I have a 2002 Chrysler Voyager. The front windscreen washer motor has stopped working. I have checked the relays and fuses, all appear to be OK. My next step will be to locate the motor, I assume it is in the washer reservoir, don't know how to get to it, and connect 12 volts to the motor isolating the problem to the motor or the wiring. I have also checked all of the fluid delivery hoses and they are all clear. How do I get to the motor / remove the fluid tank. What is your opinion of my approach and it there a better way to do this.? ?
Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Re: Front windshield washer motor does not work.
It should be located at the bottom of the tank held in by a rubber grommet. I think the best way to get to it is to remove the tank, sorry if this doesn't help much. Since I work at a Chrysler dealer I will try to get a better way for you tomorrow at work, and a price of the new pump in case that is the problem.

Hi, First check that you have wash liquid in tank. second make sure that it will not freeze by putting alcohol in your mix of water and soap. You can buy it already mixed at most service stations. Check pump for corosion on contacts. Good luck.
With both of them failing at the same time, you might suspect a fuse. Take the lid off the fuse box and look at the inside of the lid. Often there is a diagram there to show you which fuse to check. If the diagram is not there, it may be in the owners manual. I hope it's that simple. Good luck, genetuck

Blower on high only is probably the resistor, on my 99' it was under hood up behind passenger side strut tower, on firewall. 1-1/2"x 3" block or pad with wire connector attached. Pulls out if no sign of bolts or screws holding it. About $20.
Windshield washer pump, can you hear it clicking at all when pushed? You've checked for bad fuse?
if you lie on the floor under the reservoir and look where the plastic is round under the wheel arch then you will see at the very bottom of reservoir is the offending motor. if you hear it start off but still no water then you mite just have a blockage. caution should be take when taking this off as it will squirt water all overt the place.
Generally, the pumps will be located in the fluid resivors. Have some activate the washers while you listen for the sound of the pump. It will make a whirring sound. If the pump motor is running, the next step is to disconnect the hose from the pumps and with compresser air, gently blow through the hose. It is common the the hose or nozzles to clog.
