96 tl, no wiper fluid coming out. is there a separate fuse for the fluid or is it the same as the wiper motor. If so where is the fuse, or where is the pump if i need to change it

you add fluid all the time so you do know where the tank is ! (engine bay)
see pump at bottom of tank?
many cars its the same as the wiper fuse.
why no just look at them all, its in the cab fuse box.

if the pump buzzes, it is probably ok, remove hose, does it pump water now? hose at pump is in near bottom of tank.
got a sun roof, they are diffrent
the sun roof , can kill the washer, via the sun roof washer relay cut out.
fuse 18 runs front wiper and washer
the roof premissive relay is FuSe 5 ,marked "wiper-washer" (roof)
now on no roof cars, that is different
fuse 6 runs it all. marked wiper-washer 30amps.
complex, huh
use and see it all ... ever bit,

see the no buzz tests

Buzzing noise

Could be a relay or just about anything. You'll have to figure out if it is coming from under the dash or from the engine compartment and try to pinpoint the noise to proceed.

Electrically, everything is dead on the car; however, the battery is good. Some kind of relay or fuse, in a box under the hood in front of the driver, buzzes when the ignition is OFF; when ON, it quits...

when you state that when you turn key on the buzzing quits tells me its a ground problem. assuming the battery is fully charged and holds a good load. check your negative and positive cables close at the battery because the side mount battery cable ends seam to be causing a lot of problems for people. use a test light that can pierce the skin of the cable to be sure the voltage is going threw/

Wuen i turn off the ignition switch and i pull out the key the sound indicates that still you have the key inside of the ignition is still can i get that soun off?

mcdevito75 here, The key completes a warning circut in the off position of the ignition switch, this buzzing sound is a relay usually in the fuse box, find the fuse box, leave the key in the switch, listen and locate the buzzing sound and remove the relay from the fuse box, this relay may also be alone just under and around the steering column.

The relay probably belong to a bad installed alarm system. You will need to an electricist check if they exist and uninstall it for complete and reinstall it (only with both manuals at hand, car and alarm) Try to use a scanner for the another problem to not be an adivine and let us know if this do not solvent problem
