The routine inspection lights are probably on because no one reset them for many, many miles. Do a search and you'll find the procedure. Washer fluid is no big deal. I don't know if there's any on board diagnosis capabilities. Does it run poorly? What are the symptoms? Disconnecting the battery sometimes resets the light.
