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 !

Washer pump doesnt work or run on front. back works fine, same pump and fuse for both


Look at the hose's could be cracked or for that matter could be off somewhere !
Washer Pump/Motor- The reversible electric washer pump/motor unit is located in a dedicated hole on the lower outboard side of the washer reservoir, on the left side of the cooling module fan shroud. This single reversible washer pump/motor provides washer fluid to either the front or rear washer system plumbing, depending upon the direction of the pump motor rotation.

My windshield washers do not work on my 2006 Dodge Caravan SXT. No fuse in front/rear washer slot but worked before. Slot has no prongs in it. There is no humming sound when washer button is pressed....


The easist thing to do would be to access the washer pump. It will be mounted on the washer bottle. you will likely have to remove the inner fender/splash shield to gain access. once unplugged use a volt meter to check for power and ground at the connector. have a helper turn the washer on. if you see power than the washer pump is the most likely problem. If memory serves correctly this pump will have two hoses attached to it. The pump rotates in opposite directions depending on whether you want washer fluid on the front or rear window. It does this via the front IPM (integrated power module) which reverses polarity on the two pins to spin the pump in one direction or the other.

Need instructions for replacing my window washer pump on my '06 hyundai sonata, please?


You'll need to remove the two retainers from the front portion of the right front fender liner. Then pull the front portion away from the bumper cover and fender to expose the washer pump. To remove the pump, simply unplug it and pull out of the washer bottle.

If you have less than 60,000 miles on the car, I'd recommend taking it to the dealer for warranty service

I have a 2005 Vibe. The rear washer works but the front washer doesn't. Is there a seperate washer pump for the front and back washers?


Yes there is a seperate pump and a seperate reservor. Check the front resevor to make sure it has washer fluid in it. If it does then most likely the pump is bad or unplugged.

Water not comeing out of washer front r back cant hear pump sound


check the wiring to the washer pump - its on the bottom of the washer bottle, disconnect the connector to the rear washer pump (do them both) and clean up the contacts with sandpaper - you can try swapping the connectors over and see if the front washer connector will power the rear washer, if so the problem is a fuse or the rear washer switch is broken.
Tell me how you get on and I'll advise further.
This way you can prove both pumps work, if the rear pump wont work off the front pump cable then the pump is at fault and needs replacing.

REMOVAL

  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2. Remove the engine fresh air housing inside the engine compartment.
  3. Disconnect the washer hose at the in-line connector forward of the cowl grille so that the in-line connector remains with the washer hose from the fresh air plenum.
  4. Disconnect the washer hose from the hose clip located on the front fender side shield.
  5. Remove the filler tube screw.
  6. Hoist and support vehicle on hoist or jack stands.
  7. Remove the right front wheel and tire assembly.
  8. Disconnect the left right front wheelhouse splash shield and move aside.
  9. Drain washer fluid from the reservoir and into a suitable clean container. This can be done by disconnecting the windshield washer hose from the front (outboard) washer pump and allowing the washer fluid to drain into a container through a temporary jumper hose connected to the front washer pump.

98 Cherokee Front Washer Pump Inop, rear pump o-k, Same Pump?


Different pumps. They are both located side by side on the bottom of the washer reservoir.
They are cheap and easy to replace, or just move the wires from one to the other, then your front will work and not the rears.
