Is the washer tank full of fluid?
Check the hoses and jets on the windshield They could be plugged. The pump could have dirt in it. The tank could be dirty where the fluid is sucked out of the tank itself .You can take the hose off the pump then try to make the pump work. If it squirts then you know you have dirt some place.
Check and verify that you indeed have the winshield washer tank filled if the tank is filled make sure the winshield washer hoses are attached to the washer nozzles under the hood if all of this checks out you probably have a bad windshield washer pump...
Your winshield washer fluid should not need to be replaced. If the resevoir looks contaminated you should rinse it out. Other than that it is just something that needs to be filled whenever it is low. Try not to run it down to empty as this can cause your washer fluid pump to burn out if you attempt to run it while it's dry. Top it off and try to use it regularly..
That can be a pain to get to. Lay on the ground in front of the right front headlight. Shine a flashlight through the black vent and you'll see the little black cylinder that is the pump. Unhook the electrical wiring and pull it off. Mine was gunked up with sludge, so after I cleaned out the suction, I replaced it and it worked fine.
The way to tell if it still works is try activating the windshield washers. If you hear the little pump buzzing, it works, but it's not getting a suction. If no noise, you need to buy a new one at Auto Zone.
try the fuse first. then try sticking a pin into the washer jets. then try having the washer fluid pump/motor replace. if those are not the case, then you need a new switch to operate the pump motor. (a whole new control column)
These days, most windshield washer pumps are mounted to the bottom of the washer fluid reservoir. Where’s that, you ask? Well, you know that spout you pour the fluid into—the one that disappears into nowhere? Well, the reservoir is actually located inside the front fender between the bumper and the front wheel.
To replace the pump, you will have to jack up the vehicle, remove the front wheel and then remove the inner fender liner.
