Question about 2005 Toyota Highlander

1 Answer

Washer fluid spray direction is too low

Washer fluid sprays at the bottom of the window below the point where the wipers can catch the spray. This is a solid stream so there is plenty of water pressure. I brought it to the repair shop and they could not fix the angle of the spray. I tried to put a pin in the nozzle to angle it upwards but it does not want to budge, and of course, I did not want to break the nozzle by applying too much pressure. Please help.

    The first thing to do is to trace the small washer fluid line (hose) from the wiper back to the washer fluid container. Be sure there is no kinks in the line, and that closing the hood does not pinch the line. This happened to me and it was a very simple fix that saved me the time and expense of having some repair shop needlessly replace the motor.

Looks like the washer motor has failed. Remove the lower plactic trim under the washer bottle & check to see if the connector is plugged in to the motor. Also check to see if there is power to the motor with the switch depressed. If you have power, you need a washer motor. Common failure if the washer fluid freezes once. Ice gets inside the motor & expands, breaking the internal housing and ruins the motor.

You seem to have the motor not working or there is not any power going to the washer pump motor. Check the fuse in the box first.

SOURCE: rear windshield washer works but front does

Probably need to replace the pump. Separate pumps for front and rear. Check with a test light to see if there is power to the pump. If it has power but won't work, replace the pump. If no power, you have a wiring issue. Be sure to turn the switch on and have someone push the washer button when you are checking for power. There won't be any until you push it to "wash".

In my 2007 Saturn Vue there is what I think is an air pump which is cracked that one port is not connected to anything.


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 !

Washer fluid on front


Sounds like one of your nozzles is clogged to me. Try this.....Get a spray can of air, like the computer air spray. Stick the long air can nozzle into the spray nozzle. Shoot some air back into the system and see if it frees your clog. When my fluid gets low, mine will get gunk in it and clog to the point of not spraying at all. Compressed air usually does the trick. If not, remove and clean or replace the nozzles.

Window washing fluid pump isn't working. Hums and runs, but no fluid comes out. Any ideas?


1. the washer fluid jets are plugged possibly and will not allow fluid to discharge. Take a small wire or needle and stick into the jet end where the fluid comes out and it should spray after that if that is the issue.
2. the lines coming from the washer pump could be broken or cut open. Remove the line at the back of the spray jet either at the hood or at the wiper arm, then attempt to spray the wiper fluid. If it does not spray then there is an open/broken line coming from the washer pump or the pump may have a problem. If fluid is coming out of the line, the jet again is plugged up. Also check to see that fluid is going into the washer pump (locating the pump and getting to it is sometimes not so easy depending on where the mfg put the pump).

Rear window washer does not spray fluid. When I push the rear window washer button, the front washer/wipers turn on. The rear wipers work normally.


I have the same problem with my 2000 chevy blazer as skornec had posted. I kinda already figured the hose or spray nozzle was plugged. But the problem with checking those items is that I don't know where the hose is located to the back wiper. And the only thing that could be I see that could be the spray nozzle doesn't even have holes that washer fluid could spray from. So basically I just would LOVE if someone could please inform this lame brain of where to find the spray nozzle on the rear window and where in the interior of my blazer does the washer hose run.

Windshield wiper sprayers


This could be 2 things.

First of all, check for any debris blocking the sprayer holes.

Secondly, open the hood and make sure the hose running from the washer fluid tank is connected to the bottom of the sprayer.

Washer fluid not working


There is a fluid "pump" that is generally below the washer fluid reservoir under the hood. To check if the pump is bad try to spray some fluid and have someone listen under the hood while you are doing this. If they hear a hum or the system sounds like it is active but you are getting no fluid spraying out then you probably have a kink or stoppage. The spray nozzles are right below the windshield wipers and sometimes a piece of debris has lodged itself in. You can take a safety pin or something similar and try to get it out that way. If not you may have to take the hose apart and clean it that way. Hope this works for you.

Windshield Wipers won't spray 2004 Rav4


I think the dealer is mistaken, the is a washer jar for the front and one for the rear. be sure fluid is pure, and undiluted. clean out front washer jar, if it has been contaminated with any wrong fluid it will never flush it self out. Second point is front washer pump may have minor seal concern that is only apparent when cold. if first step does not cure, I would recommend repalcing pump. Keep me posted
