The washer pump should be in the resivoir bottle...remove the plug on the bottom of the resivior and check it for power when the washer button ie pushed... if you have power, then you should replave the washer motor...

    I will check the pump on bottom of reservoir and fuses. My biggest issue, hands don't work very anymore. Thank you. Oh, two more quick questions. 1. My Cadillac has the diesel motor and I think my thermostat is bad also. I don't see where it should be unless I'm staring right at it. 2. My speedometer bounces and is making a ticking noise right where the cable comes into cluster I think. I'm assuming it needs lubricating but again famous for breaking things like that. This car was given to me and had been sitting in Montana not moving since 97. Thanks again for your helping knowledge. I'm a retired 100% disabled Marine, so I appreciate it.

In my 2007 Saturn Vue there is what I think is an air pump which is cracked that one port is not connected to anything.


There is a electric motor that pumps washer fluid . Located in the bottom of the washer fluid tank .
Wash Operation (Front and Rear Wipers)
The front and rear washer systems use the same windshield washer fluid pump. When either the front or rear wiper is in the washer position voltage will be supplied to one side of the windshield washer fluid pump (depending on whether it is front or rear), while the other side of the pump is grounded.
At this point, the windshield washer fluid pump sprays solvent onto the windshield. When the front or rear washer is activated, the BCM receives an input from the switch that is activated. The BCM will control the wipers while in the WASH mode. The BCM will control either the front wiper relay or the rear wiper relay to turn on the wipers. The windshield wipers operate at low speed for 3 swipes and returns to the park position.

When turning on the washers do you hear the motor run ? Have some one try it while you listen at the washer fluid tank ! These pump motors do go bad .
turn OFF the ignition.
Disconnect the harness electrical connector of the windshield washer fluid pump.
Connect a test lamp from the windshield washer pump control circuit to a good ground .
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Press the front washer switch.
Does the test lamp illuminate?
YES or NO !

Windshield washer not working


  1. check your windshield washer fluid level.
  2. make sure you can hear the fluid pump operating when you operate the switch.
  3. If you can hear the pump working and you have fluid in the reservoir but still no spray,
  4. check the washer fluid lines don't have holes and aren't clogged or pinched. check the sprayer nozzles make sure they are not clogged with debris.
  5. if your washer still doesn't work your fluid pump is probably the problem.

My 2006 Dodge Dakota windshield washer fluid does not spray. I checked the washer pump and it works. The fuses are all good. And the wipers work. When I press the windshield washer button inside the truck...


If the pump works, something should be flowing thru the hose to the spray nozzles.
And if the pump works, everything electrical is working.
How do you know the pump works ?

My wipers stopped working! the washer fluid sprays, but the wipers won't do anything. also, my power locks haven't been working for months.


check the fuse firdt if this is ok disconnect the wiring plug from wiper motor and check if this has power when combination switch wiper section is in on position if it does wiper motor has failed if not is probably wiper arm section of combo switch faulty.

Is there a procedure to check the wiper motor on 1991 S10 pickup (only 42000 miles), to be sure it is defective and not a wiring problem?


ONLY PROCEDURE FOR WIPER MOTOR IS YOU HAVE 2 SPEEDS THAT WORK SLOW AND FAST SPEED.WIPERS WILL RETRACT TO THE BOTTOM OF HOOD LINE WHEN YOU TURN OFF. WIPERS SHOULD TURN OFF. CHECK WIPER RESERVOIR MAKE SURE ITS FULL AND WIPER WASHER SPRAY FLUID CLEAN WINDSHIELD. IF WIPER MOTOR DO ALL THE ABOVE THEN ITS OKAY.IF WIPER MOTOR WORKS SLOW LOOK FOR BINDING AT WIPER ARM LINKAGE AND PIVOT LUBRICATE LINKAGE AND PIVOT COULD HELP.IF WIPER MOTOR DONT WORK CHECK FOR POOR GROUND OR BLOWED FUSE.WIPER WORK AT ONE SPEED CONTROL SWITCH IS BAD.IF WIPER BLADES STOP WHERE EVER THEY ARE OR FAIL TO TURN OFF UNLESS YOU TURN OFF IGNITION SWITCH WIPER MOTOR LIMIT SWITCH BROKEN.IF WIPERS DONT RETRACT BELOW BOTTOM HOOD LINE LOOK FOR MECHANICAL OBSTRUCTION OR WIPER MOTOR FAULTY.
