A warning light should illuminate on the dashboard when the washer fluid
reservoir is almost empty. So it may not be that.
Are you in a very cold climate, perhaps? The standard washer fluid that
Audi dealers use has a fairly high freezing point (~20 degrees f). So it may
just be frozen. If that's the case, get the car into a warm garage, empty
the reservoir when it melts, and then put in a more winter-friendly fluid.
My only suggestion is doing what I said previously: putting the car in a
warm garage and waiting for it to thaw. And then, of course, spraying all
the fluid out when it thaws and replacing it with something more
By the way, I apologize for being unclear when I said that the default
Audi fluid has a freezing temperature of about "~20 degrees f". The "~" was
clearly mistaken for a "-". But what I really meant was "roughly".....as in
"roughly +20 degrees f". So it makes perfect sense that your fluid is frozen
at -5 degrees f.

There's typically a little book in the glove compartment. In my A6 its
actually under the dash on the driver's side.
My guess is that if you look in there, it'll tell you. Another
thought... and its just a thought - it probably would have taken you
less time to find it in there than to post the question to the group.
Which raises the question: How many folks here read the entire
owner's manual in the car, the day you bought it, identifying every
control in the process?
(I started doing this after I discovered why my feet were freezing
every winter for several years.. There was a (closed) footwell vent
lever under the dash..)

Here in the US the threshold for driving is lower than Europe (a right .vs.
privilege); so the threshold for those allowed to drive reflect the policy.
I bet well over 2/3 of drivers here in the US would flunk basic driving
requirements in Europe.
Very true, and it shows in everyday driving -- left lane bandits,
failing to yield, tail-gating, etc. When I learned to drive 51 years
ago, the emphasis was on parallel parking, and still is today.
Perhaps that is why advanced driving schools are so popular in the
