Get someone to work the wiper washer while you take the refill cap off and listen you should hear the washer pump if it is working. You probably just have a busted wiper washer hose or blown fuse

What fuse is the washer fluid on a 1998 pontiac sunfire?

the wwasher pump is on the same fuse as the windshield wipers so if the wiper work than the fuse is fine.

Check for power at the washer pump on the red wire. It should have twelve volts any time the washer switch is pressed. Make sure the ground wire (black) is good. If there is power and the ground is good than the pump is bad.

If there is no power than the switch is bad or there is an open in the red wire from the switch to the pump. You should be able to find that red wire on the back of the switch if there is power there when you press the switch than the wire is open. If there is no power on that wire on the back of the switch than the switch is bad.

More than likley it is the pump that has failed.

My lowbeams/running headlights are not working but my high beams are?? My car is a 1999 sunfire sedan.

they have a problem with the forward lighting harness. Where the harness runs by the washer fluid tank there are 3 splice packs and they rott out all the time. You may have to remove the connector from under the body and the washer tank to gain access.

Windshield washer does not pump fluid

The pump works off the same circuit as the wipers, so it would be same fuse. Most likely the pump is no bad.
