I have a 2013 Impala LTZ. I live in SoCal but go back to Colorado quite often. Several times now my windshield washer fluid becomes frozen at below freezing temperatures. This is no fun when you are driving on wet and or snowy slush roads.

The fluid I use is SUPPOSED to be good to -20 degrees F.

Anybody else have this problem? Yes I have searched the forum and not found this issue.

I am thinking of putting some 12V heat trace on the supply hoses to the nozzles and tying it into the rear heat defroster circuit.
Might overload the circuit with this approach?

Any other ideas out there?

One thought I had is to keep the area around the nozzles cleared off on the hood or cowling. My theory is that snow and ice may wick into the nozzles and then freeze thereby clogging them up even tho you have ant-freeze washer fluid.
