The washer fluid low light warns you when your windshield wiper fluid needs to be checked and refilled soon.
Use The Gas Pedal

You may have to reset the signal if you`ve refilled your washer fluid and still getting the warning sign. To do this, turn the ignition and push your gas pedal downward five times. You must do this quickly (within three seconds). This will reset the light.

Low Windshield Washer Fluid Level: This warning light indicates that your windshield washer fluid is low. To make this indicator disappear, simply check your windshield washer fluid, and refill the tank if necessary.
Always keep your windshield clean and clear, and make sure you have plenty of wiper fluid in your washer system at all times. Without wiper fluid, you can risk having a streaked or smeared windshield, which can ultimately compromise your safety on the roads.
Water does not clean as well as washer fluid. It does not have the cleaning power that helps break apart insects and grime and could leave more streaks behind, impeding your visibility. Water provides a friendly environment for some types of mold and bacteria, posing a health risk to your car and passengers.
Using water in place of windshield washer fluid will save money and reduce pollution, but can potentially cause hundreds of dollars of damage, should the system be subjected to freezing temperatures when filled with only water.
The washer fluid level sensor is a contactless capacitive sensor. When a non-approved washer fluid is used, the sensor sends a low fluid level signal to the gateway module (FEM – Front Electronics Module or BDC – Body Domain Controller) which in turn displays a low washer fluid warning in the instrument cluster.
The problem could be that your windshield wiper nozzles are clogged. Polish can easily block these nozzles. The location of the nozzle jets varies from car to car. Look around the base of your front windshield for yours.
Be Sure Not to Overfill

Sometimes when it gets hot under the hood, due to the engine heat or outside temperature, it will cause the fluid to expand. If you overfill the reservoir, it could break the container or cause leaks.

If you hear your pump humming but you don`t see any fluid coming out from the nozzles, the fluid tank may be empty or there may be a clog. The tubes that are connected to the nozzles may have been disconnected, as well.
Place a clean funnel into the windshield washer fluid container. Fill to the line marked “Full” with windshield washer fluid. If there isn`t a mark, fill to about two inches below the cap.

ANSWER : Hello, thank you for writing in. The vehicle does utilize a lot of the same sensors for these systems. Are there any other codes that are coming up when this code appears? If so you will want to take these into consideration when processing the repair and making a diagnosis. The module may be bad, and replacing it should fix the problem. The lights should turn off once the main computer recognizes the new module and the sensors sync up. If you believe the sensors need to be cleaned you may do so. Do as minimal as possible to make sure you are not damaging the sensor or disrupting the wiring inside. A bad connection would make the lights stay on. With so many lights that are effected by the module being illuminated, the module is likely bad or does not have a connection. Check the connection first and then resort to replacing the unit.
