You might want to check the pump or the electrical wiring for the pump.

May just be that the nozzle is froze up. put the vehicle in a warm are for a while or use a hair dryer to heat it up and also the tube. if this doesn't do it then it may be a fuse or the pump may be bad

SOURCE: windows wont work

H ello; You stated that you have checked virtually everything. Was this a visual check of wiring and connections orwere any tools like a test light or voltmeter? Is there any power at the master switch? If not, Is there a lockout to prevent passenger use of individual controls? All motors failing simultaneously is highly improbable. Use of a test light is recommended to confirm voltage is present. One other thing would be to check the body to fame ground wire/cable. This shoul be locacted at a point where the engine and firewall are closest together. It is a relative small flat strap made of stainless steel bolted to the engine and screwed onto the firewall. Checking this last item first may save you alot of "hunt and peck" time. Good luck

SOURCE: winshield wiper works on high

This solution applies specifically to a 91 Ranger with delay wipers, but may apply to other years as well:

There is a "cold solder" joint on the wiper control module that should be investigated whenever intermittent wiper issues crop up. I dont have the ability to post a schematic, but it is one of the leads that come off of the main terminal, and is fairly large. The solder around the lead will look dull and will most likely show physical separation from the circuit board itself. Re-solder with a good hot iron and it may well cure what ails ya. Takes 30-45 minutes, depending on how adept you are at worming your way under the dash to retrieve the module. It's to the left of the ashtray about 6 inches.

Drops of water come out of my 2004 houndi elantra wiper washer moter i hear the moter i cleaned out hose but no pressure

Remove the hoses directly from the pump and try your washer. If you don't get a positive flow then either the pump is bad, obstructed flow to the pump or you have a low level in the reservoir

I have a 1996 honda accord and my wipers will not work how do i know if its the wiper motor or not?

To check the fuse is always a good start. But also ,with the engine not running and the Key in the on position, turn the wipers on and listen for the wiper moter. You may hear the wiper motor running but the wipers not working ,they could have come disconnected at the motor or in the linkage. Physically move the wipers, if they move freely with no resistants, that would indicate a disconnection in the linkage or at the motor, in my opinion.

My front windshield wiper pump does not pump washer fluid but the wipers work fine , the back wiper and pump works

First make sure you have water in washer reservoir, with ignition on reds (not started) then get someone to operate washer while bonnet is closed otherwise the wipers (may come on) may damage your bonnet (would also be a good idea to throw some water on your screen before commencing), listen for a buzzing noise, if you can hear that noise than your washer motor is ok, if not - if fitted with fuse check it and if fuse is ok than your motor needs attention. If motor is ok than while someone is operating the washer motor look under the car to see if there is any water leaking, if there is water leaking than the hose going from your washer bottle to your washer nozzles has come off somewhere, visually check this hose, usually small diameter and clear in colour, reconnect or replace it. If there is no water leak and you have full water and motor is working, than your nozzle, usually located on the bonnet or wiper arms are blocked, this mainly happens after polishing the vehicle. There are 2 main ways of cleaning these nozzles, easiest way is to get a fine pin and poke it several times, this will clean it 85% of the time, if it does not work than you need to find the hose that connects to it and pull apart at a join, closer to the nozzle the better, and give it short burst of compressed air, have to be careful not to pop the hose out at the nozzle as some of them are located in really awkard points, hope this helps.

Rear wiper froze to the window during the last cold spell,now it doesn't work. I checked the fuse and its ok. Is there something else I need to check ?

Remove the wiper arm, and turn the on the wiper, and
see if the wiper moter gear turns back and forth.
If the gear works, the inside of the wiper arm. The wiper gear or both are striped.Very common problem in the winter. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Heater only works when it's on the highest setting (I believe it's the blower setting). Can't get the windshield wiper sprayer to work. Reservoir is completely full!

Heater: make sure temperature slider is all the way to the red /hot zone. This is a different slider than the one for blower speed. Blower setting will not change the temperature. Sprayer: 1) make sure rubber hose from tank to sprayer is purged (full of water). If unpurged, water wont reach sprayer. 2) make sure that hose did not detach. 3) Can you hear the water pump running when activating the sprayer? maybe cable became unhooked or pump is shot.
