Re: 2005 chevy cobalt washer fluid issues
Sounds like a bad washer pump .The windshild washer pump is sometimes mounted to the bottom of you washer container, sometime there inline with the washer hose .. Did you have to reconnect wires when you put in the new winshield washer container in? Also before you go buy a new one i would check to see if you have any voltage to the pump when you activate switch..

WATER LEAK IN RIGHT FRONT OF PASSENGER COMPARTMENT
Publication Date: January 17, 2006
2005/06 Freestyle ISSUE:
Some 2005 Freestyle vehicles may exhibit a water leak at the right front passenger compartment. This may be due to grommet for rear washer fluid line at dash not being fully seated. ACTION:
Inspect windshield washer grommet from inside vehicle under dash and properly seat if out of position. Pull carpet back and reach under bulkhead pad to install. Removal of instrument panel is not required. (Figure 1)
The pump is located inside of the fluid holding tank itself. I would suggest checking the 30 amp (pink) fuse for the windshield washer pump before attempting to replace the pump. The fuse is located in engine compartment distribution block. Find the location of the 30 amp fuse by looking in your car's manual. If the fuse looks fine try swapping it out with an identical 30 amp fuse from the distribution block and trying the washers again. I believe there is one other 30 amp fuse (possibly for the headlights?) in that same location.
Replacement (if necessary) is no easy task as it would require removing quite a few parts of the front fascia of the vehicle including the front bumper and possibly passenger's side fender.
u will need to pull the washer fluid tank out and check to see if the tank motor that pumps the fluid is getting 12 volts when the washer switch is pushed, if it is the pump will need to be replaced, if it isn't then the washer switch is defective, this switch is part of the turn signal switch.
Mine had this problem it was the motor on the fluid tank front driver right behind the bumper too the headlight out and there it was had to syphon all the fluid out its a 2 way motor so your front might work but the back wont
