Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
96 Taurus, V6, GL: washer pump motor will not run. I had intermittent issues before, then it failed.
I replaced the pump, replaced relay, fuses ok. Washer pump worked 3 times then failed.
Is it a bad switch on the steering column Multifunction stalk?
It is most likely another faulty pump motor. They never were anygood to start with. If you are buying aftermarket then try an OEM. If you had a testlight you could unplug the terminals from the pump and use you testlight there to see if it is getting voltage with the switch on or if you don't have a testlight, you could unplug the pump and run two wires from ground and a close 12 volt wire that you know of to the pump and see if it runs. If not then it is the pump. If it does run then it is the switch.
