12-4-13 LOW WASHER SOLVENT WARNING MESSAGE MAY NOT DISPLAY ON VEHICLES BUILT ON OR BEFORE 1/14/2012

Publication Date: April 30, 2012

FORD: 2012 Focus


ISSUE:
Some 2012 Focus vehicles built on or before 1/14/2012 may not display the low washer solvent message as detailed in the Owner's Guide.
Looks like you have a 2013 which this would not cover....strange that they are still having this problem.

Or do 2013's even have this option anymore?

I'l take some snap shots of my dash sometime....I didn't see an indicator come up during starting the car. Looking at all the idicators on the dash - it doesn't appear to be there. So they only way I could think of it warning is via the information window.

This has been mentioned over and over again. It's not an indicator like that. It comes up on the screen.

Yes, it's on the (driver's) dash LCD.

My june 2012 built 2012 SE without MFT, but with sync just lit up the low washer fluid level display last night. I have to admit, I was kind of excited after following this thread for a long time. The car has not been to the dealer since delivered, so it came set up for it. The randomness of this kind of thing is frustrating.

Just got the TSB applied to my 2012 Ti after running out the other week and not getting the warning message. Folks at the desk seemed to be surprised about this TSB existing (and based on their conversation with each other they seemed to initially think that the car wouldn't give the warning - they were preoccupied with whether or not I was expecting there to be a dummy light on the dash).

Will wait and see what happens next time the fluid is low.

You haven't got much left when the warning comes on, but you don't necessarily run out then either.
