    most likely the fluid is frozen or the tank that holds it is empty.

I had the same problem First the back stop working on and off for awile and finaly stop working all together then we had a very cold day then the front stopped working so I replaced the pump and found out that the bottom of the reservoir and pump was full of ICE so I removed the ice and installed the new pump anyway solved the front window ( Also I used -20 deg F Blue Coral & De- Icer brand picked up from Walmart think the water came from that, 2 inch thick ice at the bottom of the reservoir let me know if anyone got that brand and had the same problem) the back was still out so I thought there might be ice in the line so I took off the hitch light and disconected the pump lines blew air through the lines It seemed clear so I reconnected the line on the pump and reinstalled the back light on the explorer and still no fluid in the back window so I followed the line and found it disconnected on the passanger side of the engine compartment where it splits off from the front to the back easy to find just follow the front line to the reservoir and you will see the second line behind the airbox FIXED THE PROBLEM! Good luck with yours.

Check two things - in the engine compartment on the left hand side - behind the air box - there is the feed hose for the rear washer - they come loose for no apparent reason. if this is not it check #15 breaker in the engine electrical panel

No windshield fluid is coming out for my rear window. My front windshield works fine. What's wrong?


They usually have a separate tank at the back of the car, have a look at your car's owner's manual and see where that tank is located, fill it with water (if you are not living in a cold area) or windshield wiper fluid.

The windshield wiper arm on the passenger side of my 2004 Toyota Sienna will not go back and forth. The driver side will move back and forth. This problem occurred after a large snow storm hit our area.


Either the second arm on the motor has come off. Or the arm splines are stripped out. The second arm connecting snap has probly come off or the clip may have broken. you can usually see the arms move inside the cowel just in front of the windshield through the holes
