The only thing i can think of is a bad pump. try taking the power wires off of the pump and see if you are geting power with a test light. if you are not it is probally a blown fuse if you are it is most likely a bad pump

Where is the fuse for the water pump for the window washer


A washer pump in a car's windshield wiping system moves washer fluid from a reservoir through hoses. The motorized pump pressurizes the fluid to allow it to be squirted from the hoses through nozzles onto the front and/or rear windshield of a car. The washer fluid helps windshield wipers get rid of rain, dirt, or other objects that can interfere with a driver's visibility. If your washer fluid is not being sent out when activated, the solution could simply be filling the washer system's reservoir with more fluid or cleaning the nozzles and hoses. In more severe cases, the washer pump may need to be replaced. Here are steps to troubleshoot a windshield-washer pump.

Windshield Washer Fluid Leak


Go to a hardware/plumbing store and ask about hose clips. You could try plastic cable ties, or some strong wire twisted with pliers.

My saturn sc1 1999 stopped spraying washer fluid out of the driver side, the passenger side sprays fine. How can I fix this?


Sounds like the rubber hose broke between the Tee fitting and the spray nozzle. If the nozzles are between the hood and windshield, you may have to remove the wiper arms and the panel under the windshield to get to the hose.

Wipers don't work on my 2006 Colorado. They drag and sometimes don't come on at all


Windshield Wipers Not Working - Things to Check
To troubleshoot car windshield wiper problems, you need to thoroughly investigate problems with any of its operating parts. Here are some of the things that you need to check to determine why are your car windshield wipers not working.
Check Wiper Motor
The wiper motor is the driving force of the windshield wiper. Feel the motor and listen to a humming sound. If there is no humming, the motor is the problem. Check if the motor is working properly and see to it that its electrical connections are made properly. If you find that the motor is dead and beyond repair, get it replaced immediately.
Check For Break in Connecting Wires
The connecting wires of the motor sometimes go loose and that may cause the windshield wipers to stop working. Also check the battery plug connection which the motor has. Connecting the loose wires properly or fixing/replacing the plug might solve your problem.
Check Wiper Switch
Another wiper assembly part that can malfunction is the wiper switch itself. Check for switch malfunction and if you find that is indeed the problem, get it replaced from a mechanic.
Check for Bent Wiper Arms
Bent wiper arms can cause the operation of the wipers to be hampered. If the wiper arms are bent beyond repair, get them replaced immediately.
Check For Blown Out Car Fuse
A blown up car fuse could be the culprit that has stopped the windshield wipers from working. Check the fuse assembly under the dashboard of the car. Replacing a blown fuse might fix the problem of windshield wipers not working.
Windshield Wiper Sprayers Not Working - Things to Check
Sometimes the windshield wiper sprayer stops working which can be very annoying. The washer mechanism is a self cleaning mechanism for the windshield. Here are some of the things that you need to check in case it is not working.
Check Windshield Washer Motor
The windshield washer mechanism might have been impaired due to the malfunctioning of the wiper washer motor. Check if its working and get it replaced if it is beyond repair.
Check Windshield Washer Fluid Level
Sometimes the washer doesn't work because the washer fluid levels are not filled to requisite levels. Filling in fluid might restore normal functioning.
Check For Broken Washer Hose
The connecting washer hose that connects the reservoir to the nozzle, might be broken or worn out stalling the overall operation. Check the hose for leaks and get it replaced.
Check Washer Nozzle For Clogging
Last thing to check is the nozzle of the washer for clogging. An obstruction in the washer nozzle might be the reason for windshield wiper sprayers not working. Using a pin, clean the clogged nozzle. This might restore the sprayer to the normal working condition.

The windshield washer fluid is not coming out?


Check for frozen conditions in the nozzles. Do you hear the washer pump running? Try to disconnect the hose somewhere before the nozzles and test. If you get plenty of pressure, clean or unfreeze the nozzles. Use winter mix. Good luck.

WINDSHIELD RESERVOIR RAPIDLY EMPTIES WHEN WASHER FLUID IS ENGAGED. THE RESERVOIR RETAINS FLUID WHEN THE PUMP IS NOT ENGAGED.


There a small diameter hoses that run the the nozzles for the front and rear windshield. More than likely, one is loose or cracked and is leaking. Do you have good spray on the windshield as you operate it? Is one weaker than the other? - If so, you definitely have a leak in a hose or nozzle. Another common leak area is around the reservoir edge or near the pump. The pump commonly resides at the bottom of the reservoir.
Hope this helps!

Windshield washer fluid not coming up at front, just at the rear


Check the hoses running to the front windshield washer nozzles. If the hoses are good check the pump to see if it is working correctly. Remove one of the hoses from the spray nozzle and see if the pump is working. If it is then the spay nozzles are stopped up. Use a needle to clean them out. They can easily get plugged with wax. If the pump is not working then either the fuse is blown or the pump is defective.

Windshield Washer Pump


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.
