Low washer fluid light constantly flashes

Every time I hit a bump or take a sharp corner. While I was test driving XJ's over the summer every one I drove did this.

Is it a bad sensor? A quick look at the wiring doesn't show anything obvious.

Make that the low washer fluid light.

the floats are bad for getting waterlogged, either buy a NEW one from the dealer or disconnect the sensor wires from the top of the float

junkyard units are short-term fix at best, they are either just as waterlogged or will be shortly.

Just pull the wiring. I did on mine because it was the same problem. When it is low, you will know.
