Question about 1995 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Re: Windshield Washer pump

I tested the pump and the connectors in my 95 accord. The pump works but the connector has no power to it even with the windshield wipers working and mist on. I was wondering if the switch itself could be the problem or would I have to replace the entire wiring system for the windshield washer pump to work.

Check your fuse.

    Take off the switch. After you take off the steering cover around the steering column, there are two screws on the switch, then you will need a small flat head screw driver, insert it into the side to get the switch out. Disconnect the switch from the wiring harness. From the back of the switch, there are eight connectors. From the upper left hand corner, count it as number one, moving to your right as number two, then three and four. On the lower row, the bottom left hand corner, count it as nmber five, moving to you right as number six, then seven and eight. Connect a wire or wrap a wire around number 7 (postive 12 volt) and wrap a wire around number 1 (the pump), and reconnect the switch to the wire harness. Contact these two wires, if the pump works, then it is the switch. Since you have these two wires, you can connect a momentary switch and by-pass that part of the broken switch.

1999 chevy prizm windshield washer fuse location?


If your windshield wipers are working than the fuse is good. The wiper and the washer use the same fuse.

The washer pump will have power to it all the time with the key in the on position. you can disconnect the connector and check this. The washer pump is grounded by the wiper switch. you can check the other wire for continuity to ground with the washer button depressed.

If there is power and ground at the connector than the pump is bad.

I have a 2007 mustang an the wipers wont turn off I had 2 pull the fuse to turn them off can u help me


The windshield wiper motor is a smart wiper motor with an integrated electronics module. The internal components of the motor are the high/low relay, washer pump relay, and the run/park relay and associated electronics.
The windshield wiper motor receives its inputs from the windshield wiper/washer switch. These signals are ground reference signals. When the switch is placed in different positions, various input signals are selected and sent through circuits to the motor. The windshield wiper motor module identifies these selected input signals and activates the motor to the selected function.!
Your probably going to need a new wiper motor ! ! ! But you should always test before replacing parts !

Windshield wiper washer pump fuse


On a lot of cars, that washer pump circuit is really a sub-circuit of the windshield wipers themselves. The wiper fuse is also the washer pump fuse, in other words.

Use a test light or a voltmeter. Pull off the electrical connector at the pump on the washer fluid tank. Have a helper turn the key on, then press for the washer pump to operate. Take your test light and clip the ground lead to the negative battery post. Touch the tester probe to the positive terminal to assure the light is bright, that the test light will work. Now probe the connector at the washer pump. One of them wires should light up the test light, or would show battery voltage with a voltmeter or multi-meter. If it has power when key is on and washer switch on, the motor is bad, or sometimes you have to go a little further and find a ground fault.

If there is no power on any wire at the pump connector, you will have to look at a wiring diagram to diagnose it. Find out just how the pump gets power.

The windshield washer doesnt work i try the fuse and its ok. what can it be.??


If the nozzles are clean and clear, and the lines are not pinched or broken, check for power at the connector for the washer pump, while a friend activates the washer from inside the vehicle. If you have power there, you most likely have yourself a bad washer pump.

If you do not have power at the washer pump (when its activated), then I would give a quick visual inspection of the wires and connector, and if all is okay, I would then check the switch inside the vehicle. If the switch tests OK, you are going to have to trace down an open in your wiring.

Most likely a bad switch or pump.

Can not find the fuse for the windshield washer


Hi, the washer uses the same fuse as the wipers. If the washer is not working, the pump has likely failed. You can check it out by pulling the electrical connector off the pump and using a 12 volt test light to see if there is power in the connector when the key is on and the washer switch is activated. If there is power there, replace the pump. If no power, check the wiring from the switch, or the switch may be bad. Please let me know if you have questions and thanks for using FixYa.

Windshield fluid squirter doesn't work - 99 Maxima


I would first test your washer pump ( squirter) by a 12 volt source such as battery take 2 wires one for negative and one for positive leads from your battery or other source of 12 volts to the leads on your pump if pump is bad it will not run, you can bypass the switch in the same manner only remove the switch connectors from switch and apply the power to your car connection.
