    We have the same thing with our 2005 Equinox

  • Anonymous Dec 05, 2008

    WE had the same problem on one of out two 2005 Chevy Equinoxes. We solve the problem by removing the tank. Rinsing it out clean. Cleaning the filter on the bottom of the pickup line and blowint out the fluid lines. Takes a few mnutes but will fix the problem. We found this to occur AFTER we started using a windshield cleaner fluid other than the blue stuff.

Mine does the same thing. I can get mine to work by turning the wipers on first then use the washer. I have to hold it on for a couple seconds sometimes before it starts

My wiper motor only works on high and stops were ever the wipers are at. And the washer motor doest #39;t work


Low Speed Windshield Wipers
Low speed is activated when the multifunction switch supplies a specific ground to the speed inputs of the windshield wiper motor module. The windshield wiper motor module then supplies ground to only the windshield wiper run/park relay coil, activating it. When the windshield wiper run/park relay is activated, the deactivated high/low relay connects voltage to the windshield wiper motor low input activating the wiper motor. The windshield wiper motor module continues to operate the windshield wiper motor in the same manner as in high speed, but in low speed with the wiper motor connected to the low speed input.
Washer System
The windshield washer is activated by the internal wiper motor module when it receives a ground signal input from the multifunction switch. Dependent on the switch selection, the internal wiper motor module activates the windshield washer relay (internal) by grounding the respective relay coil. When the relay is activated, it connects voltage to the washer pump while the washer level switch provides ground to the washer pump.

    My widshield wipers dont work and the fuses are fine


    To troubleshoot car windshield wiper problems, you need to thoroughly investigate problems with any of its operating parts. Here are some of the things that you need to check to determine why are your car windshield wipers not working.

    Check Wiper Motor
    The wiper motor is the driving force of the windshield wiper. Feel the motor and listen to a humming sound. If there is no humming, the motor is the problem. Check if the motor is working properly and see to it that its electrical connections are made properly. If you find that the motor is dead and beyond repair, get it replaced immediately.

    Check For Break in Connecting Wires
    The connecting wires of the motor sometimes go loose and that may cause the windshield wipers to stop working. Also check the battery plug connection which the motor has. Connecting the loose wires properly or fixing/replacing the plug might solve your problem.

    Check Wiper Switch
    Another wiper assembly part that can malfunction is the wiper switch itself. Check for switch malfunction and if you find that is indeed the problem, get it replaced from a mechanic.

    Check for Bent Wiper Arms
    Bent wiper arms can cause the operation of the wipers to be hampered. If the wiper arms are bent beyond repair, get them replaced immediately.

    Check For Blown Out Car Fuse
    A blown up car fuse could be the culprit that has stopped the windshield wipers from working. Check the fuse assembly under the dashboard of the car. Replacing a blown fuse might fix the problem of windshield wipers not working.

    Windshield Wiper Sprayers Not Working - Things to Check

    Sometimes the windshield wiper sprayer stops working which can be very annoying. The washer mechanism is a self cleaning mechanism for the windshield. Here are some of the things that you need to check in case it is not working.

    Check Windshield Washer Motor
    The windshield washer mechanism might have been impaired due to the malfunctioning of the wiper washer motor. Check if its working and get it replaced if it is beyond repair.

    Check Windshield Washer Fluid Level
    Sometimes the washer doesn't work because the washer fluid levels are not filled to requisite levels. Filling in fluid might restore normal functioning.

    Check For Broken Washer Hose
    The connecting washer hose that connects the reservoir to the nozzle, might be broken or worn out stalling the overall operation. Check the hose for leaks and get it replaced.

    Check Washer Nozzle For Clogging
    Last thing to check is the nozzle of the washer for clogging. An obstruction in the washer nozzle might be the reason for windshield wiper sprayers not working. Using a pin, clean the clogged nozzle. This might restore the sprayer to the normal working condition.
