Make sure small tubes are connected to bottom of spray nozzels and washer fluid tank. If that's OK listen for sound of pump motor when you press the washer switch. If no sound check fuses. Lastly make sure nozzels are clean and tubes are not kinked or blocked.

Was it on a cold day below 32 deg. F? If it was, could you verify that the proper season windshield wiper fluid was added? If not, then may have to wait until a warm day for it to unfreeze.

Do you hear the water pump whizzing or operating when you press the button to shoot water?

If not, then it's a possible bad pump, assuming that the fluid is not frozen.

Good luck on this repair.

The windshield washer not add water


If your windshield washer won't squirt here are some ideas and I hope they work. Where the fluid shoots out on the windshield are the little holes clean sometimes they fill with gum and dirt. Are all the hoses from the unit itself open and free of dirt. If its freezing could be froze up. If all that is ok make sure the pump is running when you push the button. If not check the fuses. If they are ok could be the pump itself.

The windshield washer will not shoot fluid on to windshield is it the Fuse


It may not be your fuse, your windshield fluid reservoir has a pump that when you activate the switch it pumps the fluid to spray your windshield. The fuse box should be located in the engine compartment on the left hand side or the right hand side of the engine.

Washer fluid wont spray


To check to see if pump is working,remove hose at windshield and turn on and see if fluid comes out,if it does then part that shoots it to windshield is clogged,a tooth pick may work to pry it loose and come out,if no fluid comes out,then pump is bad,you can check to see if pump is getting power with a meter.

1995 saturn My windshield washer doesn't squirt fluid. Which fuse should I check? What else should I look at?


This reply falls under, " what else should I look at."

When you press to squirt, do you hear any sound? if you do there are 3 easy things you can do.

1. Some of the windshield wiper reserviors, ( plastic bottles ), need a minimumlevel of fluid to operate, so, make sure you fill up your reservior.

If that doesn't help;
2. There is a very small hose that runs from the reservior to the pump, pull it off of the pump end, very carefully, and have someone hit the squirter.

If fluid comes through the hose;
3. Take a very small paper clip, straighten one end out, and push it into the ports that the water shoots out of to squirt the windshield.
Sometimes wax or debree can clogg these very little holes.

Windshield fluid does not come out. Wipers and Pump / Motor turn on and makes noise so I don't think that's the problem. I am wondering if I can just change the check valve as that is what I was told the...


dirt could have gotten in the lines. take a needle and poke in the holes the washer fluid comes out . to be sure, take the line off the pump and try it. if the pump shoots washer fluid- the line is clogged. if not, the pump could be clogged

Washer spray on back windshield


i've actually had this issue with one of my cars. there are tiny spray nossles, that can pivot, from which the water shoots out of to hit the windshield. you need to find something slim and sharp like a bobby pin and place the tip into the exit hole where the water shoots out. gently pivot the nossle towards the area where you want the water to hit the wind shield. be careful not to push the pin too much into the nossle. you may warp the nossle tip and the water my spray out in an undesireable fashion.
