Sounds like the washer fluid pump went out. Autozone should carry one for under $20. They are really simple to install.

Where is the fuse for the water pump for the window washer


A washer pump in a car's windshield wiping system moves washer fluid from a reservoir through hoses. The motorized pump pressurizes the fluid to allow it to be squirted from the hoses through nozzles onto the front and/or rear windshield of a car. The washer fluid helps windshield wipers get rid of rain, dirt, or other objects that can interfere with a driver's visibility. If your washer fluid is not being sent out when activated, the solution could simply be filling the washer system's reservoir with more fluid or cleaning the nozzles and hoses. In more severe cases, the washer pump may need to be replaced. Here are steps to troubleshoot a windshield-washer pump.

Does the 2005 Nissan Murano SE have rear window washer? If so, where do I fill the rear wiper fluid?


Yes it does and the washer fluid reservoir under the hood is for both the front and rear. The following is a diagram of the washer pump and hoses so you can check for operation or leaks.

2012 windshield washer fluid low light came on but when I filled the fluid the light did not go out


A 2012 should be under warranty . These cars have to be scanned when lights come on usually because of their computers. It could be as simple as a reset, but I would take it to the dealer, or try running the fluid low purposely, and filling it up again as they may have a float inside the washer resevior sticking, Toyota is good to fix their customers up, if all else fails, I would bring it in. Hope this was helpful

I have a 2004 GMC Yukon. A bell would sound when my windshield washer fluid was low, and I was attempting to clean my windows. I sent my vehicle to a dealer for another issue, and now my low washer bell...


its more than likely the bulb has gone, it will if you leave it on for long periods of time, can be a led on some dashes and they can last longer than bulbs but sometimes they dont.

Front washer fluid is not working but rear is


Most washer solvent bottles share a common resevoir. The rear washer pump is located above the front pump. Try filling resevoir completely. If this does not solve the problem, listen for pump howling when you engage it. If it engages & howls & still wont work, possibly rear nozzle is plugged. Disconnect hose to it. If you engage it & it squirts, nozzle is plugged. Try blowing through it with air hose or pick it out with a fine pick. If no noise or fluid either way pump will need to be replaced.

Windshield washer fliud does not squirt in my car


first try getting to a source of compressed air,with it regulated to a low pressure so as not to blow lines off blow into the top hole on the reservoir and force fluid thru the hoses,a lot of times the hoses or sprayers on the wipers get dirt in them and cant pass the fluid,also blow back thru the sprayers to see f this helps

The rear wiper on my '99 model exped isnt working ,ford global says its the motor and it will cost me P13k . any one who can help me find a mechanic do some repair on this?


what is P13K?

check the fuse first. dealer can hook up NGS Tester and get fault codes to see what is wrong.

Principles of Operation
NOTE: The generic electronic module (GEM) will not activate the rear wiper system if either the liftgate or the liftgate glass is ajar. If either the liftgate or the liftgate glass becomes ajar while the rear wiper is in operation, the GEM will park the rear wiper motor.
There are two distinct modes of wiper operation:
  • Off Mode: In this mode, there is no rear wiper activity, and the wiper motor will be in the PARK position.
  • Interval Mode: This mode is selected when the rear wiper switch is in either the Interval 1 or 2 position. When this mode is selected, the rear wiper motor is driven up onto the glass by activating the rear wiper UP relay. When the wiper motor HIGH/LOW/PARK position input reaches the high position, the UP relay is deactivated and the DOWN relay is activated to reverse the wiper motor direction. When the wiper motor reaches the LOW position, as determined by the HIGH/LOW/PARK position input, the GEM deactivates the DOWN relay and will begin a new wiper cycle 1 to 10 seconds later, depending on the interval position selected.
To engage the rear window washer, rotate the rear window washer selector downward to the WASH position. The rear window wiper will run as long as the WASH position is selected. When the rear window washer selector returns to the OFF, INT 1 or INT 2 position, the washer will stop immediately, but the rear window wiper will continue for two to three sweeps and then return to its previous mode of operation.
The low washer fluid indicator chime warns that the washer fluid level is low. The low washer fluid indicator chime is a single tone with a duration of one second. The chime will sound when the low washer fluid indicator is initially activated.
The low washer fluid indicator warns that the fluid level in the washer reservoir is low. The low washer fluid indicator will illuminate when the washer fluid level is low and the ignition switch is in the RUN position.
The low washer fluid indicator will deactivate when the washer fluid reservoir is filled and the ignition switch has been cycled from RUN to OFF, then to RUN.
Inspection and Verification
  1. The wiper/washer system is a generic electronic module (GEM) controlled system; refer to Section 419-10 .
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the wiper/washer system.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.
