Question about 1996 Nissan Pathfinder
Remove the small plastic hose for the washers and press the switch to turn them on, if there is water coming through the hose your spray holes are blocked on the wiper arms or the bonnet, wherever they are situated
If there is no water coming through, check for power at the connection for the washer pump, you will have to get someone to press the button or switch and hold it while you test for any power to the pump motor
If there is power there then the pump is faulty, replace the pump and test
the pump is located on the bottom of the washer fluid resevoir, some just push into a rubber seal, if that is the case just pull it out and replace it with the new pump

you need to get a 12 volt test light. put the clamp on the positive battery terminal, and probe the two pins on the connector to the washer pump. if one lights up, your ground is ok. now put the clamp on the negative battery terminal, and probe the connector, while having someone try to activate the washer pump. if it lights up, you have power. if you have power and ground, the pump is defective. if either the power or the ground are not working, you need to trace the wiring back and find the break in whichever one is not working - i am assuming you have already checked the fuse, and you have changed the switch, which leaves a wiring issue. good luck!
