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.

2002 Honda Odyssey van, the windshield washer doesn't squirt fluid or wipe the wipers, though the windshield wipers work separately . . . . how to fix?


Sounds like you may need to change the washer fluid pump. They do go bad. It's located inside the washer fluid reservoir, which is in the front of the passenger's side wheel well, behind the front bumper.

1995 saturn My windshield washer doesn't squirt fluid. Which fuse should I check? What else should I look at?


This reply falls under, " what else should I look at."

When you press to squirt, do you hear any sound? if you do there are 3 easy things you can do.

1. Some of the windshield wiper reserviors, ( plastic bottles ), need a minimumlevel of fluid to operate, so, make sure you fill up your reservior.

If that doesn't help;
2. There is a very small hose that runs from the reservior to the pump, pull it off of the pump end, very carefully, and have someone hit the squirter.

If fluid comes through the hose;
3. Take a very small paper clip, straighten one end out, and push it into the ports that the water shoots out of to squirt the windshield.
Sometimes wax or debree can clogg these very little holes.

Windshield wiper fluid does not squirt out


go to a service station with an air compressor and with the air turned down to about 20 lbs blow into the washer top small hole to force fluid thru the hoses,not a lot of pressure so you blow hoses off or rupture something

My windshield wipers work but I cant squirt windshield cleaner


it's likely the tiny motor/pump located at the bottom of the tank that has failed. to confirm this have some turn on the washer fluid switch and test for voltage at the pump. there are several aftermarket pumps you can use as a replacement.

Windshield wiper fluid won't squirt


When you pull the lever to activate the windshield washers, do you hear any type of sound coming from under the hood?  A whirring sound should be heard from the little electric pump that feds the washers.
If you can hear the whir, then you should look for a possible clog in the washer hoses (there is more than one...).
If you cannot hear the whirr, then you should check the fuse that protects the windshield washer circuit.  Check your owner's manual for the location and correct amperage for this circuit.
Good luck!

Windshield wiper fluid pump not working


Pump usually located at the bottom of tank.If not, follow hose...pump will be nearby. To check, remove hose at pump and then activate it. If fluid squirts out, check hoses and squirt nozzles for obstructions. If nothing comes out check screen for pump inside tank.

Windsheild Wiper Fluid will not squirt on windshield


While you were filling the tank you may have disconnected the pump wires. If you can hear the pump activating when you use the switch then the pump may have gotten clogged , check for sediment in the tank.  For the person with the mustang - if its only coming out of one side then its a nozzle clogged or a pinched hose.
