My washer fluid won't spray.


Make sure the container is full.
Stand very near the container and have someone attempt to use the washer spray and listen for the sound of the pump to make sure it's working.
If not working, either blown fuse or faulty washer pump.

If it is making noise, you can look on the underside of the hood near the windshield for the washer hoses where they go into the hood.
Carefully pull a hose off and try the sprayer again.

If you get water pumping out, the clog is at the hood nozzles. That can usually be cleared out with a thin sewing needle or a single piece of wire cut off a large wire brush.

If no water came out of the hose you removed, you will need to remove the washer fluid reservoir (large bottle, usually hidden pretty deep into the fender/bumper and drain it, then check for clogs at the washer pump screen.

Cadillac sts 2006 window washer fluid does not work when you push button


Orange wire is voltage, black wire is ground. You should be able to use test light to check both. If you have good voltage and ground at windshield washer pump, then, I agree with Micheal, the pump is bad.
The spray nozzels appear to be heated.

On my 06 equinox the rear window fluid is empty and I cant find how to refil it


The fluid for the rear washer just comes from the front fluid container. If it is not coming out through your rear squirter, try and hold the lever that makes it spray for about 10 seconds. If it is still not working, there may be either a blockage in the lines (if you live in a cold climate it could be frozen), or the line may be broken or disconnected, or the pump that supplies washer fluid to the rear window could be burned out, or the fuse could be blown.

If you activate the rear window washer, do you hear any pumps making any noises? If it is making noises, then the pump works, meaning either the line is frozen, broken, or disconnected.
If you do not hear pump noises, then it is either your fuse for the pump, the pump itself, or perhaps even the switch (which is less likely)

All of these solutions are only going to help if you make sure that the washer fluid container is full :)

Removing the windshield washer reservoir in a 2002 Chrysler T&C


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.
  10. Disconnect the electrical body harness connectors to the washer pump motors and the fluid level sensor. Slide the red lock on the connector to the release position, then, depress the black tab and pull the connector off the pump or sensor.
  11. Remove the two reservoir mounting screws.
  12. Disconnect the reservoir from the body mount by raising the reservoir upward slightly and then down so that the reservoir filler neck and front washer hose pull through the opening in the front fender side shield.

  1. Push filler neck and front washer hose through the opening in the front fender side shield. Connect the reservoir to the body mount by lowering the reservoir down.
  2. Install the two reservoir mounting screws. Torque screws to 8.5 - 11.3 Nm (75 - 100 in. lbs.) .
  3. Connect the electrical body harness connectors to the washer pump motors and the fluid level sensor. Slide the red lock on the connector to the closed or locked position.
  4. Assure that washer is properly routed to prevent pinching and possible inoperative washers.
  5. Connect the left right front wheelhouse splash shield and move aside.
  6. Install the right front wheel and tire assembly.
  7. lower vehicle from hoist or jack stands.
  8. Install the filler tube screw. Torque screw to 8.5 - 11.3 Nm (75 - 100 in. lbs.) .
  9. Connect the washer hose to the hose clip located on the front fender side shield.
  10. Connect the washer hose at the in-line connector forward of the cowl grille.
  11. Install the engine fresh air housing inside the engine compartment.
  12. Connect the battery negative cable.
  13. Verify system operation.
