SOURCE: Washer spray on back windshield

i've actually had this issue with one of my cars. there are tiny spray nossles, that can pivot, from which the water shoots out of to hit the windshield. you need to find something slim and sharp like a bobby pin and place the tip into the exit hole where the water shoots out. gently pivot the nossle towards the area where you want the water to hit the wind shield. be careful not to push the pin too much into the nossle. you may warp the nossle tip and the water my spray out in an undesireable fashion.

SOURCE: windshield washer fluid is not being pumped out

Has it got to below freezing in your area recently? If so, your fluid is probably frozen and will need to be replaced. That is the only thing I can think of. It happened to me recently! Good luck I hope this helps

SOURCE: Windshield washer fluid pump quit. 2005 Jetta

I have a 2003 Jetta and the fuse box is between the dashboard and the drivers side door. There is a lid that covers it on the dashboard side. Inside there is a diagram/fuse card. The card has one top rectangular series of fuses numbered 8 through 23. Below is a square series numbered 24 through 44. The washer fuse is number 24 on the top left of the bottom square series. For me, I checked the fuse and it was good, therefore I am assuming that my pump is dead.

SOURCE: My windshield washer pump works,but no fluid on

Try to have someone stand outside the car as you try the washer, to see if it's leaking out ,you may have a cracked washer hose.if that's not it ,try sticking a pin in the eye where the fluid is supposed to come out ,sometimes they get clogged.

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 !

Tip

Adding windshield washer fluid to Buick Lacrosse 2005


When the windshield washer fluid is low, a low washer fluid light may appear on the instrument panel cluster. In addition, if your vehicle is equipped with a Driver Information Center (DIC), the LOW WASHER FLUID message will appear when the fluid level is low. When you need windshield washer fluid, be sure to read the manufactures instructions before use. If you will be operating your vehicle in an area where the temperature may fall bellow freezing, use a fluid that has sufficient protection against freezing.

Where is the fuse for the water pump for the window washer


A washer pump in a car's windshield wiping system moves washer fluid from a reservoir through hoses. The motorized pump pressurizes the fluid to allow it to be squirted from the hoses through nozzles onto the front and/or rear windshield of a car. The washer fluid helps windshield wipers get rid of rain, dirt, or other objects that can interfere with a driver's visibility. If your washer fluid is not being sent out when activated, the solution could simply be filling the washer system's reservoir with more fluid or cleaning the nozzles and hoses. In more severe cases, the washer pump may need to be replaced. Here are steps to troubleshoot a windshield-washer pump.

I cannot find where to fill the rear windshield washer.


All washer fluid comes from the same reservoir. If your not getting washer fluid to the rear washer, it could either be a plugged or broken washer fluid line, or rear washer fluid pump.
