Question about 2001 Cadillac DeVille
Can't seem to get the windshield wipers to wash the windows off before leaving the house. Have to get out with a spray bottle and do it manually. Ok, when just puttering around town, but not so good when in dress clothes for work. Is it possible for the hose to get stopped up and if so, how do I repair it?
Clogged lines or spray head . No power or ground to washer motor .

There are a number of different issues that could cause this.
-The circuit for the wiper should be the same as the washer; same fuse. -I'd suggest trying to run the washer while the hood is open and the engine off. If it runs, you should hear a dull whine.(a 2nd person might be of use to help look and listen)...(find the pump by following the hoses from the wipers to a unit mounted close to the dashboard in the engine compartment)
-If it runs, check to see if any fluid is coming from a hose that might have become disconnected.
-If the pump runs, and if you see no fluid coming from anywhere, and if you can reach the hose connected to the washer pump, pull that hose off the pump. Try running the pump again to see if anything comes out in a good stream.
-If the pump doesn't run at all, check to make sure the connector hasn't come loose.
-If the pump still doesn't run, check to see if you have 12 volts at the connector at the pump. A simple check can be done with an auto bulb connected to the plug at the motor while the pump switch is pushed.
-If you have power at that point, you likely need to replace the pump and motor.(depending upon the age of vehicle & your mechanical abilities...a call to a local wrecking yard is suggested ..atleast to compare the cost vs. new)
hope that helps

SOURCE: Windshield sprayer won't work
when you turn on the sprayer you should hear a pump motor running, try this with the engine off and key on so u can hear better. if u dont hear the pump then check the fuse if its ok then u will need a new windshield washer pump. if the pump is running when u activate it check for a leak in the lines. if you hold the washer button down long enough and the pump is running then you will see washerfluid leaking from somewhare. have hood raised when doing this so you can see better.
