the glue to glue the ceiling that is failing.... but i think i will take the car to the dealer aswell just found some yellow orange stains on my roof! my car was made on 03-11

MMarchand I have asked about this "no windshield light or message" at my dealer and he told me that my 30k$ Titanium sport package does not have this feature...
