Actually, if you could just get access to the electrical connector for the washer fluid switch/level sensor, it's only a two wire system and it should be pretty easy to simulate a 'closed' switch. Just using a bit of wire as a jumper between the two pins of the connector should cause the message to appear.

Unfortunately, the access is the issue, as you pretty much have to come from underneath the car or remove the right headlight (and deal with the possible adjustment issues there). The level sensor is on the outer side of the tank just back from the washer fluid pump.
