Wiper Fluid Not Spraying

I have 1999 Chevrolet Suburban and the wiper fluid is not coming out. The reservoir is full. What do I check first before I have to replace anything. Where are the fluid hoses so I can check to see if they have come undone?

Open the hood and follow them back from the spray nozzles to the washer tank. There are many points at which you can seperate the hoses as there are lots of T pieces. Seperate the hose and try the washer with the hood open. If you see fluid/hear the motor pumping it, you have blocked nozzles. If you cant hear the pump in the washer tank, you can check your fuses...Also may be at fault is the switch on the steering column that actuates the pump.
If the nozzles are blocked, you can try to clean them or blow an airline back down them. Often they just have to be replaced as some are convoluted and hard to clean. Faulty pump is also likely.

First of all-Check ALL of your Fuses. Inside the Reservoir there is a Small Pump. This is the Pump that you need to replace if no Fuses are Blown.

Windshield wiper pump will not spray. Wipes work but not when the spray trigger is pulled. How can I replace or troubleshoot the motor?


The motor is most likely in the wiper fluid reservoir. Remove reservoir and disconnect motor, supply 12 volts to the motor if it's ok it should spin, spraying fluid every where. DC motors immersed in fluid don't alway last. Replace motor if it does nothing.

Windshield cleaner/washer fluid is not working


Check that the fluid reservoir is full of windshield wiper fluid and that the pump is not worn out or burnt out. May have to get a new pump and remove and replace to fix this problem. Also, check that the windshield wiper fluid is winter type and not summer type in cold climates.

1999 BMW 323i wiper fluid is not spraying. Wipers work fine and I did check the fluid level which is full.


When you turn on the washers do you hear the pump running? if so the nozzel could be plug at the windshield or a break in ght hose. If you do not hear the pump running the washer pump could be faulty.

1999 chevy blazer...where is the reservoir to fill the wiper fluid for the back window? Is it located somewhere by the back tailgate, or is it supposed to use the same wiper fluid from the front reservoir....


1999 blazer i m pretty sure uses the same reservoir, its easy to check, look at bootom of res and there should be to pumps. a good way to test wiring and washer button is to wire the rear to frt and hit rear washer button and it should spray frt window, or just use a test light and check for a good ground and power when button is hit hope this helps.

Windshield washer fluid not spraying


Try standing outside of the vehicle and having someone press the "juice" button and listen to see if the motor is trying to spray. If it is....check to to see if you have contaminents in the windshield wiper fluid reservoir.

Windshield wiper fluid wont come out..


It does not take very much dirt in the washer fluid reservoir to plug the nozzles for the windshield washers. check for dirt in the reservoir and clean out if need be. If you are in below freezing temperatures make sure your washer fluid is good for below freezing. mike

Rear wiper


On my 2000 Blazer you just had to Fill the Tank under the Hood. Had a Line that ran to the Rear Wiper From There.
