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 winter-friendly. 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..)

I know in the UK the driving test now incorporates vehicle maintenance, but it doesn't in America

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 States.

Yes, I admit it, I read my owners manual cover-to-cover the first week I had the car, even sitting in the car with it to check out Cool Stuff.....
