    I'm sorry I don;'t have info for that vehicle. What you can do is unplug the pump. One wire should have power all the time and the other should have ground with the washer switch on. If it is power side controlled than one wire will be grounded all the time and the other wire will have power with the switch on.

    You can also use jumper wires from the battery, one from the positive and one from the negative. Connect to the two terminals on the pump. If the pump works than its a power or ground issue. if the pump does not work it needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: Windscreen washer problem

Go and invest in a 12 volt test light. They can be purchased at any parts store. Attach alligator clip of light to a good (any) ground. Have someone activate the washer pump while you pierce the wire with the ice pick end of the test light. One wire is the ground the other is the 12 volt feed to the pump. The ground wire will be black or brown. You might want to just check both wires. If voltage is present the pump motor is bad and will need to be replaced. If there is no voltage you have an open circuit between the fuse and pump motor. Run the test first and let me know what you find.

Windscreen washer not working


Most likely the pump (motor) is gone and needs replacement. However, it is worth checking that fuse allocated to windscreen washer is intact. Furthermore, you may also need to check the wiring for flow of current at lever end (handle on the steering wheel) and wires connecting to pump on the water reservoir.

Would my windscreen water pump have a dedicated fuse that may have blown?


sorry to hear about your back, back problems and working on cars are never a great combo. This is a simple fix, if you can purchase a simple voltage meter it will help even more. if there is 12v going to the pump then its The Pump. since you say there are no noises coming from the washer jug then that eliminates a broken/disconnected tube. If you think your fuse is blown, well thats an easy fix. But something caused it. So if the fuse is blown look for a "ground fault". Explenation; everything inand on your car must be grounded to the chasis, when you loose that connetion this Will Not blow your fuse, only a corroded/poor connection. This causes heat and heat will pop fuses and sometimes take out the component you are working on. recap: 1. buy a 12v meter - this is your diagnostics tool. 2. check the fuse - if blown/popped do not replace until you check the connection on the motor. if there is no corrosion your good to put the fuse in. 3. if the fuse isnt popped, your meter can test for power to the motor. if power is there the motor is bad. replace it and then check your tubing.
Good luck

Why won't the windshield washer motor and fluid pump work on my 2005 Magnum SE? Turn signals work fine, but no washers. #18 fuse is good, too. Please help


could be the washer motor. have someone hit the switch while you listen at the pump to see if it is making noise. also check to see if you have voltage at pump. it could be stuck or corroded.

Windscreen washers stopped working. all fuses ok,wipers working ok.front & back washers not working


Hi, First check that you have wash liquid in tank. second make sure that it will not freeze by putting alcohol in your mix of water and soap. You can buy it already mixed at most service stations. Check pump for corosion on contacts.
Good luck.

My windscreen wash will not work ?


Hi,

If you have a continuity tester check the fuses if not pull them out and visually check replace any blown fuses .However the problem is more likely to be that the pump on the washer bottle has failed .The lack of noise can mean the motor has burnt out or the fuse has blown so check the fuse first .You can get replacement bottles and motors from scrap dealers quite cheaply A Mondeo bottle and pumps costs £15 as a rough guide


Good luck!!!
