Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, your concern could be caused by:

  • clogged hose/tubing from washer pump to nozzle;
  • clogged nozzle;
  • faulty spray pump (inside the washer bottle);
  • faulty switch;
  • faulty connector/wiring.
In most cases, it would be clogged nozzle or blocked hose/tubing.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

My 2006 Dodge Dakota windshield washer fluid does not spray. I checked the washer pump and it works. The fuses are all good. And the wipers work. When I press the windshield washer button inside the truck...

If the pump works, something should be flowing thru the hose to the spray nozzles.
And if the pump works, everything electrical is working.
How do you know the pump works ?

The windshield washer fluid isnt coming out for

Yes there are two pumps located in the wiper fluid reservoir. If your in a bind, you can switch the plugs and small hose that go to them because they are both the same. The upper pump operates the back, and the lower pump operates the front. The back won't work until it gets replaced, but it beats driving backwards.

Wiper washer will not work. Can't open fuse box cover to check fuse.

use a multimeter to check for voltage at the washer pump (usually on the bottom of the washer fluid reservoir) while someone is pressing the button inside the vehicle.

I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox and my windshield washer fluid does not work. The reservoir is full and the wipers wipe, but no fluid comes out. nothing is leaking under the car either. what else can i check...

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.

Liftgate washer problem on 2003 Ford Windstar

Yes a shop is usually great advice with this but heres some things you can do yourself. first lets keep it simple have you inspected rear nozzle and cleared nozzle openings with sharp pin?
First you must have these following tools:
haynes or chiltons repair manual
multitester with voltage and impedance features
Step one: location reservoir for washer fluid
Step two: access the sprayer motors under washer reservoir
step three: using multi tester set to 20V test hot leads to motors if theres power then move on if not check fuses and follow power leads to look for damaged power wiring
Step four: if there was power make sure the lines are intact and full of fluid after youve pressed switch (you may have to trace fliud line all the way to the rear for damage or leaks)
After all this you should've been able to find problem theres nothing left once theres power and fluid to rear nozzle except clearing the nozzle openings
