Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

My wipers work just fine but the car won't release wiper fluid

When I push the fluid release button I can hear the sound of a motor however no washer fluid, or very little, is being released.  Does any one know what the issue could be or how much this issue will be to fix? Please advise.

    When I go to use my wiper fluid and hold in the button the wiper turn on, I can hear a motor of sorts working however if any fluid comes out at all it is just spits of fluid here and there.

    It does not look plugged from the outside. It does not look like there is any build up. I'm sorry to be a pain but I am just your average girl trying to figure out why I can't get my windshield clean so I can see to drive.

    I'm using the kind you buy at the gas station. I'll try the needle when I get home. Thanks.

WINDSHIELD WASHER NOT WORKING. HAS FLUID


Your hoses could be frozen if its cold where you are. Check the hoses for cracks. You might find fluid in your engine compartment if you have a broken hose. Listen to hear if the motor is pumping. There should be some sound either a click or a whiz sound when you push the washer button. If you hear no sound then check the wires on the pump. If they look good you probably need to replace the pump.

Windscreen washers have stopped working but the fuse is ok and the wipers are still working


Check if you have fluid in the washer bottle. Take a fine needle and clear out the nozzles that spray on the screen, try the washer again, you should be able to hear the motor running. If there is no sound, check the motor/pump, it will be located near or in the washer bottle. The wiper and washer normally share the same fuse.

My 2003 malibu-the windshield wipers work but I,m not getting any washer fluid-usually you can hear the motor when you push the button to get washer fluid-I,m not hearing anything.Also where is the washer...


I had this problem last month. I was pushing the fluid button and was not hearing the motor. There could be two problems in this case. Either the unit in the steering wheel is malfunctioning, or there may have been non winter washer fluid in the pump and it froze and broke. In my case it was both, the button had to be jammed in to work, so the whole unit was replaced(turn signal and wiper control are together). The second problem was the the washer motor and is located on the drivers side, right under the washer fluid container. If you have parts laying around they are both very easy to fix.

Sounds like a problem within the wiper motor not turning off at rest or not reaching it's rest point to be able to turn itself off, probably needs a new motor. Disconnecting it should have no relation to the front washer operation, you can confirm this by reconnecting the wiper motor to try.
