Windshield Washer Fluid Sensors
There are sensors for many things in a vehicle. Fluid sensors are some of the most important. Low levels of some fluids can be critical and the sensors indicate when a problem is coming before damage can be done. Other fluid sensors are for convenience. Washer fluid sensors are a convenient warning for when the washer fluid becomes low. In some places, having a full washer fluid tank is very important, such as in places with dirty roads, or expect slushy road. The washer fluid sensor is a part of a few components that detect the level. A float is installed in the washer fluid tank. When the float gets too low, the sensor is triggered. Sometimes the sensor alerts the main computer and sometimes it is directly connected to a dash light. But in either scenario, a dash light comes on and warns the driver that the fluid is low.
