If you verified there is power at the pump then the pump is either clogged or you have a bad pump.

    Also, check that the lines going from the pump to the windshield jets are clear. The clog could be in one of those lines and the pump can't get the liquid through.

SOURCE: AUDI A6 WINDOW PROBLEMS

This is a common problem with the C5 A6 models. Before you replace the fuse for the windows (I think it's number 14, but i don't have a manual in front of me - Anyway, it's the 10A fuse that's blown!) Look under the back of both front seats and you'll see a light that illuminates the floor for the back seats. Rem ove the light from each seat by prying it out with a flat screwdriver and disconnect both leads. Replace the fuse, and your windows (moon roof and interior lights as well) should now work. The lumbar support causes something to short out the lights. I've tried insulating the lights on mine, but the problem always comes back so I just disconnected them altogether.

SOURCE: windshield washer stopped working,wiper work fine

First check to make sure wiper fluid is full even if you just filled it they tend to get leaks, then make sure the pump is working. Have someone activate it while listening closely to pump. The main cause though is usually clogged or broken hoses, and even the part that sprays it out usually gets deposits that clog them. pull a line off see if it sprays out the hose if so, sometimes you can clean out the spryers with a paper clip or something that fits, however most the time you have to replace them.

SOURCE: Turn signals not working audi a6 2002

turn signal switch most likely. But it could have a faulty flasher relay. the signals and the hazards probably have seperate flasher relays and possibly on different circuits so check fuses as well

Which fuse controls front windshield wiper pump


Do the wipers work ? Fuse for wipers is same as washer pump .
Principles of Operation
The wiper motors receive inputs from the following:
  • Multi-function switch
  • Powertrain control module (PCM)
  • Ignition switch
  • Smart junction box (SJB)
The following components are integrated in the wiper motors:
  • Windshield wiper motor module
  • High/low speed relay
  • Run/park relay
  • Washer pump relay
  • Park sense (Hall-effect sensor)
Washer System
The windshield washer and the rear window washer are activated by the internal wiper motor modules when it receives a ground from the multi-function switch between the washer inputs. Depending on the correct ground, the internal wiper motor modules activate either the windshield washer or rear window washer relays (internal) by grounding the respective relay coil. When either module is activated, it connects voltage to the washer pump while the deactivated module provides ground to the washer pump. In this manner, voltage polarity is reversible to achieve directional change of the washer pump and washer fluid.
  • The washer pump is inoperative
  • Circuitry
  • Washer pump
  • Multi-function switch
  • Windshield wiper motor
  • Rear window wiper motor

Does your expedition have programmable/recall memory option for seats an mirrors ?
Driver Seat Module
The power driver seat and power exterior mirrors are controlled by the driver seat module (DSM) only when the vehicle is equipped with the programmable/recall memory option.
On the Expedition Limited, the power fold exterior mirror option is controlled by the DSM. Before running a self-test or retrieving codes, the power fold switch must be inactive for at least 30 seconds.
This is a complex vehicle , electronics , control modules an serial data communication networks. You mite be better off taking it to the dealer or some other repair shop . There could be DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the SJB - body control module !

Normal Operation During normal operation, when the front wiper wash is selected, the windshield wiper motor provides power to the washer pump through circuit CRW14 (BU/WH) and ground is provided to the washer pump through circuit CRW12 (GY/OG) and the rear wiper motor. If rear wiper wash is selected, the rear wiper motor provides power to the washer pump through circuit CRW12 (GY/OG) and ground is provided to the washer pump through circuit CRW14 (BU/WH) and the windshield wiper motor.
    Possible Causes
  • Multi-function switch
  • Open in circuit CRW14 (BU/WH), CRW12 (GY/OG), CRW07 (GY/BN), CRW20 (GY/YE), SBB49 (RD) or GD149 (BK/GY)
  • Short to ground in circuit CRW14 (BU/WH), CRW12 (GY/OG), CRW07 (GY/BN) or CRW20 (GY/YE)
  • Washer pump
  • Windshield wiper motor
  • Rear wiper motor

How do I change the windshield washer pump on 2002 kia optima


Windshield washer pumps are attached to the windshield washer fluid container. Remove that container and look for the washer pump. That is the only item with two wires connected to it. First remove hose connected to the washer pump and turn the washer switch on. IF water flows from the washer, your water lines are clogged, if no water flows, your washer pump maybe dead or there is no power going to the washer pump.

Try testing IF current is passing/present at the two wires by connecting as continuity tester or simply a small lamp. Switch the washer on and see if the bulb gets lit, if it does, there is power and your problem is the washer pump itself. Replace the pump.

Some type of fluid leaking around the left front tire


Had a similar issue. The leak though, in front of the left-front tire was the windshield washer pump seal. Check to see if that fluid is washer fluid. If so, then thats likely the problem.

Location of windshield washer pump


I have yet to see the car made after 1980 which does not have that pump built into the bottom of the reservoir. i am sure that car is out there, nonetheless and audi may well be that car. in case i am wrong take a look at the bottom of the washer reservoir and see if there aren't two wires plugged in and a hose coming out. if that is where it is, the next step is to jumper the battery directly to the plugs to make sure the pump is not working. if the pump works your problem is elsewhere, like the switch. if the pump does not work call a dealer and ask them if it can be replaced without buying a whole new reservoir assembly. if the pump is not inside the reservoir then just follow the hose, it has to find the pump eventually.

HI, if its under the offside front wing, this is where to windscreen fluid bottle is, sounds like you have a leaking pipe or bottle that expands when warm allowing the water out, could of frozen in the bad weather etc causing a small crack.. if it just the end of the pipe that fits on the water pump, snip it off and push it back on, good luck.

Windshield sprayer won't work


when you turn on the sprayer you should hear a pump motor running, try this with the engine off and key on so u can hear better. if u dont hear the pump then check the fuse if its ok then u will need a new windshield washer pump. if the pump is running when u activate it check for a leak in the lines. if you hold the washer button down long enough and the pump is running then you will see washerfluid leaking from somewhare. have hood raised when doing this so you can see better.
