I know this is a foolish question.....but you have checked the fluid level in the reservoir, right?

Could be a bad pump motor (located in most instances at the bottom of the reservoir, or it could be that the delivery hoses have cracked, allowing the cleaning fluid to spray out before reaching the nozzle for the windshield. Also could be clogged nozzles, but that isn't as likely as the preceding listed things.

An even less likely culprit could be the inside spray selection switch on the windshield wiper control stalk.

SOURCE: 2001 Buick Regal LS windshield washer fluid does not spray

There are a number of different issues that could cause this.

-The circuit for the wiper should be the same as the washer; same fuse. -I'd suggest trying to run the washer while the hood is open and the engine off. If it runs, you should hear a dull whine.(a 2nd person might be of use to help look and listen)...(find the pump by following the hoses from the wipers to a unit mounted close to the dashboard in the engine compartment)
-If it runs, check to see if any fluid is coming from a hose that might have become disconnected.
-If the pump runs, and if you see no fluid coming from anywhere, and if you can reach the hose connected to the washer pump, pull that hose off the pump. Try running the pump again to see if anything comes out in a good stream.
-If the pump doesn't run at all, check to make sure the connector hasn't come loose.
-If the pump still doesn't run, check to see if you have 12 volts at the connector at the pump. A simple check can be done with an auto bulb connected to the plug at the motor while the pump switch is pushed.
-If you have power at that point, you likely need to replace the pump and motor.(depending upon the age of vehicle & your mechanical abilities...a call to a local wrecking yard is suggested ..atleast to compare the cost vs. new)

hope that helps

SOURCE: windshield washer fluid not spraying

Try standing outside of the vehicle and having someone press the "juice" button and listen to see if the motor is trying to spray. If it is....check to to see if you have contaminents in the windshield wiper fluid reservoir.

SOURCE: odyssey rear window washer fluid not spraying where is reservior

The reservoir is the same one for the front washers. There are two electric pumps on the base of the reservoir (one for front and one for rear). You probably need a new pump. It is accessible behind the panel in front of the front right wheel.

Can you hear the washer pump running? If not check the plug for it located on the washer fluid bottle. Most likely if you do not hear that pump running the washer fluid pump is probably bad.

Window washing fluid pump isn't working. Hums and runs, but no fluid comes out. Any ideas?


1. the washer fluid jets are plugged possibly and will not allow fluid to discharge. Take a small wire or needle and stick into the jet end where the fluid comes out and it should spray after that if that is the issue.
2. the lines coming from the washer pump could be broken or cut open. Remove the line at the back of the spray jet either at the hood or at the wiper arm, then attempt to spray the wiper fluid. If it does not spray then there is an open/broken line coming from the washer pump or the pump may have a problem. If fluid is coming out of the line, the jet again is plugged up. Also check to see that fluid is going into the washer pump (locating the pump and getting to it is sometimes not so easy depending on where the mfg put the pump).

Rear window washer does not spray fluid. When I push the rear window washer button, the front washer/wipers turn on. The rear wipers work normally.


I have the same problem with my 2000 chevy blazer as skornec had posted. I kinda already figured the hose or spray nozzle was plugged. But the problem with checking those items is that I don't know where the hose is located to the back wiper. And the only thing that could be I see that could be the spray nozzle doesn't even have holes that washer fluid could spray from. So basically I just would LOVE if someone could please inform this lame brain of where to find the spray nozzle on the rear window and where in the interior of my blazer does the washer hose run.
