I have had the pump tested and it works. I was told it could be a fuse problem. The washer fluid fuse is not in the box under the hood or in the panel under the dr5ivers side dash near the emergency brake.

Re: washer fluid does not squirt out
It should be under the dash. Check your owner's manual. Most fuses run more than one thing. Read carefully. If you don't have a manual, just use a test light, grounded to the door hinge. Touch the light to each side of each fuse at the back where you see silver.(without unplugging them) With the key on, there should be power to each side of the fuse. If not, then that's your bad one.

use a test light to check the fuse as this fuse runs other items. check for power and ground at the washer pump it could be bad/corroded. if you have power and ground at the pump then replace the washer pump. I would start at the pump as these give the most common problem. also make sure the washer hose/spray nozzles are not plugged up with dirt.
Investigation is the only way to find out what is happening, suspect items are pick up screen, discharge nozzels and pump. a quick test is to pull the hoses from the squirt nozzles, and see if fluid will pump. Frozen fluid will not pump.
Make sure it is above 2 degrees centigrade and not frozen.
Check and fill up fluid reservoir with wash solution.
If there is any evidence of mould growth in the bottle - it needs removing and the bottle and pump washing out.
Check operation of pump by supplying 12V to connectors.
Test pump connectors in car for 12V supply (clip on test lamp)
Check fuse in fusebox.
The problem should be easily found by checking these points.
If pump makes noise we know it has power, first unplug the hose closest to the washer pump, if water squirts out you have a good pump, then follow the lines to the nozzles where they squirt out if all hoses are OK clean the nozzles most of the time they get clogged if it didn't squirt our replace the pump
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
They use same fuse, See if you hear it running when you depress the washer button. If not, check for power at the Dark Blue Wire at the washer pump. If it has power, and the Brown wire is grounded. then the washer pump should work, if it doesnt , replace the pump. The washer pump Dark Blue wire shoul dbe hot and the switch grounds the Brown wire.
with the aid of either pulling fuse by fuse and visually inspecting it for being unbroken-or look for it on the panel guide for the # of the fuse maby under accessories...or the aid of a test light test the top and bottom of each fuse to ensure good proper continuity as well as make sure they are properly seated in position as well the motor /( pump ) often goes bad and are merely a few dollars however again check for power at the motor it is attached to a large white container and will say washer fluid only the pump itself is connected there has two wires ground to the battery with test light and the other to the red wire have someone turn or use the squirt-er function while penetrating to the wire itself for power check these areas 1st
it's likely the tiny motor/pump located at the bottom of the tank that has failed. to confirm this have some turn on the washer fluid switch and test for voltage at the pump. there are several aftermarket pumps you can use as a replacement.
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.
