1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT windshield washer will not squirt water!?

The reservoir is full, no leaks but no fluid is pumped out. I disconnected the fluid line to the wipers under the hood and could **** water out but when activating the spray with the control lever on the column, it would not dispense any fluid. No noise of any kind. Typical problem? Cheap/easy to fix or get to??? Suggestions? Thanks, jtw

Where is the fuse for the water pump for the window washer


A washer pump in a car's windshield wiping system moves washer fluid from a reservoir through hoses. The motorized pump pressurizes the fluid to allow it to be squirted from the hoses through nozzles onto the front and/or rear windshield of a car. The washer fluid helps windshield wipers get rid of rain, dirt, or other objects that can interfere with a driver's visibility. If your washer fluid is not being sent out when activated, the solution could simply be filling the washer system's reservoir with more fluid or cleaning the nozzles and hoses. In more severe cases, the washer pump may need to be replaced. Here are steps to troubleshoot a windshield-washer pump.

Windshield washer fliud does not squirt in my car


first try getting to a source of compressed air,with it regulated to a low pressure so as not to blow lines off blow into the top hole on the reservoir and force fluid thru the hoses,a lot of times the hoses or sprayers on the wipers get dirt in them and cant pass the fluid,also blow back thru the sprayers to see f this helps

Windshield Washer Pump Works But No Fluid Flow


May be the resevoir bottle may have something stuck in it, you are right, you may have a clogged line. Also check the routing of the hoses to the squirt that they are not pinched or kinked. Any washer fuild leaking anywhere?

Windshield washer will not squirt


Make sure you have water or windshield wiper fluid in the reserve (open your hood and add more, look for a blue plastic cap) if you hear it humming when you turn it on then the pump is working. Also check the little nozzles on the hood (one on each side) and see if they are clogged, stick a small safety pin into the holes and move it in and out to free up ant debris inside that may stop the water from squirting out

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.
