    Is the button for wash on the stick? If so try to push the stick in toward the column when pressing the button...If it helps, the cam switch may be bad....But i would start with fuses

I would suggest making sure everything is connected right just to be safe? Last time I thought nothing was wrong my wiper flew off while in the parking lot luckily. But if everything looks correct could be a fuse maybe? Id suggest just going in and getting it checked if you are worried or need it.

More than likely a fuse if you do not hear it.

How to operate window wiper on back door

lost the operators guide?
the 2003 book is not on the jeep board now...

pdf page 203

Rear Window Wiper/Washer
A rotary ring switch on the control lever, located on the
right side of the steering column, controls operation of
the rear wiper/washer function. Rotating the center of
the switch up to the DEL (Delay) position or the ON
position will activate the wiper. Rotating the switch ring
beyond the ON or OFF position will activate the rear
washer. The wash pump will continue to operate as long
as the lever or ring is engaged. Upon release, the wipers
will cycle three times before returning to the set position.

1996 horn doesn't work but alarm does

I had to go to a salvage yard and purchase an air bag (which include the horn contacts) to repair my horn. The wiper washer could be a list of things. Does your fluid run out on the ground? - broken washer hose? Listen by your lower right front fender behind the wheel and have someone push your washer lever and see if you can hear the pump running. If not, could be a pump motor (check with a test light after pulling the inner fender) or the multi-function lever in the steering column.

Window washing fluid pump isn't working. Hums and runs, but no fluid comes out. Any ideas?

1. the washer fluid jets are plugged possibly and will not allow fluid to discharge. Take a small wire or needle and stick into the jet end where the fluid comes out and it should spray after that if that is the issue.
2. the lines coming from the washer pump could be broken or cut open. Remove the line at the back of the spray jet either at the hood or at the wiper arm, then attempt to spray the wiper fluid. If it does not spray then there is an open/broken line coming from the washer pump or the pump may have a problem. If fluid is coming out of the line, the jet again is plugged up. Also check to see that fluid is going into the washer pump (locating the pump and getting to it is sometimes not so easy depending on where the mfg put the pump).

What fuse controls the washer fluid pump?

On some older cars the washer motor circuit is tied into the wiper circuit, so the large fuse or relay for the wipers also controls the washer motor.
Don't know about your car, but you could take the connector off your washer motor and check for power there, when someone holds the washer pump switch on, and key on.

1996 buick windshield washer will not turn on. Plenty of fluid, hoses ok, port (squirter) to windshield is not plugged. Pump is not trying to push any liquid. No blown fuses.Wipers work fine. Everything...

Have someone press or hold the washer switch and listen underhood for a small pump sound {Hum}. If you don't hear a small hum you probably need a new washer fluid pump, pretty common for this old of a car. Imagine for the last 15 years sitting in wet fluid,sometimes drying out, getting refilled, turned on and off, on and off that little pump had it's day and retired! Most auto parts stores sell inexpensive replacements. Easily come out and go back in in reverse order. Pumps are usually mounted underside of fluid tank,just follow any visible washer hose.

The buzzing is from the washer pump, probably just a broken hose. The wiper motor needs replaced. it is under the grill that the wiper blades connect at. several screws to remove along the top and bottom. The linkage either pops off or there is a clip to remove. Three bolts for the motor.

Windshield washers not pumping water to windshield

The most common problem I find in this season, is having summer 32 deg. F freezing windshield wiper fluid in the tank rather than -20 deg. F freezing windshield wiper fluid.

Try to warm up the car by parking it in a heated garage until the windshield wiper fluid thaws. Then, try to use it all up, and add the 'winter' vs. the 'summer' formula of windshield wiper fluid.

If this does not solve the problem, the pump might be burnt out, in my experience.

You should hear a humming sound as you depress the button for windshield wiper fluid inside of the car.

Good luck on this repair.

First, make sure that you are using a seperate switch to activate the rear wiper fluid than you are for the front.

You activate the front window fluid by pulling the lever toward you, while you activate the rear window fluid by twisting the end of the lever all the way up or down as far as it will go (It will return from these positions automatically). If it still doesn't work, you should have someone stand at the back of the vehicle when you activate it to make sure they hear the sound of the washer fluid pump working (key must be in on position for this test).

If it is, check to make sure the nozzle is not clogged. Also make sure that it's not leaking out of the back door due to the hose inside the door becoming disconnected.

If it's not working, then your rear pump motor is burned out and needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps!

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!
