Question about 2005 Pontiac Vibe
The wipers (front and rear) respond when I activate the washer control, but no fluid.
Reservoir is full.
Fuse appears to be intact.
Unable to trace much of hose from reservoir, but near reservoir hose appears empty.
How can I trace fault without dismantling front end to access hose??!!
I wouldn't worry about tracing the hose just yet, most likely it's a bad pump. Find the wire(s) going to the pump, usually on the bottom of the reservoir and connect a test light to a good ground. Then have someone try to 'squirt' the washer fluid while you touch the test light 'probe' to the pump's wire connector. If it lights but no fluid squirts, it's bad. They are cheap and usually very easy to replace. If it doesn't light there's a brake in the circuit somewhere. (bad fuse, bad connector, etc.) Good luck.
