There is a circuit board just below the windshield wiper motor, it is in a sealed box. Unfortunately, it was a poor design where the solder points are susceptible to circuit board flexing and the solder joints work loose, giving intermittent operation of the wipers. A new upgraded circuit board (without said fail points) costs USD $27 at any discount auto store. As far as the washer pump, it is another common fail point to 1995-2003 GMC Jimmy - Sonoma, and 1995-2003 Chevy Blazer - S-10 pickups. You have to remove the air cleaner to remove the washer fluid tank. The cost of the pump is around USD $15. You can do like I did, re-solder the points on the circuit board, but mine failed again about 50K miles down the road. The problem is that the points for the windshield wiper motor are on the circuit board, and the movement of the wiper motor flexes the solder points for the connectors. The new boards do not have solder points like the OEM parts. The boards are completely different, and unlikely to fail again.

Hard to say what's wrong without testing thing's . Is there B+ voltage to the wiper switch ? B + voltage to the wiper motor ? Do you know how to use a voltmeter ? How to test electrical circuits ?
Here is a factory service manual list of componets involved .
Wiper/Washer System Components
The Wiper/Washer System consists of the following electrical components:
• Accessory relay
• Heated washer nozzles w/XA7
• WASH NOZ 10A fuse
• Windshield washer fluid level switch
• Windshield washer pump motor
• Windshield wiper motor
• Windshield wiper motor module
• Windshield wiper/washer switch
• Wiper/washer switch 10A fuse
• Wiper motor 30A fuse

Do you know how the wipers work ?

In my 2007 Saturn Vue there is what I think is an air pump which is cracked that one port is not connected to anything.


There is a electric motor that pumps washer fluid . Located in the bottom of the washer fluid tank .
Wash Operation (Front and Rear Wipers)
The front and rear washer systems use the same windshield washer fluid pump. When either the front or rear wiper is in the washer position voltage will be supplied to one side of the windshield washer fluid pump (depending on whether it is front or rear), while the other side of the pump is grounded.
At this point, the windshield washer fluid pump sprays solvent onto the windshield. When the front or rear washer is activated, the BCM receives an input from the switch that is activated. The BCM will control the wipers while in the WASH mode. The BCM will control either the front wiper relay or the rear wiper relay to turn on the wipers. The windshield wipers operate at low speed for 3 swipes and returns to the park position.

When turning on the washers do you hear the motor run ? Have some one try it while you listen at the washer fluid tank ! These pump motors do go bad .
turn OFF the ignition.
Disconnect the harness electrical connector of the windshield washer fluid pump.
Connect a test lamp from the windshield washer pump control circuit to a good ground .
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Press the front washer switch.
Does the test lamp illuminate?
YES or NO !

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.

Windshield washer not working


  1. check your windshield washer fluid level.
  2. make sure you can hear the fluid pump operating when you operate the switch.
  3. If you can hear the pump working and you have fluid in the reservoir but still no spray,
  4. check the washer fluid lines don't have holes and aren't clogged or pinched. check the sprayer nozzles make sure they are not clogged with debris.
  5. if your washer still doesn't work your fluid pump is probably the problem.

My 2006 Dodge Dakota windshield washer fluid does not spray. I checked the washer pump and it works. The fuses are all good. And the wipers work. When I press the windshield washer button inside the truck...


If the pump works, something should be flowing thru the hose to the spray nozzles.
And if the pump works, everything electrical is working.
How do you know the pump works ?
