Low windshield washer indicator
I read in the manual that when you have the EVIC (Electronic Vehicle Information Center) which comes with the driver's convenience group if I'm not mistaken, which I have, you should be warned that you have a "Low Washer Fluid" condition. That is, if you're about to be empty in your windshield washer fluid tank, the EVIC in the dash should chime and show "Low Washer Fluid".
I completely emptied this tank 2 times now and it never happened, there never was any warning of any kind.
Now, is it just me having a problem with this feature or is it just non-existent in the Compass and they forgot to remove it from the user's manual.
Btw, I'm referring to page 177 of the English version owner's manual.
Here's a little quotation from the owner's manual about all the other things that we should be warned if we have the EVIC:
UNDERSTANDING YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL 177
When the appropriate conditions exist, the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) displays the following messages.
Turn Signal On (with a continuous warning chime)
Left Front Turn Signal Lamp Out (with a single chime)
Left Rear Turn Signal Lamp Out (with a single chime)

Door (S) Ajar (with a single chime if vehicle is in motion

Key In Ignition
Check TPM System
For me, the real important one, especially in winter (yes I live in Canada) is the low washer fluid one. Having windshield washer fluid in your tank is as important as any other security feature and I was relying on this in my previous 3 cars and was very happy to learn (in the manual) that I also had this feature in my Jeep. But I think they speak of it even though it is not included in our Compasses. Big deception...
I know for a fact the the warning about the doors and gate ajar are functioning, same goes for the headlamps on and key in ignition, I can't tell about the others. If any of you have had one of those, wave your hand (oh, and reply to this also, hehehe)
