Use a cheap probe type 12V tester and check the output at the plug on the washer pump motor when the wash button is pushed. If you have power to the plug then the washer pump motor is bad or poor electrical connection. If no power to the plug then the multifunction switch may be bad. either way about $50 in parts from rockauto.com

the washer pipe will have blown appart.this happens if you opperate the rear washer when it is frozen.it will either be off in the tailgate usually when this happens there is water around the catch when you open the tailgate.or in the headlining in the left rear,have a feel and see if the headlining is wet.to avoid this reoccuring use a good screenwash with frost protection.

Rear washer may have it's own reservoir . Can you hear a pump humming when you activate the washer? Look in the under flooor compartment

check that the jet is not clogged.take a very thin piece of wire,like from a twist tie and clean the hole. maybe the hose is pinched or disconnected.if you spray the rear,you should hear the pump working.i have seen hoses come off and if you spray for 20 seconds,it may leak from the car

Check power at the pump motors. You may not see a fuse because some run off a circuit breaker. If all else fails, a bit "backyard" but you likely could break out the washer pumps from the system and make a simple push button on the dash to operate them.

WHERE IS THE WIPER/WASHER FUSE LOCATED ON 2007 PONTIAC TORRENT


In the under hood fuse box , should have diagram inside the lid . Front wiper's or rear ? Front fuse # 36 - 25 amp. Plus Two relay's PCB hi and Wiper PCB relay . Wouldn't think this being fuse problem . Wiper switch , motor etc... The wiper's are control by a computer . BCM - body control module .

The windshield wiper/washer system consists of front and rear wipers. The front and rear wipers are operative when the vehicle is in accessory or run. The front wipers have 4 different modes: Mist, Intermittent, Low, and High. When the front wipers are in the intermittent mode, there are 5 delay modes to chose from, commanded by the windshield wiper washer switch through the body control module (BCM). The rear wipers has an only one mode.

If the fuse is bad , could have a short to ground or wiper motor pulling to much current (amps) . Fuse's don't just blow for no reason ! Could also have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the BCM .

DTC B3873
DTC B3875
DTC B3922

DTC B3715 02: Front Wiper Relay Drive Circuit Short to Ground
The body control module (BCM) controls the wiper motor based on input from the windshield wiper washer switch. The BCM monitors the wiper washer switch through three separate signal circuits and a ground circuit. The windshield wiper switch high signal circuit is used to determine high speed wiper operation, the windshield wiper switch low signal is used to determine low speed, intermittent, and mist operation through the use of a resistor ladder, and windshield washer switch signal circuit is used to determine washer operation.
The BCM controls the windshield wiper motor through two output controls, controlling two different PCB relays which control the desired wiper speed, high or low.

The PCB relay's are non- servicable , replace fuse box . Soldered in Your best bet mit be to take it to a qualified repair shop .

2004 Hyundai Elantra GT Windshield Washer Pump Not Working. The FRONT windshield washer works, but when I use the rear washer, I hear nothing but silence. I checked the FUSE, it's OK. What is going on?


You have 2 washer pumps on the washer bottle. You need to check to see if power is getting to the rear pump motor by using a test light. When you press the button, one of the 2 terminals should light up. If it does, the pump could be bad or it may have a bad connection. If there is no power, you may have a bad switch.

Where is fuse for windshield wiper pump located ? fluid does not spray and no sound from motor. Motor was replaced still does not work. Rear window defogger does not work. Thank You


This must be the fuse and is found under the dash within the car. If the fuse blows out then you must check the wiring to the front washer motor and to the rear.
Disconnect and check the rear and the front washers.

If it makes noise, it's not the fuse. Most likely the discharge nozzles are stopped up. Try blowing compressed air into them from the outside.

I have a1992 ford explorer the front and rear wipers quit workin


check for power at the wiper motor. If power at the wiper motor but no wiper action then replace the motor. if no power at the motor then use a jumper wire and put power to the motor. Does motor run? if so check for open circuit in the wire someplace.
