    hi all ,i replaced my washer bottle that doesn't have a low level sensor,my question is can i join any of the wires to fool it so it thinks there is a sensor there until i get a new one.

    Couldn't you have pulled the sensor out of the old bottle and put it in the new one? I thought it was just a rubber bung with a 2 prong plug in it?

    Either way, yes you can (I did on my last car) - just join together the two wires that went to the bottle and this should kill the warning.

    Alternatively ground out the sensor pin on the cluster.

    I mean if you need to disable the washer warning because no sensor is fitted, you can connect a wire from the cluster to the chassis/ground & this will tell the car the sensor is fine & not warn you.
