    is there one?

    Fluid is not coming out when I wash, and I’m not sure if there’s a plug, or the reservoir is empty.

    If it’s empty, I guess it’s time to order a new car :(

    Mine was delivered to me empty.
    1st stop: pickup brand new luxury zero emissions electric vehicle.
    2nd stop: AutoZone.

    Empty! And you didn’t just order a new one on the spot?

    Make sure you’re pushing the button all the way in. I thought I was empty too, but then figured out I wasn’t pressing the button far enough.

    That brings up another question. There seems to be two positions to the button, kind of like the drive stalk, a “soft” push, and a “full” push, which I haven’t yet been able to attribute different functions to.

    First step is single wipe. Second step is wash.

    This was the advice I needed.
    Thank you!

    I purchased my car in October and now I have a message telling me that the windshield fluid level is low. I don't use it that often, so it must have been delivered with a low level of fluid. Pep Boys for me!

    If you live by a service center, they’ll top it off for you. At least they have for me.
