Re: 2005 Taurus. Winshield washer not working.
This may be multi-function switch failure. The multi-function is the turn signal/wiper/headlight switch. It may need to be replaced. Is this the type of switch you have. Hope this helps. If it is not the switch then the pump may be bad or have a bad wire connection.

Try checking your auto fuel shut off in trunk try resetting it. if it is ok check fuel relay and fuel fuse if they are ok you will need to drop gas tank and replace fuel pump. if this was helpful please leave good feed back
Find a heated garage, you need to thaw out he lines, or use a hair dryer if you can follow the line path. When working, drain all the fluid by holding down the spray button on the car. Go and buy he heavy duty washer fluid with the lowest freezing point you can buy and refill your washer reservoir with it. Don't add any water
Most likely you had water in the reservoir and it froze.
If pump makes noise we know it has power, first unplug the hose closest to the washer pump, if water squirts out you have a good pump, then follow the lines to the nozzles where they squirt out if all hoses are OK clean the nozzles most of the time they get clogged if it didn't squirt our replace the pump
first and foremost, check that all your fuses are good. If they are, your next step would be to pull the winshield washer motor out and test it by applying 12 volts from the battery directly to the motor to see if it turns on. if it works then your problem is in the wiring, check that you are getting power to the harness when you turn it on. Now, if the motor does not work while applying battery power, then you need a new washer motor.
The problem can be with the horn pad, the horn relay or the horn itself. Find your horn relay, it should be in the engine compartment fuse box. Remove the relay and test for power at the legs. there should be two legs that have power. If there is power there, take the cover off the relay and plug it back in. Squeez the relay points together and see if the horn works. If the horn still does not work, it is probably the horn itself. If it does work it is probably the horn pad, but you don't want to mess with that because of the air bag. Let a pro do it.
All of this is predicated on the fact that you have checked all the fuses.
can you hear the pump running. If not check the fuses. If you do and there is fluid. Remove a hose from the back of the nozzle and se if fluid flows. If so clean the nozzles with a needle as they plug up.
Sounds like a bad washer pump .The windshild washer pump is sometimes mounted to the bottom of you washer container, sometime there inline with the washer hose .. Did you have to reconnect wires when you put in the new winshield washer container in? Also before you go buy a new one i would check to see if you have any voltage to the pump when you activate switch..
Please rember to leave me a good rating if I've helped you ! Thankyou .Let me know!
The wiper and washer motors us the same fuse. So if the wipers work, it's not the fuse. The washer motor wiring, the top wire is voltage, bottom wire is ground. As you can see, at the wiper/washer switch, #5 sends voltage for washer motor, you can see the wire colors. If good voltage and ground and no washer action suspect the washer motor. Before replacing anything, make sure the plumbing from washer fluid to windshield is not clogged.
These days, most windshield washer pumps are mounted to the bottom of the washer fluid reservoir. Where’s that, you ask? Well, you know that spout you pour the fluid into—the one that disappears into nowhere? Well, the reservoir is actually located inside the front fender between the bumper and the front wheel.
To replace the pump, you will have to jack up the vehicle, remove the front wheel and then remove the inner fender liner.
