window washer fluid

today i realised this is the first vehicle i have owned that dose not has a warning light for low washer fluid. i am wondering if my light dosent work or if my truck just dosent have one. I thought it was mandatory by TC that all new canadian cars and trucks have them. by the way its a 2008 mazda b4000. i also think TC is basicley the canadain verson of DOT

TC and DOT are one in the same. Transit Canada IS our Department of Transportation.....LOL

....and as for a low windshield washer fluid light being mandatory on all vehicles........I don't think so. Sounds like a good rumour to me.

LOL

That's why you're SUPPOSE to do weekly checks of most fluids, tire pressure, belts, hoses, and lights. Simple maintenance practices take a few minutes, but it can save hours of costly repairs.

But who actually does that......LOL

I remember my '88 escort GT had a "message center" that told you if your headlights, tail lights, gas, oil, anti freeze or washer fluid level was low.
