Checking for codes is always the first step whether the check engine lamp is on or not. Pending codes do not light the CEL.

My first guess would be a bad ignition switch but the "low fuel" & "low washer fluid" messages really confuse the issue.

So you just filled up with gas with the engine running & went in the store. Didn't open the hood or anything? Has the ignition switch given any indication that it might be failing?

it took twice turning the key to start before i left house but i think i may have let go of key to soon first time. fuel was low so i drove 1/4 mile to gas station i went in the store first to pay for gas.. low fuel was showing cuz it was low.. came back out and it was off and display said service traction and low fuel even after i put gas in it. didn't touch nothin. had it towed home. Im checking codes tomorrow but ignition sounds like its bad. new battery was dead this morning like key was left on
