    does the pump motor make a humming noise when you activate it? If so the jets are clogged. If not then check for power at the plug and check your fuses or switch.

If the pump still makes noise, you may just have clogged nozzles, have you tried those yet? Also, if you have windshield cleaner left over from summer, it may have frozen in the lines.

SOURCE: how to replace power steering pump on 2002 ford

Take a picture of it before you take it apart so you know where everything goes.
1.Take belt off
2. Unbolt any bracket that the power steering pump is bolted too.( only if you have to unbolt a bracket)
3. Disconnect lines from steering pump
4. After replacing power steering pump fill with Auto. trans fluid.
5. After filling start car and turn wheel left and right a few times this will get the air out of the system and recheck fluid level.

SOURCE: 2000 BMW 323i windshield washer fluid won't work

Had the same problem with my 2001 330ci. If not used frequently the pump will get waterlogged and allow fluid to seep into the motor. I was able to disassemble, clean, and rebuild my pump but I would recommend replacing it, it is not expensive at around $20-30 and easy to change.

The washer pump is inserted into a hole on the washer tank itself. It is an interference fit so it will pop out. If you have significant amount of fluid in the tank it will leak out of the hole. There should be one hose connected with a clamp and one electrical connector. I believe there may be a plastic shroud covering it which needs to be unsnapped.

Good luck!

How do I change the windshield washer pump on 2002 kia optima

Windshield washer pumps are attached to the windshield washer fluid container. Remove that container and look for the washer pump. That is the only item with two wires connected to it. First remove hose connected to the washer pump and turn the washer switch on. IF water flows from the washer, your water lines are clogged, if no water flows, your washer pump maybe dead or there is no power going to the washer pump.

Try testing IF current is passing/present at the two wires by connecting as continuity tester or simply a small lamp. Switch the washer on and see if the bulb gets lit, if it does, there is power and your problem is the washer pump itself. Replace the pump.

Windshield washer not working 2004 ford escape

Activate the washer fluid switch and listen to see if you can hear the pump making noise. If you can, the try disconnecting the washer fluid hoses and blowing through them to see if they are clogged. If they dont here are some steps to diagnose a faulty pump.

Fist find the washer pump, should be located at the bottom of the fluid bottle.
Second disconnect the harness from the pump, and hook a test light to both terminals.
Third have someone operate the switch for the pump and look to see if the light comes on.
If the light does come on then the pump is most likely burnt out. Replace the pump and you should be good to go.
If you don't have power trace the ground wire and make sure it is connected, then check your fuses and make sure none are blown.

Windshield washer pump not working. where is it, how difficult to replace?

First you should check the fuse might be blown, sometimes people use a lesser quality fluid and it freezes causing the pump to blow the fuse .if not that then remove the washer fluid tank and you will find pump on the bottom.not difficult.

you can buy a in line pump most anywhere and it just goes in the washer fluid line and the wires from your old pump will need the ends changed to make it work.they come with good instruction.
