Re: Window washer not working. Ford focus diesel 2001
The washer fluid line running beneath the perforated plastic that meets the windshield had become kinked and stuck in a metal seam. Resting my hand beneath that platic at the windshield gave me a good view and I was able to reach it and pull it out rom the engine side with a screwdriver. My windshield wiper fluid now seems to dispense better than it has in years. WHEW!

Either the switch or the washer motor, or the nozzles are blocked in the front. Have someone select the washer and listen if you can hear the pump running, if not remove the front pump and power it directly from the battery to see if it will run. If it does check the lines and jets for obstructions. Last choice is replace the switch. (Costly and difficult).
Possible problems are...fuse, fluid line broken, bad pump motor pluged line or bad switch.
Check fuses first then test motor by listening to sound with ignition on and car not running, you should hear the motor run when you try to spray the window or have some one listen while you spray, If motor works then look for broken window solvent lines or pluged lines then check the switch and relay.
THANKS, I FOUND OUT ON THE RAC MOTORING FORUM THE TWO EARTHWIRES ARE TO BE FOUND ON THE INNER WING LEFT SIDE NEAR THE BATTERY SEEMINGLY IT HAS BEEN A PROBLEM ON SOME FORDS,IT JUST NEEDED CLEANING AND A SPRAY OF WD.THANKS.
it could be the switch on the door panel??? Are it could be the motor to the window. Take the door panel off, and jump the switch out. If it works by jumping the switch out. it will be and easy fix. It not, then you will need a new window motor. You can sometime pick an motor up for half price and your local junk yard. When you find your problem out and get it fix. go to the autoparts store an pick up a can of spray silicon lubercant, and spray it in your window tracks. over a pirod of time the window start dragging, causing the motor and switch to fail.
