There is a electric motor that pumps washer fluid . Located in the bottom of the washer fluid tank .
Wash Operation (Front and Rear Wipers)
The front and rear washer systems use the same windshield washer fluid pump. When either the front or rear wiper is in the washer position voltage will be supplied to one side of the windshield washer fluid pump (depending on whether it is front or rear), while the other side of the pump is grounded.
At this point, the windshield washer fluid pump sprays solvent onto the windshield. When the front or rear washer is activated, the BCM receives an input from the switch that is activated. The BCM will control the wipers while in the WASH mode. The BCM will control either the front wiper relay or the rear wiper relay to turn on the wipers. The windshield wipers operate at low speed for 3 swipes and returns to the park position.
When turning on the washers do you hear the motor run ? Have some one try it while you listen at the washer fluid tank ! These pump motors do go bad .
turn OFF the ignition.
Disconnect the harness electrical connector of the windshield washer fluid pump.
Connect a test lamp from the windshield washer pump control circuit to a good ground .
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Press the front washer switch.
Does the test lamp illuminate?
YES or NO !
no same tank but two pumps possible clog of line and or nozzle pull hose off nozzle and try to see if fluid squirts if yes use a pin or air or clear nozzle if no fluid possible pump in washer fluid tank shot
try and fill up the washer bottle with water for test and use it. if you hear the pump work keep using it till you see where fluid is leaking out. my guess is a hose is broken and all the fluid is leaking out
sometimes there is, and sometimes there isnt, if there is one it will be on the bottom of your windshield washer tank.. sounds like they fed you a line of **** to me... and if they arent i would take it back and ask them why its doing it again, and why they didnt clean the tank out before... theres something else going on.. either a leak in one of the hoses, your low on fluid, or the pump is weak... i think they fed you a line.. hope this helps
The fluid for both windows comes from the front resivoir. The pump there is suited to pump either to the front or to the rear based upon your operation of the switch & if the rear isn't working, the line will need to be removed near the pump & checked for obstructions.
These can be cleaned with a vacuum tester, the kind that lets you pump the unit & draw a vacuum, connected to the hose, it will draw any debris back out of the tube. You probably don't want to try & force fluid through the hose as it won't fit through the washer nozzle.
check that the jet is not clogged.take a very thin piece of wire,like from a twist tie and clean the hole. maybe the hose is pinched or disconnected.if you spray the rear,you should hear the pump working.i have seen hoses come off and if you spray for 20 seconds,it may leak from the car
Mine had this problem it was the motor on the fluid tank front driver right behind the bumper too the headlight out and there it was had to syphon all the fluid out its a 2 way motor so your front might work but the back wont
the washer pipe will have blown appart.this happens if you opperate the rear washer when it is frozen.it will either be off in the tailgate usually when this happens there is water around the catch when you open the tailgate.or in the headlining in the left rear,have a feel and see if the headlining is wet.to avoid this reoccuring use a good screenwash with frost protection.
check two things - in the engine compartment on the left hand side - behind the air box - there is the feed hose for the rear washer - they come loose for no apparent reason. if this is not it check #15 breaker in the engine electrical panel
