    I thought about that but it works fine when above freezing but then when cold I can not hear the motor! It is strange! I live in Mn so I always put in -20. Then I put it in a heated garage and it works fine. It has been doing this for 2 winters

You most likely have a clog in the heater core. Did you hear a sound like running water under the dash on the passenger side at one time? If so, it's almost certainly a clogged heater core. The problem is that the orange antifreeze clots. It should be changed more often than recommended.

the washer pipe will have blown appart.this happens if you opperate the rear washer when it is frozen.it will either be off in the tailgate usually when this happens there is water around the catch when you open the tailgate.or in the headlining in the left rear,have a feel and see if the headlining is wet.to avoid this reoccuring use a good screenwash with frost protection.

The washer fluid is deluted for some reason. When

When the temperature gets below freezing and you use a bargain windshield washer fluid or plain water, it freezes and won't work. I normally drain every drop, not just add to what's already in there, and refill with Prestone yellow windshied washer fluid that has a lower freezing point.etort

Heater fan does not work when below freezing outside


There could be water entering the blower motor that is freezing and not letting the motor spin. You can remove the blower motor and inspect for water. If there is water in the motor... the source of the leak will have to be pinpointed.

Wiper fluid keeps freezing drained all old wiper fluid and put in rain x -25 and it still froze


Rain X should have alleviated the freezing problem assuming that you circulated enough of it through the tubing and through the nozzles before it froze again.

Maybe try to disassemble the nozzle and soak in the Rain X solution or warm water to unfreeze it.

Trace the piping or tubing to the place where the frozen water exists and eliminate the ice by warming it up.

You may take the whole vehicle to a heated garage and let it thaw out, then circulate the fluid by pushing the button or switch to operate the windshield wiper fluid pump.

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 washer pump fpr a 2006 chevy impala is there a fuse that could be bad ?


Yes, you could check for a fuse burnt out, but generally if the windshield washer pump doesn't buzz or turn so you can hear it, it means that in this weather, it is frozen up or burnt out. Usually it's just frozen with summer formulatioin of windshield wiper fluid which freezes at 32 deg. F.

Try to warm up the car in a heated garage to see if the windshield wiper fluid becomes unfrozen.

And, try to flush out the old fluid when you get it the pump free of ice, and install -20 deg. F or better wiper fluid.

Good luck on this repair.

Washer fluid tank full, fluid coming out but trickling and not getting on windshield


Make sure the fluid is of the -20 deg. F or below type and not the 32 deg. F summer formula. It's common for summer formula to remain in the tanks of windshield wiper cleaning fluid and freeze up in the winter months.

Good luck on changing out the fluid in your reservoir.

Windshield fluid frozen how do i unfreeze the windshield fluid


Well you can pour hot water in the resivor, and when it melts, make sure you use it, till it runs dry...And then make sure you put the proper windshield washer fluid in the resivor...Do not add any water...because your typical fluid will not freeze...but when you add water, it will freeze...

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
