I happened to get in the car a few weeks back and the light was on and my fluid was low. I never notice a puddle under the car, and usually I go all spring thru fall without any issues. I am assuming it is a seal or something on the bottom of the fluid tank where it goes into the pump, maybe when it is really cold the seal shrinks and lets fluid leak, but that wouldnt explain how it happened a few weeks ago, and after I topped it up it has been fine since, no drop in the fluid level.

So anyone ever have issues with their wiper fluid being low/leaking or ideas of what to look at on the tank?
yeah i did once, it was the washer pump, when the pump is bad, they tend to leak. sometimes they leak and the bump still works. So check the pump.
