Low washer fluid light

My low washer fluid light has been turning on and off for a little bit. What could this be? nothing else seems to be wrong.

The float is probably waterlogged. You can make a new one with a chunk of styrofoam or go to the hy and find a foamed vehicle. After the float dries out again, they float better.

Usually means low washer fluid lol...it's hard to check your level in I think 99 or 98+ because the fill bottle is in between the engine bay and the fender. Mine comes on and off when it's about low and I'm driving with a lot if hills. Top her off you should be fine...

Yeah, it's probably just blinking on and off because the fluid is sloshing around in there. The float's movement isn't dampened, so it'll flop up and and down very easily as the level changes.

On my 96 the light starts coming on when the reservoir gets to a little less than half full, which means I only have about a 6 month supply left in there. Not sure about the later models but on mine it was really easy to unplug the sensor connection from the bottle and put an end to that nonsense.
