Washer Fluild Level Warning Light >> Bogus

I am getting a "washer fluid low" warning, but the fluid level is fine and there does not appear to be any leakage.

Has anyone had problems with the sensor going bad and giving a bogus warning?

The problem was in fact a bad water pump. The car is a CPO, so I got it fixed for $50 after a free tow.

Wiper Blades

I also bought some from Amazon (at $36) work fine and was delivered in 10 days. Easy to install. Hope the stand up over time.
