2000 Chrysler Sebring windshield washer pump won't squirt n air pressured lines?

So your saying the fluid lines and fittings are not clogged, correct? Next, I have to check voltage and ground for washer pump. If your missing either one, have to track that circuit. Go from there.

The lite green wire at washer motor is voltage and the black wire is ground. If no voltage that will lead back to wiper/washer switch on steering column or the wiring circuit. If your going to work on steering column, make sure you disarm the air bag.

How do i change my signal switch in my 1993 mazda 929

Hi Shannon, befor you dive in and replace the indicator switch I would suggest you check the flasher unit. To replace the indicator switch you will need to remove the steering wheel (this usually means using a puller) Don't forget to punch match marks on the steering wheel and the column which must be aligned when assembling. Remove the steering wheel center cover. then the covers on the steering column Removed the screws (usually four) holding the stalk switch. don't forget to disconnect the battery and the wiring connection to the stalk switch. After replacing the assembly is dismantling. Regards John

I have a 2000 fordwindstar. The left front head light is not working. I already replaced the light bulb. Still not working. You have any Ideas?

This is likely not in the bulb itself but in what they call the "multi function switch" or you may know as the turn signal switch. Relatively easy to change and you should be able to find one at any local salvage yard. I am a repair before replace kind of guy. Don't waste your time. It wont work. New around $100, used around $25 - $45 depending on the salvage yard. I usually do not disconnect the battery cable either so be very careful around ANY yellow electrical harness and do not touch. They are usually labeled as well. Here are the instructions for replacement.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the upper and lower steering column shrouds.
  3. Remove the two self-tapping screws retaining the multifunction switch to the steering column tube.
  4. Remove the multifunction switch.
  5. Label and disconnect the electrical harnesses.


    Fig. Exploded view of the multifunction switch on the steering column

To install:
  1. Connect the electrical harnesses.
  2. Align the multifunction switch mounting holes with the corresponding holes in the steering column tube casting. Install the two self-tapping screws, making sure to start screws in the previously tapped holes. Tighten the screws to 17-26 ft. lbs. (2-3 Nm).
  3. Install the upper and lower steering column shrouds. Tighten the screws to 7-9 inch lbs. (0.7-1.1 Nm).
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

2000 Jeep Cherokee Windshield Washer

You have a motor for the front and rear washer. Check the fuses. If the intermitted wipers does not work, there is a relay under the dash near the steering colum that needs to be replaced.

Fault with saab 9-3 aero

Hello I have a saab 9.3 SS 04 and had the same problem.

- intermittent wipe doesn't work, at all
- windscreen washers don't work, at all
- "normal" continuous, and fast wipe work, but the wipers
freeze in the middle of the windscreen if you let go of the
control stalk, rather than sweeping back to the resting position
- same "freeze" happens with the manual wipe (push down on the control stalk)

The weird thing is that, this morning, for about 10 minutes, it seemed to fix itself,
partially - the washers started working etc - but the intermittent wipe still didn't work. However not long after that it went back to the symptoms described above.
also if I unplugged my car battery for a minute the washers worked for several seconds but again same problem occurs.

Solution is to replace your wiper motor. its that "simple"
worked for me. The wiper motor has a lot of electronic stuff and seems to control the washer engine.
Good luck.
