2000 Chevrolet Venture front winshield washers won't spray

Can't get the front windshield wiper to spray. Rear window spray works fine. On the "water" resevoir fill up tank are 2 motors, one for the rear sprayer and one for the front windshield; I've disconnected the front's motor and disassembled it so the mini motor is visible and reconnected it with it's original power source from the vehicle and the motor spins strong and fast. Assembled the motor again and connected again and still no spray. Disconnect all rubber lines and blew compressed air through to clear any sand or debris that may have been clogging them but still no spray on the windshield. Any one have an idea why I can't get it to spray liquid?

If it shoots from the pump without lines connected, then there has to be blockage somewhere. You mentioned you blew the lines out, did you blow directly back through nozzles themselves?

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 2003 PT Cruiser has windshield wipers in the front for front windshield but also one windshield wiper in the rear for the back windshield. The wiper in the rear is operating fine but my front ones do...


More than likely you need to replace the front windshield wiper motor. You should unplug the motor and check the plug for voltage, checking each terminal as you change the speed selection on the switch. This should help determine if it is a power problem, switch problem, or motor problem.

When I pull back wiper lever to spray windshield, wipers move but do not spray windshield. When I turn wiper lever end forward to spray rear window, it sprays front windshield. How is this possible?


Possible there is fault in the cluster switch , possible that the switch is not contacting according to the intended function to power the front washer and rear washer motors.
You need to check the output or using a multimeter the switch continuity of the wiper cluster switch.

Where is fuse for windshield wiper pump located ? fluid does not spray and no sound from motor. Motor was replaced still does not work. Rear window defogger does not work. Thank You


This must be the fuse and is found under the dash within the car. If the fuse blows out then you must check the wiring to the front washer motor and to the rear.
Disconnect and check the rear and the front washers.

Rear window washer does not spray fluid. When I push the rear window washer button, the front washer/wipers turn on. The rear wipers work normally.


I have the same problem with my 2000 chevy blazer as skornec had posted. I kinda already figured the hose or spray nozzle was plugged. But the problem with checking those items is that I don't know where the hose is located to the back wiper. And the only thing that could be I see that could be the spray nozzle doesn't even have holes that washer fluid could spray from. So basically I just would LOVE if someone could please inform this lame brain of where to find the spray nozzle on the rear window and where in the interior of my blazer does the washer hose run.

No windshield fluid is coming out for my rear window. My front windshield works fine. What's wrong?


They usually have a separate tank at the back of the car, have a look at your car's owner's manual and see where that tank is located, fill it with water (if you are not living in a cold area) or windshield wiper fluid.

WHERE DO i FILL WIPER FLUID IN REAR FOR 2006 NISSAN MURANO?


The fluid for both windows comes from the front resivoir. The pump there is suited to pump either to the front or to the rear based upon your operation of the switch & if the rear isn't working, the line will need to be removed near the pump & checked for obstructions.

These can be cleaned with a vacuum tester, the kind that lets you pump the unit & draw a vacuum, connected to the hose, it will draw any debris back out of the tube. You probably don't want to try & force fluid through the hose as it won't fit through the washer nozzle.

good luck
