Question about Cars & Trucks
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.

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.

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.

go to a service station with an air compressor and with the air turned down to about 20 lbs blow into the washer top small hole to force fluid thru the hoses,not a lot of pressure so you blow hoses off or rupture something

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
