Small problem with Washer Fluid Indicator

Was low on washer fluid for awhile and was too lazy to fill it up. Now even though I topped her up with fluid, the "low Washer Fluid" light still comes on. Does anyone know the reason behind this? Is there a fuse or something that I can pull to reset it? Or perhaps something I can do to get the sensor working properly again? Not really sure how the sensor works, so any input would be appreciated.

it's common for 96-00 civics you need to replace the level warning piece it,s at the bottom of the washer canaster.

lol that's why you get for being lazy I guess. Is there a drain plug or something at the bottom of the cannister that I can reach it through? Because I higly doubt I can get to it from the opening in the top.

But thanks for the info Imported!

blinker fluid? you just reminded me.... where can i buy OEM blinker fluid, and will it improve my gas efficiency?



yeah just take out the bulb, or maybe go to the wreckers and see if you can get a whole unit off a wreck...

Yup I can get the sensor for $55 but still, not really worth it. I might as well try to go to the wreckers. Do you have to replace the whole unit or can you actually get to it and just replace the sensor?
