Check fuses and/or wiring harness attached to pump. Use a continuity light (10-15 dollars at any auto store) and check to see the pump is getting electricity by having a friend turning on the washer pump and placing the continuity light probe on the electrical connector to the pump and the fues. if you have no light come on when you place the continuity light to the wiring harness then its a ground wire or the fuse.

May be the resevoir bottle may have something stuck in it, you are right, you may have a clogged line. Also check the routing of the hoses to the squirt that they are not pinched or kinked. Any washer fuild leaking anywhere?

SOURCE: I have a 2003 Pontiac gran prix. The windshield

Check on the passenger side where the tubing is routed along the top and the turns the corner where it is supposed to be under the gasket. Mine had not been working for a long time and today when I replaced my serpentine belt, I happened to noticed the the tubing was pinched and cutting off the fluid. I rerouted it under the gasket like it is supposed to be after I straightened out the tubing.

My windshield wiper motor works, but washer does not work/


I would start by checking fuses. If you've checked already, then the windshield washer pump has probably gone bad. The wiper motor and washer pump should be separate units. Typically the washer pump is located in the base of the washer fluid reservoir.

Check fuse in fuse box inside vehicle,if good,then go to windshield washer pump and disconnect wiring,get meter and check if power is going to pump,if so then pump is at fault,if no power,thenwiring could be short somewhere to fuse box.Also check your washer hoses,that they are not kinked or came loose.Pump could just be loose.

Windshield washer not working


If you hear the pump running when you try to use the washer pull off the lines on the pump and make sure they're clear. If the lines are clear you need to replace the nozzles. If you don't hear the pump running at all, replace your windshield washer pump.

When i go to use the windshield wipers the wipers move but the fluid which is full doesn't come out.


follow the windshield spray nasal water lie to the pump making sure the line is not broken, next do you hear the pump running when you spay the fluid, if not that the pump is faulty, if you do hear the pump running, more likely the windshield spray nasal is clog with debris; to unclog it try to use a clothes needle, poke around in it to see if you can clear the blockage, if not, replace will be the best idea, fairly cheap and easy to replace. those windshield tank and the pump does not have good filter on them and they tend to get clog up in the pump or the spray nasal.

Windshield washer not working properly


If you have used ANYTHING beside windshield solvent in you reservor, you may have created WAXING from soap in the bottom of washer tank, which clogs pump,lines, and nozzel....take the tank out and wash it..disconnect washer hoses at nozzel and clear with compressed air along with the nozzel...if you use solvent only you may have a worn washer pump or restriction...check those and good luck.....
