Check for power to the pump, making sure the wiring is not severed. Check the fluid lines, and especially the tips. If the pump operates and still no washer solution check the tips. The solution dries right at the tips and is so thick and crystalized that no spray is possible.

2010 Reg Ford Focus 5 door hatch rear screen wash not working. Front is OK. How do I fix it?


the washer fluid could be empty / the fuse for the wiper blew / the relay went bad /if you tried to use the wipers without clearing ice away you blew the fuse/ if you just put water in instead of washer fluid it's frozen/ if the wiper works and there is windshield fluid in the tank and not water and all fuses are good the pump motor for the fluid went and is easy to change

My 2004 Ford Expedition will not spray windshield wiper when the button is pushed. The wipers do turn on, but no spray. Would this be caused by a fuse (the wipers do turn on) or is the motor bad?


Can you hear the washer pump running when you operate the washer switch? The washer pump is in the bottom (side) of the washer fluid reservoir. You should hear it running. If not, you can disconnect the wire connector at the pump and use a test light to check to see if there is power and ground at the connector when you operate the switch. If there is power and ground, replace the washer pump motor. If there is no power or ground, you most likely have a bad washer control switch. (You have to replace the entire Multifunction Switch)

If you can hear the pump running, check for washer fluid pouring on the ground. If this is the case, you have a broken hose between the washer pump and the jets that spray on your windshield.

Also note that there is no way possible that your problem could be CAUSED by a fuse!

My front windshield washer fluid is in op. wipers work but fluid doesn't spray. is it electrically connected to the rear windshield washer motor? could it be a fuse? how do I trouble shoot?


no the front is not in power with rear they are seperate. check wire plug (connector) at pump,( i assume pump is mounted on or in reservoir ) with test light for power while a helper depresses the spray switch. check for a blown fuse, check switch, check wiring

Where is the fuse box location for 2001 windstar and is the windshield washer fuse named


the washer pump is not fused directly, the pump operates through a central module called the BCM (body control module), so if the power windows work and the wipers work the problem is not loss of power to the system, it is either a defective wiper switch (most common) or it is a defective washer pump motor. My experience? 35 years as a Ford dealer technician

The windshield washer fluid isnt coming out for


Yes there are two pumps located in the wiper fluid reservoir. If your in a bind, you can switch the plugs and small hose that go to them because they are both the same. The upper pump operates the back, and the lower pump operates the front. The back won't work until it gets replaced, but it beats driving backwards.

Rear windshield washer works but front does not....Any suggestions? Washer fluid is full, fuses are good, wipers work but no fluid or sound of pump running when lever is used to spray fluid on front...


Probably need to replace the pump. Separate pumps for front and rear. Check with a test light to see if there is power to the pump. If it has power but won't work, replace the pump. If no power, you have a wiring issue. Be sure to turn the switch on and have someone push the washer button when you are checking for power. There won't be any until you push it to "wash".

camillachimi... yes, take off the front passenger wheel and you then can get to the inspection plate that covers the washer pumps. i am having the exact same problem as you on my 2001 caravan sport... rear washer works but the front washer pump doesn't appear to be getting any power... fuses looked good... even replaced the pump... still not working. have you found out anything more?
