2009 X5 washer fluid warning lights

My warning light keeps coming on. I will refill the windshield wiper and drive it for couple days and it will come on again. Do I have a leak? or just sensor is mess up?

If you keep filling the tank, there are only two options:

1. Using it

2. Leaking it.

Only you know the answer to #1, this will then answer #2.

Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.

Angry Leaking washer fluid

I had this happen to mine several months ago. The washer fluid line to the rear washer runs under the carpet. I kept pouring and it soaked the carpet and pad. Dealer had to pull entire interior, hang carpets to dry for 4 days and replace the line which is cheap plastic and becomes crimped somehow. Quit pouring fluid!! Hope this helps.
