There are a number of different issues that could cause this.

-The circuit for the wiper should be the same as the washer; same fuse. -I'd suggest trying to run the washer while the hood is open and the engine off. If it runs, you should hear a dull whine.(a 2nd person might be of use to help look and listen)...(find the pump by following the hoses from the wipers to a unit mounted close to the dashboard in the engine compartment)
-If it runs, check to see if any fluid is coming from a hose that might have become disconnected.
-If the pump runs, and if you see no fluid coming from anywhere, and if you can reach the hose connected to the washer pump, pull that hose off the pump. Try running the pump again to see if anything comes out in a good stream.
-If the pump doesn't run at all, check to make sure the connector hasn't come loose.
-If the pump still doesn't run, check to see if you have 12 volts at the connector at the pump. A simple check can be done with an auto bulb connected to the plug at the motor while the pump switch is pushed.
-If you have power at that point, you likely need to replace the pump and motor.(depending upon the age of vehicle & your mechanical abilities...a call to a local wrecking yard is suggested ..atleast to compare the cost vs. new)

hope that helps

Washer spray on back windshield


i've actually had this issue with one of my cars. there are tiny spray nossles, that can pivot, from which the water shoots out of to hit the windshield. you need to find something slim and sharp like a bobby pin and place the tip into the exit hole where the water shoots out. gently pivot the nossle towards the area where you want the water to hit the wind shield. be careful not to push the pin too much into the nossle. you may warp the nossle tip and the water my spray out in an undesireable fashion.
