Check wires that goes from fuse box to washer pump . Also check the plug the attatches to the pump it self , when checking it make sure you check the voltage and ground while operating it . That is because its momentarily powerd , also check ground signal from switch .

SOURCE: Windshield washer front and back

Whenever a system stops working - Always check the fuse first. These are designed to blow if the blades get stuck by ice etc.
Check the wipers are free to move and not stuck, then replace the fuse with on of a similar value.
Inside the fusebox there should be a plastic clip that may make removal easier.
As both systems often use the same fuse - I would think that's the fault

Windshield wiper washer pump fuse

On a lot of cars, that washer pump circuit is really a sub-circuit of the windshield wipers themselves. The wiper fuse is also the washer pump fuse, in other words.

Use a test light or a voltmeter. Pull off the electrical connector at the pump on the washer fluid tank. Have a helper turn the key on, then press for the washer pump to operate. Take your test light and clip the ground lead to the negative battery post. Touch the tester probe to the positive terminal to assure the light is bright, that the test light will work. Now probe the connector at the washer pump. One of them wires should light up the test light, or would show battery voltage with a voltmeter or multi-meter. If it has power when key is on and washer switch on, the motor is bad, or sometimes you have to go a little further and find a ground fault.

If there is no power on any wire at the pump connector, you will have to look at a wiring diagram to diagnose it. Find out just how the pump gets power.

Would my windscreen water pump have a dedicated fuse that may have blown?

sorry to hear about your back, back problems and working on cars are never a great combo. This is a simple fix, if you can purchase a simple voltage meter it will help even more. if there is 12v going to the pump then its The Pump. since you say there are no noises coming from the washer jug then that eliminates a broken/disconnected tube. If you think your fuse is blown, well thats an easy fix. But something caused it. So if the fuse is blown look for a "ground fault". Explenation; everything inand on your car must be grounded to the chasis, when you loose that connetion this Will Not blow your fuse, only a corroded/poor connection. This causes heat and heat will pop fuses and sometimes take out the component you are working on. recap: 1. buy a 12v meter - this is your diagnostics tool. 2. check the fuse - if blown/popped do not replace until you check the connection on the motor. if there is no corrosion your good to put the fuse in. 3. if the fuse isnt popped, your meter can test for power to the motor. if power is there the motor is bad. replace it and then check your tubing.
Good luck

I have a Kia Rio 05 13 LX wahser not working - wipers ok - could be a blown fuse - which one?

Any fuse that has blown! If it blows again, than you have a short. It would be easier to check all of the fuses first, then check for power to the washer pump. If there is power, but the pump does not run, replace the pump. If there is no power to the pump, Then I would be glad to try to find the fuse diagram for that car so that you could make sure that there is actually a fuse in it's place! I have seen a lot of missing fuses in my day...

My front windshield washer fluid is in op. wipers work but fluid doesn't spray. is it electrically connected to the rear windshield washer motor? could it be a fuse? how do I trouble shoot?

no the front is not in power with rear they are seperate. check wire plug (connector) at pump,( i assume pump is mounted on or in reservoir ) with test light for power while a helper depresses the spray switch. check for a blown fuse, check switch, check wiring

Windshield washer stopped working , I think the pump motor is dead, but I do not know how/what is involved in replacing it, or to at least check for 12V at the pump itself, as I can not see the washer...

The washer pump has 12v constant when the key is on. The washer works on a ground, when you pull the
switch it grounds the pump to complete the circuit.
To test for power, locate the green wire that go's down to the pump. With a test light check it for 12v+.
If there's no power, check fuse #25 a 20amp fuse in the fuse block. If you have power, locate the wht/grn
wire to the pump. Clip the test light wire to a pos+
contact and have somone pull the washer switch and
use the probe end of the test light to check the
wht/grn wire if it lights, you have power and ground.
may have to access the washer bottle and pump
from under the car. Hope this helps.

Disconnect windshield washer pump 1984 oldsmobile toronado

Are you certain it's the pump that's hit the fan?

Check your fuses, usually located under the driver's side of the dashboard.

Using a test light, Probe each side of the fuse. If the fuse hasn't blown, you'll have power on both sides of the fuse.

If the fuses are ok, check that you have power TO the washer pump itself, when the wash switch is engaged.

If you've eliminated all of the above, go ahead and replace the washer pump. Find it in the resevoir, disconnect the wiring harness, and clamp off the feed line (so you don't become covered in smurf ****!)

The washer pump will usually pull out with a little effort - somtimes removal of a few clips/hold downs/bolts may be necessary.
