Just waiting for the washer fluid to run out and see if a message appears. If not, TSB 12-4-13 will fix it.
So is it safe to say that if the monitor is working then it should active every 10,250 miles? I have not had the monitor activate, however I have changed the oil every 5k miles. I reset the monitor each time, except this last time. Since I last reset it at 10k it should activate just after 20k miles then?

Not sure if I need the TSB applied to my car. I know I need the washer fluid one done. Would be good to get both done at the same time.
