    washer/wiper not working, blows fuse as soon as ignition is turned on, if higher fuse 20amp is put in then it blows ignition fuse 30amp instead.

It's probably your washer motor, it's fitted to the washer bottle below where you fill it up under the inner wing.

The best way to get to it is to remove the wheel and wheelarch liner as you will have better access and can see what you're doing, a quick test is to swap the plug from the windscreen onto the rear washer pump (both pumps are in the same bottle), the hoses should be colour coded and I think the front one has a black pipe.

Then try the switch again, if the back washer works from the front wash wipe switch, presuming it worked before and wasn't blocked then you know it's the motor, you can then either swap the pipes around and fix the rear one at a later date or get a replacement. (hot water will help slide the pipes on and off)

These are, if I remember correctly expensive from the dealer but a breakers should have one at reasonable cost - or ebay.

If the above doesn't work and the wire to the pump is undamaged then it's most likely to be the switch itself, I've not had to change one personally but have replaced a couple of motors on these.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: windshield washer does not pump fluid

The pump works off the same circuit as the wipers, so it would be same fuse. Most likely the pump is no bad.

SOURCE: Rear windshield washer motor works, but no fluid comes out

Rear washer may have it's own reservoir . Can you hear a pump humming when you activate the washer? Look in the under flooor compartment

Fuse blows everytime I attempt to use the washer fluid.


really?! the water pump?! the water pump has nothing to do with your wipers it is part of the COOLING system. as for your issue...it could be a short in the wiper/signal arm in the steering column, or it could be the motor in your washer fluid bottle. the motor is what pushes the fluid through to your windshield and if its gone bad it will blow your fuses as well. i would start with the washer fluid reservoir motor and go from there

Yes my fuse for my wipers keeps blowing and my wipers turn on when i plug fuse in even know the wipers are turned off.


The power distribution box in the engine compartment # 6 , 30 amp mini - fuse , front wiper motor , front wiper relay , front washer pump , FEM ( also # 7 , 25 amp mini - fuse , rear wiper etc. ) The owners manual shows to disconnect your battery cables before servicing anything in the PD BOX

your relay could be shorted which makes the fuse keep blowing

MY WIND SHIELD FLUSH WATER IS NOT WORKING, WHAT SHOULD I DO?


check that hoses have not come off or are being pinched when closing your hood

if living in below freezing temp. make sure using all season fluid, check for clog via sediment also in hose or in the outlet/port itself.

Ok i have a 91 dodge dakota. and i have the ability to use my washer fluid but the wipers them self do not work at all even when i use my washer fluid. i've tried replacing the fuse cuz that was blown but...


have you checked the fuse again after you replaced it to see if you blew it again ? the wiper motor might also be bad and that could have caused the original fuse blow.

Why would my 2005 neon blow a fuse every time I use the windshield wiper washer fluid. wipers work fine untill then. but once I use the washer ........ there she blows!


because you have a "short" to ground after the switch

you push the switch...current flows and then finds the short which BLOWS the fuse

Washer fluid pump doesn't work


The fuse for the washer pump is the wiper fuse so if the wipers still work then the pump is not working and needs replaceing or the hoses topray nozzel are frozen or blocked some how.Take the hoses off the pump and listen to it when the switch is pushed to see if it runs,if it does take the hoses off and take them in to thaw,then see if you can blow through therm.If none of this work for you then the nozzles themseves are plugged,blow them out with compressed air.

Both the front and rear washers are not working, which fuse controls this?


When you attempt to use you washers do you 1 hear a noise and no fluid or 2 if no noise no fluid, skip to 3 If 1 check your reservoir fluid level if full check nozzles for wax- polish blocking opening if clean. trace windshield hose to reservoir pull both end loose and Blow air through if clear push back on.
3 Check fuse panel if not marked wiper/washer and you do not have a manual replace all broken fuses your bound to get it that way
