SOURCE: 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.

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 !

Windshield washer fluid not spraying


Sounds to me part of the tubing is frozen shut from the pump to nozzle, nozzle may be clogged as well. The pump motor might run, but pump on the end faulty. Remove tubing from pump and see if it squirts out, if so replace tubing to pump and remove tubing from nozzle on hood or wiper, check to see if it squirts from there. IF it does then your nozzle is clogged with wax or ice.

1995 saturn My windshield washer doesn't squirt fluid. Which fuse should I check? What else should I look at?


This reply falls under, " what else should I look at."

When you press to squirt, do you hear any sound? if you do there are 3 easy things you can do.

1. Some of the windshield wiper reserviors, ( plastic bottles ), need a minimumlevel of fluid to operate, so, make sure you fill up your reservior.

If that doesn't help;
2. There is a very small hose that runs from the reservior to the pump, pull it off of the pump end, very carefully, and have someone hit the squirter.

If fluid comes through the hose;
3. Take a very small paper clip, straighten one end out, and push it into the ports that the water shoots out of to squirt the windshield.
Sometimes wax or debree can clogg these very little holes.

My 96 Jeep GC windshield washer isn't squirting. I can hear it run when pushing the washer button and I hear fluid running ; but it doesn't spray on the windshield. Also , my wiper blade in the rear window...


your rear wiper motor might be faulty,in the front i would check your fluid level-if it is full and you hear the pump running-check your washer lines to see if they are pinched-usually around where the hood closes

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 wiper fluid won't squirt


When you pull the lever to activate the windshield washers, do you hear any type of sound coming from under the hood?  A whirring sound should be heard from the little electric pump that feds the washers.
If you can hear the whir, then you should look for a possible clog in the washer hoses (there is more than one...).
If you cannot hear the whirr, then you should check the fuse that protects the windshield washer circuit.  Check your owner's manual for the location and correct amperage for this circuit.
Good luck!
