How about checking the washer lines. Could be clogged somewhere.

2001 toyota camry, wipers do not return to itsrest position, they go to center of windshield.


Did you change the motor before or after the storm?
The limit switch is inside the motor, it could be the switch or some plastic gear, hard to tell. If you can take it apart and probably you will see the problem.
Good Luck

Windshield squirter on driver side does not squirt onto the windshield, fluid is coming out but not spraying onto windshield


There is usually a swivel mechanism and the "squirter hole" is part of the swivel. You should be able to use a pin or needle, and insert the point into the squirter, and re-aim the stream that way.

The door lock button on the interior doesnt work. The button will now lock all doors. Also the windshield squirter doesnt work even though the resivor is full. I think it is a fuse.


On your Windshield "Squirter" commonly called a washer), it COULD be a fuse, but probably not. It is probably a blockage at the Suirter bit. Get a piece of very fine wire, and put it into the holes, to clear them out.

Windshield washer pump is not working


not likely that fuse blew but check fuse box for wiper fuse and see if blown, when u fill fluid, turn ignition on but not running hit squirter and listen for pump noise if noise is present then hit repeatedly and look if there is any leakage dripping and trace leak, if no noise check resivor for debrie floating (posisible blockage) last thing is check for power at pump with wire probs

Windshield fluid squirter doesn't work - 99 Maxima


I would first test your washer pump ( squirter) by a 12 volt source such as battery take 2 wires one for negative and one for positive leads from your battery or other source of 12 volts to the leads on your pump if pump is bad it will not run, you can bypass the switch in the same manner only remove the switch connectors from switch and apply the power to your car connection.
