My windshield liquid is frozen. The liquid can't come out and wash the windshield. What can I do? Thanks for your help.
Other than wait for it to thaw out, there is not much else. You can try some hot water techniques, but those could cause more problems than they save. If the windshield is completely unsafe, then you can use simple household window cleaning solution. Then, drive the car. Unless it is extremely cold, say less than 20 degrees, the heat from the engine should thaw out the washer bottle. Then, I suggest you stop off at an auto parts store and purchase some quality washer fluid. They make some that are good to -50 degrees.
