Default Questions about my car

Hi. I've got a 2008 PT Cruiser Touring and was wondering if there's supposed to be a light or message when the car is low on washer fluid. Most cars do but mine does not. I'm always running out because I never know when it's low.

Also, when the key is out, is the steering wheel supposed to lock when you turn it? On most cars, the steering wheel will lock when you turn it with the key out of the ignition.

mine is a 2002 and I believe it behaves just like yours. I never questioned the washer fluid because I've never seen a reservoir as large as the pt.
I thought it to be strange because my steering wheel never locks with the key out of the ignition.

Locking wheel was an option...you can lock in manually.

I guess mine wasn't equipped with a steering wheel lock. But what about the low washer fluid indicator?

When you go to spray the windshield and no fluid comes out, that's the indication you need fluid...

Apparently not all have the locking wheel. Good post on the manual lock instructions. Many cars don't have the washer low indicator. Good practice is to top off when checking the fluid levels (oil and coolant), at least twice a month.

I usually check my engine oil and transmission fluid every week. I check the power steering, coolant, and brake fluid about once a month. I never check the washer fluid though. I guess I should start topping it off.
