Very frustrated because I got my vehicle fixed after a accident at 900km so I'm not sure if somethings are operating as usual or if it's due to the accident.

I filled the windshield washer fluid for the first time the other day. It was giving me a notification in the infotainment screen, which I'm use to thinking it's pretty low from my other vehicles.

My last vehicle was a 2016 civic, when it asked for windshield washer fluid, it was able to take the whole new jug. When I tried to fill my crv, it seemed like it got completely full, right to the brim of the filling opening, even though I still had a little bit in the jug left. And then the level started to go down a bit and it was leaking, from where I don't know, but it started pouring down the wheel well of the crv. Then it stopped at a level I could see if I stuck my head down the engine bay.

Is this normal?

Secondly, I haven't done too many long trips in the crv yet, but I went for a ride that was about a hour and a half each way, I noticed the TPMS at the last half hour of each trip would give me a alert saying low tire pressure, although none of the tires are low.

So at the end of each way trip, I reset the TPMS, but like I said it comes back up near the end of every long trip.

Anyone have any issues with these subjects? I'm wondering if I need to go back to the body shop or if this is normal activity.

No Both are not Normal - you need to have it looked at

Was it a front or corner accident?
Maybe you cracked the lines on the fluid or resevoir

Also collision could be giving you sensoes issues or wasnt reset after they did the work

I've owned my V for a little more than 2 years and I don't know there is a notification for the windshield washer fluid :(

When my Canadian model gives the low washer fluid message it won’t take a whole 4L jug, I suspect it’s set for a US gallon at 3.75L. No mine doesn’t leak after filling to the top.

As for your TPMS, if the tire pressures are correct go into the vehicle settings and do a TPMS relearn. It is all there in your manual on how this is done.

Like you said, it is leaking and is pouring down the wheel well, return it to the body shop where you had it worked on and have them replace it. They obviously missed that.

That explains why I know nothing about it as it's only available on Canadian models.
Thanks for the info, folks.
