Get assistant to hold washer motor control on then give it a clout with a small toffee hammer and see if it works

    That's not so easy to do. Found a schematic. The washer pump control is part of the BCM (Body Control Module) which is under the radio in the center console. The pump is good (put 12v to it directly). I found that the pump uses the 25A Front Wiper Fuse on the Underhood Fuse Block. Wipers work fine so the fuse is not the problem. The Pump Control and the motor both lead to the I/P Fuse Block, but it's not clear what it does there. The schematic makes it look like a connector - not a relay or fuse. I have a hunch that there is a problem in the BCM.

    sorry this is one of the joys of being a mechanic your in america and iam in europe and a lot of the makes of vehicles here are completely different ,like anything with a big petrol engine is worthless ,small diesels fetch silly money .Back to your problem could it be the stalk control switch??

    I am having the same problem did you ever figure out the problem?

  • sksmithapa Dec 17, 2010

    The problem ended up being with a connector near (or on the back of) the I/P Fuse Block (thats by the left leg of the front seat passenger). I ended up taking to the dealer so I don't know how this is accessed. Looks like it's a pain to get to.

    well never trust a dealership as they will tell you anything and being the dealer they expect you to swallow the bill because as their the dealer their the specialists--- wel i have old news for you their not the end all -The most likely thing they done was to look at the fuse and pull it out push it back in again and it worked ,then some story to make the charge up ,trust me on this one having worked in dealerships i could tell yoy a few long stories over the camp fire

  • sksmithapa Dec 17, 2010

    In this case, I had eliminated all the simple stuff, like fuses, relays, the pump itself. I was resigned to it being the BCM, which is a very expensive repair/replacement. I was pleasantly surprised when they found it to be just a connector problem (that was not easily accessable).

Where can I purchase fuse #45 for my chevrolet equinox lt 2007 in richmond, va

It sounds as if the windshield washer pump, located at the base of the windshield washer fluid reservoir, has lost it's seal. When this occurs, washer fluid seeps into the pump and shorts it out. I advise that you remove the pump to confirm this before replacing the fuse. A replacement wind washer pump and fuse can be found at your dealer, local auto parts store or the internet ( has always been a great source for quality parts at a very competitive price and I use them all the time). Hope this helps.

Is there a windshield washer relay fuse on a 2007 chevrolet equinox?

Check for voltage where the connector plugs into the pump. If you have power there when you press the "wash" button, the pump is probably bad. If you DO have power then check your wiring for breaks. Also, is there anything else that doesn't work in your car? (i.e. dome lights, glove box light...etc.) AND....recheck the fuse to make sure it is in snug and hasn't blown again.
Good Luck.

Is there a fuse fot the windshield washer pump on a 2007 chevy impala and if so where is it

there is a fuse for the windshield washer pump. It is located in the under the hood fuse box.The fuse is near the bottom marked WSW. Look in the manual for fuse box (under hood) I read that Chevy recommended repacing the 10 amp fuse with a 15amp. There are spare fuses in the bottom of the fuse box(labeled in the manual) and there is a 15 amp. I changed mine in 3 minutes and now it works. Hope I helped.
