Question about 1997 Ford Explorer AWD
My fluid is full but neither the front or back washer will dispense fluid
you will need to check if you can hear the pump runing when you turn the washerfluid button. if you don't hear the pump
check the fuse in the fusebox
if the fuse ok then the pump might be broken or disconnected
if you have a voltmeter check at the connector if you have 12V when you turn the washerfluid button if you do the pump is broken so replace it
if you don't have 12V at the connector terminals then the pump wire is cutted somewhere
Hope this will help you

Rear washer may have it's own reservoir . Can you hear a pump humming when you activate the washer? Look in the under flooor compartment

Sounds like the pump is nacked. Or it may be a wiring earth fault. Find the wiring connector get a earth/Grong test light. Connect it to the positive and a good earth point on the car have some one work the stalk in the car and see if you got power if not it ll be the fuse, the pump or a busted wire in the line

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".
