Subaru Tribeca: Front screen washer doesn't work

I'm unable to locate the fuse for the front washer.when I activate it, the wipers go but no fluid comes nor do I hear the motor 'churn'. I just bought this 2007 vehicle used and realized this issue AFTER purchase. Does anyone know which fuse runs this? Any other thoughts?

SOURCE: Windshield washers not working

I wouldn't worry about tracing the hose just yet, most likely it's a bad pump. Find the wire(s) going to the pump, usually on the bottom of the reservoir and connect a test light to a good ground. Then have someone try to 'squirt' the washer fluid while you touch the test light 'probe' to the pump's wire connector. If it lights but no fluid squirts, it's bad. They are cheap and usually very easy to replace. If it doesn't light there's a brake in the circuit somewhere. (bad fuse, bad connector, etc.) Good luck.

SOURCE: The windshield washer fluid isnt coming out for

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.

WHERE IS THE WIPER/WASHER FUSE LOCATED ON 2007 PONTIAC TORRENT


In the under hood fuse box , should have diagram inside the lid . Front wiper's or rear ? Front fuse # 36 - 25 amp. Plus Two relay's PCB hi and Wiper PCB relay . Wouldn't think this being fuse problem . Wiper switch , motor etc... The wiper's are control by a computer . BCM - body control module .

The windshield wiper/washer system consists of front and rear wipers. The front and rear wipers are operative when the vehicle is in accessory or run. The front wipers have 4 different modes: Mist, Intermittent, Low, and High. When the front wipers are in the intermittent mode, there are 5 delay modes to chose from, commanded by the windshield wiper washer switch through the body control module (BCM). The rear wipers has an only one mode.

If the fuse is bad , could have a short to ground or wiper motor pulling to much current (amps) . Fuse's don't just blow for no reason ! Could also have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the BCM .

DTC B3873

DTC B3715 02: Front Wiper Relay Drive Circuit Short to Ground
The body control module (BCM) controls the wiper motor based on input from the windshield wiper washer switch. The BCM monitors the wiper washer switch through three separate signal circuits and a ground circuit. The windshield wiper switch high signal circuit is used to determine high speed wiper operation, the windshield wiper switch low signal is used to determine low speed, intermittent, and mist operation through the use of a resistor ladder, and windshield washer switch signal circuit is used to determine washer operation.
The BCM controls the windshield wiper motor through two output controls, controlling two different PCB relays which control the desired wiper speed, high or low.

The PCB relay's are non- servicable , replace fuse box . Soldered in Your best bet mit be to take it to a qualified repair shop .

Where is the fuse for the front windshield washer motor


If you are just talking about the windshield washer pump/motor that squirts water on the front windshield, there is no separate fuse for that pump. If you are talking about the front windshield wipers themselves then the fuse for that (including the washer pump) is located is the fuse panel inside the vehicle down below and to the left of the steering wheel. Below is a diagram of the fuse layout (first picture) and I marked the 10 amp fuse for the system. As I said if you are talking about the pump/squirter motor there is no separate fuse. Inside the wiper motor itself (located basically on the firewall on the drivers side) is an internal microprocessor as well as an internal relay for that pump. If the processor or the relay is bad, both are internal and the whole wiper motor assy. has to be replaced. It's one complete unit. There is a chance that the pump motor itself could be bad. In the second picture is a breakdown of the washer fluid reservoir. In order to get access at it which is where the washer pump motors are located the right front wheel and splash guard have to be removed. I have marked the 2 washer pump motors which are mounted on the reservoir. I cannot tell you which motor is which but the one for the front has 2 wires at the connector (a black & white wire and a black wire) The rear pump motor has a violet & light green wire and a black wire at its connector. That's how you can tell which one is which. You can test the motor by either pulling it out and applying direct power and ground to it to see if it engauges or while someone is engauging the washer inside the vehicle while you are down there, see if you are geting power at the black and white wire. Check that wire while it is disconnected and using a good separate ground. If you are getting power make sure the black wire is geting a good ground. If all is good (ground & power) than more than likely the pump motor is bad. If you have a power supply problem at the black & white wire than you are looking at most likely a bad wiper motor assy but check for an open power wire from the wiper motor to the pump motor. It's not quite as simple as it used to be. The wiper motor on your vehicle has like a mini computer in it. I'm gonna say the washer pump motor is bad which is the most common. Hope I was able to help and that I didn't get too technical on you but things are not like the old days with separate motors (wiper and washer).
