Question about 1994 Nissan Pathfinder

Pathfinder Window Washing Fluid not Spraying

1991 nissan pathfinder windshield washer fluid pump seems to have stopped working. When I engage the switch I don't even hear anything. Curious tho, I filled the reservoir to the brim and yet after a couple of weeks without any action the reservoir is half full now. The back sprayer never worked but I do need the front, especially today. The main question here is how do I find out what is broken and what do I need to know to replace it?
Perhaps the reservoir is leaking or the tubes. If the pump was not working wouldn't the reservoir still be full, but it is not. Perhaps it is simply electrical because the cruse control light is not always going on since the same time period. The cruise control works but light is not always on.

    I have the same issue. I am not sure how to test the fluid pump. There are two wires going in to the pump motor and one of them is always hot when the ignition is on. when I jump the second wire (or send the second wire to ground), I get no response. I suspect that the pump is broken, but why would the first wire always be hot? Is there a fuse in the line somewhere that might be zapped?

Check for any vacuum leaks near the fuel system. be careful to notice where you removed the hoses from. check the windshield wiper motor by jumping it from the battery. be careful not to touch any ground wires with the positive.

I have a 1991 Nisson Pathfinder that will turn over but will not fire. If you spray starter fluid in air filter intake, it will fire just long enough to burn the starter fluid.Whats wrong?

Well you are replacing the normal fuel source, so obviously the engine is not getting fuel thru the injectors.
So, have you checked fuel pressure with a gauge ? Do you know for sure the pump is running ?

Yes that can be causing the issue and if it is not fixed ASAP you will have REALLY big problems instead of just having to drain some fluid.
