Look in the fuse panel to visibly check for blown fuse. Each manufacturer hides the fuses in a different place - sometimes under the dash panel, sometimes behind an ash tray or change compartment, sometimes in the glove box. The panel should have a fuse layout diagram with the rated amps for each use - usually 10, 15, 20 or 30. When you find the blown fuse replace with a new one of the same amp rating - too low and it will blow. Too high and you could damage the wiring if there's a short. Before I went crazy tracing fuses, check the plug on the washer motor. I would unplug it, clean the contacts with a spray cleaner and replace.
Or maybe the pump motor has gone bad. Electronics Goldmine sells washer pump motors very cheaply. One of them may fit.
It sounds as if the windshield washer pump, located at the base of the windshield washer fluid reservoir, has lost it's seal. When this occurs, washer fluid seeps into the pump and shorts it out. I advise that you remove the pump to confirm this before replacing the fuse. A replacement wind washer pump and fuse can be found at your dealer, local auto parts store or the internet (Rockauto.com has always been a great source for quality parts at a very competitive price and I use them all the time). Hope this helps.
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...
Why are you looking for the fuse? Are your washers not working? Did you check to see if you had power at the washer pump motor? If there is power present, there is no need to find the fuse. Washer pump motor failures are common. It is also possible that the fluid in your reservoir could be frozen. (I don't know where you live, but for the most of U.S. it is winter and COLD!) Replacing a blown fuse will not fix your car until you find out why the fuse blew in the first place. Simply replacing the fuse will only serve to make you spend money on another fuse.
This sounds like the fuse for the turn signal/washer has blown. I've had a similar problem that traced back to the washer pump. Replace the fuse and just "bump" the washer switch. If the washer doesn't turn on, don't hold it on or it will blow the fuse again. You'll need to replace the washer pump. In the meantime before your pump replacement, your turn signals will work again.
First you should check the fuse might be blown, sometimes people use a lesser quality fluid and it freezes causing the pump to blow the fuse .if not that then remove the washer fluid tank and you will find pump on the bottom.not difficult.
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.
