Re: Winshield washer 2002 LeSabre
Try the fuse first. then try sticking a pin into the washer jets. then try having the washer fluid pump/motor replace. if those are not the case, then you need a new switch to operate the pump motor. (a whole new control column)

There's a 20amp(fuse#20) fuse box on driver feet that control both wiper and washer. If the wiper is working, then it's not the fuse. It might be your washer motor, but if you live in WI live me. Your washer fluid might have frozen.
Check and verify that you indeed have the winshield washer tank filled if the tank is filled make sure the winshield washer hoses are attached to the washer nozzles under the hood if all of this checks out you probably have a bad windshield washer pump...
Your winshield washer fluid should not need to be replaced. If the resevoir looks contaminated you should rinse it out. Other than that it is just something that needs to be filled whenever it is low. Try not to run it down to empty as this can cause your washer fluid pump to burn out if you attempt to run it while it's dry. Top it off and try to use it regularly..
can you hear the pump running. If not check the fuses. If you do and there is fluid. Remove a hose from the back of the nozzle and se if fluid flows. If so clean the nozzles with a needle as they plug up.
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.
These days, most windshield washer pumps are mounted to the bottom of the washer fluid reservoir. Where’s that, you ask? Well, you know that spout you pour the fluid into—the one that disappears into nowhere? Well, the reservoir is actually located inside the front fender between the bumper and the front wheel.
To replace the pump, you will have to jack up the vehicle, remove the front wheel and then remove the inner fender liner.
