If the pump is working and hoses dont have any holes or kinks the only thing it could be is a clog.. Its a common problem and easily solved. Just take hose off water resevior and blow some air through it to blow out any clogs.

My wiper motor only works on high and stops were ever the wipers are at. And the washer motor doest #39;t work


Low Speed Windshield Wipers
Low speed is activated when the multifunction switch supplies a specific ground to the speed inputs of the windshield wiper motor module. The windshield wiper motor module then supplies ground to only the windshield wiper run/park relay coil, activating it. When the windshield wiper run/park relay is activated, the deactivated high/low relay connects voltage to the windshield wiper motor low input activating the wiper motor. The windshield wiper motor module continues to operate the windshield wiper motor in the same manner as in high speed, but in low speed with the wiper motor connected to the low speed input.
Washer System
The windshield washer is activated by the internal wiper motor module when it receives a ground signal input from the multifunction switch. Dependent on the switch selection, the internal wiper motor module activates the windshield washer relay (internal) by grounding the respective relay coil. When the relay is activated, it connects voltage to the washer pump while the washer level switch provides ground to the washer pump.

    Which fuse controls front windshield wiper pump


    Do the wipers work ? Fuse for wipers is same as washer pump .
    Principles of Operation
    The wiper motors receive inputs from the following:
    • Multi-function switch
    • Powertrain control module (PCM)
    • Ignition switch
    • Smart junction box (SJB)
    The following components are integrated in the wiper motors:
    • Windshield wiper motor module
    • High/low speed relay
    • Run/park relay
    • Washer pump relay
    • Park sense (Hall-effect sensor)
    Washer System
    The windshield washer and the rear window washer are activated by the internal wiper motor modules when it receives a ground from the multi-function switch between the washer inputs. Depending on the correct ground, the internal wiper motor modules activate either the windshield washer or rear window washer relays (internal) by grounding the respective relay coil. When either module is activated, it connects voltage to the washer pump while the deactivated module provides ground to the washer pump. In this manner, voltage polarity is reversible to achieve directional change of the washer pump and washer fluid.
    • The washer pump is inoperative

    Does your expedition have programmable/recall memory option for seats an mirrors ?
    Driver Seat Module
    The power driver seat and power exterior mirrors are controlled by the driver seat module (DSM) only when the vehicle is equipped with the programmable/recall memory option.
    On the Expedition Limited, the power fold exterior mirror option is controlled by the DSM. Before running a self-test or retrieving codes, the power fold switch must be inactive for at least 30 seconds.
    This is a complex vehicle , electronics , control modules an serial data communication networks. You mite be better off taking it to the dealer or some other repair shop . There could be DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the SJB - body control module !

Normal Operation During normal operation, when the front wiper wash is selected, the windshield wiper motor provides power to the washer pump through circuit CRW14 (BU/WH) and ground is provided to the washer pump through circuit CRW12 (GY/OG) and the rear wiper motor. If rear wiper wash is selected, the rear wiper motor provides power to the washer pump through circuit CRW12 (GY/OG) and ground is provided to the washer pump through circuit CRW14 (BU/WH) and the windshield wiper motor.

    Why is my windshield wipers running in the off position, it's like they are running in the intermittent position, but it's in the off position.


    When the windshield wiper / washer switch is turned to the OFF position while the wiper motor is somewhere in mid-cycle, the wiper motor module will continue to operate the wiper motor until the wipers reach the park position. If the ignition is turned off while the wipers are in mid-cycle, the wipers will stop immediately where they are. The wipers will park the next time the ignition is cycled to the ON position.

    What would cause the windshield wipers on my recently purchased Jeep Patriot Sport work on every speed except the high speed. High speed doesn't work at all.


    The intermittent switch has a bad contact in it for the high speed, i would say, most likely will have to replace it.

    Where is the fuse for the front windshield washer motor


    If you are just talking about the windshield washer pump/motor that squirts water on the front windshield, there is no separate fuse for that pump. If you are talking about the front windshield wipers themselves then the fuse for that (including the washer pump) is located is the fuse panel inside the vehicle down below and to the left of the steering wheel. Below is a diagram of the fuse layout (first picture) and I marked the 10 amp fuse for the system. As I said if you are talking about the pump/squirter motor there is no separate fuse. Inside the wiper motor itself (located basically on the firewall on the drivers side) is an internal microprocessor as well as an internal relay for that pump. If the processor or the relay is bad, both are internal and the whole wiper motor assy. has to be replaced. It's one complete unit. There is a chance that the pump motor itself could be bad. In the second picture is a breakdown of the washer fluid reservoir. In order to get access at it which is where the washer pump motors are located the right front wheel and splash guard have to be removed. I have marked the 2 washer pump motors which are mounted on the reservoir. I cannot tell you which motor is which but the one for the front has 2 wires at the connector (a black & white wire and a black wire) The rear pump motor has a violet & light green wire and a black wire at its connector. That's how you can tell which one is which. You can test the motor by either pulling it out and applying direct power and ground to it to see if it engauges or while someone is engauging the washer inside the vehicle while you are down there, see if you are geting power at the black and white wire. Check that wire while it is disconnected and using a good separate ground. If you are getting power make sure the black wire is geting a good ground. If all is good (ground & power) than more than likely the pump motor is bad. If you have a power supply problem at the black & white wire than you are looking at most likely a bad wiper motor assy but check for an open power wire from the wiper motor to the pump motor. It's not quite as simple as it used to be. The wiper motor on your vehicle has like a mini computer in it. I'm gonna say the washer pump motor is bad which is the most common. Hope I was able to help and that I didn't get too technical on you but things are not like the old days with separate motors (wiper and washer).

    Washer doesn't work and I can't hear the pupmp motor working.


    The windshield washer pump is part of the windshield wash reservior.
    There is an electrical connector located on the bottom of the reservior.
    That is the pump .
    If the pump is not in the reservior. I would just trace the washer fluid lines from the sprayer on the vehicle back to the pump. The lines just might lead back to the reservior for the windshield wash solution. Then you will have confirmed the pump is in the reservior.

    You may have to get a new reservior. The pump might not be seperate item, I am not 100% sure on that.

    I also would double check the fuses and any relays related to the washer pump.

    Finally, I would check the washer switch if you replace the pump and still is not working .

    Good luck
