Question about 2001 Jeep Cherokee
Low wash fluid light came on, didn't add fluid for a few weeks. when i added fluid, it only took a quart or so and will not pump
Can you hear it make a "buzzing" pump noise when you press the fluid button try it with the key on and the engin off so you can hear better? also do you live up north and is it or has it been below freezing? and if so are you using winter non freeze formula?
1, if there is no pump noise then first check the fuse box, unfortunatly it could be the pump had burned out from dry running.
2. MORE Likely if your in the North, people often forget to put in winter washer fluid espically if the car has been down south. ice crystals form in the hoses and block the fluid, easy fixes is to park in a warm garage over night once thawed spray all the fluid out and put in winter formula otherwise it will happen again.
3. you could have a dirt blockage in the hose if the pump is working and your not in the cold north, see if you can gently remove the hose near the bottle and have somone press the button see if fluid comes out then reattach and repet these steps till you find the blocked fluid hose.
