Re: windshield washer not functioning,
Is the motor humming like its trying to pump?
if not, you will need to check the washer fuse.
consult your owners manual or diagram on fusebox lid for location.
if it is ok, you will need a new pump/motor assembly.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.
If you have used ANYTHING beside windshield solvent in you reservor, you may have created WAXING from soap in the bottom of washer tank, which clogs pump,lines, and nozzel....take the tank out and wash it..disconnect washer hoses at nozzel and clear with compressed air along with the nozzel...if you use solvent only you may have a worn washer pump or restriction...check those and good luck.....
right where the lines connect to reservoir, has little black seals that leak. I recommend removing reservoir, empty it out, then use RTV silicone and place it between seals and reservoir. Let it dry for FULL day. than reinstall.
IF YOU CAN HEAR THE PUMP RUNNING AND ARE NOT LEAKING FLUID THAN YOU MORE THAN LIKELY HAVE A CLOGGED LINE OR YOUR NOZZLES ARE CLOGGED. SIMPLY PULL THE HOSE FROM ONE OF YOUR NOZZLES AND SEE IF YOU ARE GETTING FLOW. IF NOT TRACE THE HOSE TO CHECK FOR BREAKS OR KINKS.
