Remove the small tube that's attached to the fluid tank and press the wash button.
1 - If fluid isn't gushing out take out the connector to the pump and connect a light bulb to it. If the bulb lights up when you press the button the pump either is busted (replace it) or its connectors are corroded (clean them).
2 - if the fluid is gushing out then it's a blockage somewhere down the line; put the tube back in the tank, find and disconnect the other end, press the button. If it doesn't work then you have found the culprit - replace it. If it does flow then continue till you locate the blocked part.

disconnect the connector and have a friend push the washer button while you check the wires for power with a test light.its probably a bad motor, they are about $15.00

check the wiring to the washer pump - its on the bottom of the washer bottle, disconnect the connector to the rear washer pump (do them both)
and clean up the contacts with sandpaper -
you can try swapping the connectors over and see if the front washer connector will power the rear washer, if so the problem is a fuse or the rear washer switch is broken.
Tell me how you get on and I'll advise further.
This way you can prove both pumps work, if the rear pump wont work off the front pump cable then the pump is at fault and needs replacing.

Yes there are two pumps located in the wiper fluid reservoir. If your in a bind, you can switch the plugs and small hose that go to them because they are both the same. The upper pump operates the back, and the lower pump operates the front. The back won't work until it gets replaced, but it beats driving backwards.

In my experience i would say its the pump. But if you look in your owners manual there will be a fuse diagram. From there you can check the fuse. Also if you know where the fuse boxes are located you can look on the backside of the lid that closes the fuse box there is a diagram. That will help you locate the fuse. If you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks, Midwest-tek
