Default washer fluid low

was on my way home and the washer fluid was low from when i use it quite a bit, it would flash low when i would make a right turn, and then i got home and refilled it with straight water, and now the washer fluid low light is on all the time!? is there a reset button somewhere?

the water is to the brim of the washer fluid fill hole.

Nope, no reset button, and since the light was flashing when the fluid was moving around before you filled it, sounds like the sensor is still working, so no idea how this could happen.

try pulling the sensor out and cleaning the surface up and check the connection.

let the car sit for a few hours full of fluid and later on that night went out for a bit and the light finally went off.

the blue crud in the washer fluid will dry on the sensor after several occurrences of "running out" and that is where you get the low fluid light situation. the water may have removed it.
