Windshield washer doesn't work. The fluid tank is full. I don't hear the pump trying to run. Could it be the pump or pump motor? I can't locate it.

In my 2007 Saturn Vue there is what I think is an air pump which is cracked that one port is not connected to anything.


There is a electric motor that pumps washer fluid . Located in the bottom of the washer fluid tank .
Wash Operation (Front and Rear Wipers)
The front and rear washer systems use the same windshield washer fluid pump. When either the front or rear wiper is in the washer position voltage will be supplied to one side of the windshield washer fluid pump (depending on whether it is front or rear), while the other side of the pump is grounded.
At this point, the windshield washer fluid pump sprays solvent onto the windshield. When the front or rear washer is activated, the BCM receives an input from the switch that is activated. The BCM will control the wipers while in the WASH mode. The BCM will control either the front wiper relay or the rear wiper relay to turn on the wipers. The windshield wipers operate at low speed for 3 swipes and returns to the park position.

When turning on the washers do you hear the motor run ? Have some one try it while you listen at the washer fluid tank ! These pump motors do go bad .
turn OFF the ignition.
Disconnect the harness electrical connector of the windshield washer fluid pump.
Connect a test lamp from the windshield washer pump control circuit to a good ground .
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Press the front washer switch.
Does the test lamp illuminate?
YES or NO !

No fluid 2006 hondyu elantra winshield washer


Just asking
Is the washer tank full of fluid?
Check the hoses and jets on the windshield They could be plugged. The pump could have dirt in it. The tank could be dirty where the fluid is sucked out of the tank itself .You can take the hose off the pump then try to make the pump work. If it squirts then you know you have dirt some place.

Windshield washer fluid quit working on my 2011 Freightliner Cascadia


There's a few things you might want to check. First, check to make sure the washer fluid reservoir is completely (assuming you hadn't already done that). After you are certain the reservoir is full, look for any possible leaks...either the reservoir or the hoses going from the tank to the windshield. If the tank and hoses are intact, turn on your windshield wipers...then try running the pump. If no washer fluid comes out, and for this you might need another person to assist you, try running the pump again...listening to make sure the pump is in fact running. If the pump does run but still no fluid comes out, inspect all of the hoses as well as all of the outlets where the fluid sprays the windshield...it is possible that the outlets may be plugged. Some common reasons for the outlets to be plugged...debris, dirt/mud, and/or wax (has anyone recently waxed your Freightliner?). Just to be sure, using a small needle or even a wire, ensure each outlet is cleared and not obstructed with anything. After that, try running the pump again. If no luck, try removing the hoses going from the tank to the windshield. Once removed, using something like a wire coat hanger, clear each hose for any possible obstruction. Reattach hoses and try running pump again. If still no luck, I would guess the problem might be located with the washer pump itself. Before opting to replace the pump, if you believe that is the problem and the pump just doesn't operate, check all fuses and inspect any/all wiring connections.

Good luck

Windshield washer stopped working in 2005 chrysler 300 limited


Can you hear the (washer) motor run? Have someone hit the squirters with the key on and out your ear to the filler tube to see if you can hear the pump running. If yes, common for the impeller to spin off the shaft of the motor. I have found that the replacements at the auto stores work rather well. Something of a pain to remove the tank though!

My 2004 Ford Expedition will not spray windshield wiper when the button is pushed. The wipers do turn on, but no spray. Would this be caused by a fuse (the wipers do turn on) or is the motor bad?


Can you hear the washer pump running when you operate the washer switch? The washer pump is in the bottom (side) of the washer fluid reservoir. You should hear it running. If not, you can disconnect the wire connector at the pump and use a test light to check to see if there is power and ground at the connector when you operate the switch. If there is power and ground, replace the washer pump motor. If there is no power or ground, you most likely have a bad washer control switch. (You have to replace the entire Multifunction Switch)

If you can hear the pump running, check for washer fluid pouring on the ground. If this is the case, you have a broken hose between the washer pump and the jets that spray on your windshield.

Also note that there is no way possible that your problem could be CAUSED by a fuse!
For more information on this subject, please review this article: Where's The Fuse?

I need to locate the motor for the windshield washer fluid. It is full but not working. You hear nothing when trying it. Where is it located?


It is usually contained in the lower part of the washer fluid tank. Remove the tank and you will discover a two-wire lead going to the motor.

2006 chevy impala windshield wiper fluid will not work. It's not frozen, and the tank is full. Do I need a new pump, and if so where is the pump located?


I just fixed the wifes 2006 Impala, windshild washer. If you look at the manual, under the hood fuse panel, you will find two fused identified as windshild wiper. The one at the bottom is the washer pump. They even conviently provide a spare (10 amp) fuse just below it. swap out and ops check okay. Hope this helps.

My windshield wipers work but I cant squirt windshield cleaner


it's likely the tiny motor/pump located at the bottom of the tank that has failed. to confirm this have some turn on the washer fluid switch and test for voltage at the pump. there are several aftermarket pumps you can use as a replacement.
