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.

In my 2007 Saturn Vue there is what I think is an air pump which is cracked that one port is not connected to anything.


There is a electric motor that pumps washer fluid . Located in the bottom of the washer fluid tank .
Wash Operation (Front and Rear Wipers)
The front and rear washer systems use the same windshield washer fluid pump. When either the front or rear wiper is in the washer position voltage will be supplied to one side of the windshield washer fluid pump (depending on whether it is front or rear), while the other side of the pump is grounded.
At this point, the windshield washer fluid pump sprays solvent onto the windshield. When the front or rear washer is activated, the BCM receives an input from the switch that is activated. The BCM will control the wipers while in the WASH mode. The BCM will control either the front wiper relay or the rear wiper relay to turn on the wipers. The windshield wipers operate at low speed for 3 swipes and returns to the park position.

When turning on the washers do you hear the motor run ? Have some one try it while you listen at the washer fluid tank ! These pump motors do go bad .
turn OFF the ignition.
Disconnect the harness electrical connector of the windshield washer fluid pump.
Connect a test lamp from the windshield washer pump control circuit to a good ground .
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Press the front washer switch.
Does the test lamp illuminate?
YES or NO !

Windshield washer not working


  1. check your windshield washer fluid level.
  2. make sure you can hear the fluid pump operating when you operate the switch.
  3. If you can hear the pump working and you have fluid in the reservoir but still no spray,
  4. check the washer fluid lines don't have holes and aren't clogged or pinched. check the sprayer nozzles make sure they are not clogged with debris.
  5. if your washer still doesn't work your fluid pump is probably the problem.

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 ?

Check fuse in fuse box inside vehicle,if good,then go to windshield washer pump and disconnect wiring,get meter and check if power is going to pump,if so then pump is at fault,if no power,thenwiring could be short somewhere to fuse box.Also check your washer hoses,that they are not kinked or came loose.Pump could just be loose.

My 2009 Nissan ultima windshield wipe won't squirt fluid


Have someone listen by the washer solvent resevoir, while you turn on the wipers and washer. If you hear the pump motor, you might have a plugged washer nozzle. Sometimes a very small needle or pin will "clear" out the hole.
If you don't hear the pump, you will need to get a volt meter at the wire harness to see if you have power to the pump to decide if the pump, or switch is the issue.
