Have you checked to see if you have a cracked reservoir ? Could also be a hose that is cracked or maybe the washer motor came off the reservoir.

Frozen winshield washer lines


Find a heated garage, you need to thaw out he lines, or use a hair dryer if you can follow the line path. When working, drain all the fluid by holding down the spray button on the car. Go and buy he heavy duty washer fluid with the lowest freezing point you can buy and refill your washer reservoir with it. Don't add any water Most likely you had water in the reservoir and it froze.

I FILLED MY WINDSHIELD WASHER FLUID TANK, BUT WHEN I TRY TO USE IT THE WIPER BLADES TURN ON BUT NO LIQUID SPRAYS ON TO THE WINDSHIELD


you could have a bad washer pump in the washer reservoir. Can you hear the pump run when you turn on the washers? It should hum pretty loud.

If yes, you could have frozen solvent in the ends of the nozzles. Are you in a very cold area?

If yes, use Prestone yellow washer solvent, it doen't freeze like the cheap blue stuff.

The windshield washer just quit working fuses are good reservoir is full. i cannot tell if the pump is working or not. i cannot get to intake hose the reservoir is impossible to acess


check the supply lines from the reservoir to the outlets. the line runs under the heat blanket attached to the bottom side of the hood. These lines get brittle with cold and age. Mine broke last winter. Less than $2 for splices at auto parts store and I was back in business. Have someone turn on the sprayer while you look under the hood. if spray is not working, fuses are good, it is probable the sprayer motor. Check the supply lines first.

I have an 04 Saturn Ion. The windshield washer solution is not coming out of nozzle, (which are clear), the wipers work, and the washer solution in reservoir is not frozen. I checked the fuses and they are...


Where the hose connects to the reservoir that is the location of the pump. You will have to remove the washer fluid resivoir in order to replace the pump. Remove the hose and blow through it to make sure the orifice is not just clogged with wax.

Windscreen washer pump is frozen, cannot locate it to defrost, Also is there a winter setting on the engine?


If the washer reservoir is frozen, it must have been filled with plain water. It should be filled with washer fluid. Washer fluid contains alcohol to prevent freeze up. To locate the washer reservoir, look for the filler cap, it will say washer fluid on the cap.

Hi I have a Kia Spectra 2005 and despite the reservoir for windshield is full it does not work, pump probably or a fuse is broken, how can I sole it? Mihai


Is the fluid frozen? This is the season for that to happen. Make sure that -20 deg. F fluid is used or better. 32 deg. F fluid for summer will freeze at the pump in the Northern Hemisphere in the cold winter months.

If, you do have cold weather washer fluid, then the fuse can be checked in the fuse box, and the motor is likely integrated into the tank, and can be pulled out (if it's like a GM).

Good luck on this repair.

WINDSHIELD RESERVOIR RAPIDLY EMPTIES WHEN WASHER FLUID IS ENGAGED. THE RESERVOIR RETAINS FLUID WHEN THE PUMP IS NOT ENGAGED.


There a small diameter hoses that run the the nozzles for the front and rear windshield. More than likely, one is loose or cracked and is leaking. Do you have good spray on the windshield as you operate it? Is one weaker than the other? - If so, you definitely have a leak in a hose or nozzle. Another common leak area is around the reservoir edge or near the pump. The pump commonly resides at the bottom of the reservoir.
Hope this helps!
