This can be a very easy job
with your car you may have to take the front bumper bar of if you can see where your washer tank is the it is a matter of unscrewing that and unplugging it then replacing the whole thing tank and all
if you go to your closest wrecker and speak to them you should be able to get a used one there
hope this has helped

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 !

My 2006 Dodge Dakota windshield washer fluid does not spray. I checked the washer pump and it works. The fuses are all good. And the wipers work. When I press the windshield washer button inside the truck...


If the pump works, something should be flowing thru the hose to the spray nozzles.
And if the pump works, everything electrical is working.
How do you know the pump works ?

Windshield washers not pumping water to windshield


The most common problem I find in this season, is having summer 32 deg. F freezing windshield wiper fluid in the tank rather than -20 deg. F freezing windshield wiper fluid.

Try to warm up the car by parking it in a heated garage until the windshield wiper fluid thaws. Then, try to use it all up, and add the 'winter' vs. the 'summer' formula of windshield wiper fluid.

If this does not solve the problem, the pump might be burnt out, in my experience.

You should hear a humming sound as you depress the button for windshield wiper fluid inside of the car.

Good luck on this repair.

Windshield wiper fluid does not work


With a test light, make sure if the pump is getting power. If so, the squirter pump is bad, if not, you would have to trace the wires looking for breaks. There is no seperate fuse for the squirter, so if the wipers work, most likely its a pump or wire problem. Don't know if you have a test light, if not you need one to test it.

My windshield wiper fluid won't come out. When I press the button I also hear that the motor is not running. Is this a possible fuse problem?


Its possible. Fuse #F 2.22 15 amp. If its blown, the pump may be bad. The fuse panel is up under drivers side of dash.

Windshield washer fluid is not being pumped out


Has it got to below freezing in your area recently? If so, your fluid is probably frozen and will need to be replaced. That is the only thing I can think of. It happened to me recently! Good luck I hope this helps
