A washer pump in a car's windshield wiping system moves washer fluid from a reservoir through hoses. The motorized pump pressurizes the fluid to allow it to be squirted from the hoses through nozzles onto the front and/or rear windshield of a car. The washer fluid helps windshield wipers get rid of rain, dirt, or other objects that can interfere with a driver's visibility. If your washer fluid is not being sent out when activated, the solution could simply be filling the washer system's reservoir with more fluid or cleaning the nozzles and hoses. In more severe cases, the washer pump may need to be replaced. Here are steps to troubleshoot a windshield-washer pump.

I have a 2007 chevy impala. I replaced the windshield washer pump and checked/replaced the fuse. I get a 12V spike to the pump when trying to wash the window and then no voltage. Is there a relay som

there is no relay.
- check if there is dirt in the water tank which might stuck the pump and blow the fuse.
- also check all cables to the windshield washer pump if they are damaged and cause a short somewhere.
- or the wiper switch in the dashboard might be faulty?

Cant hear motor running when i use window washer

Could be fuse or pump. Check the fuse first. If the pump motor is bad, it should not be expensive at all. The unit is fairly easy to get to, so not much labor involved, and the cost of a new pump...well, its a toyota, and its an import...might make you do a double take for such a tiny part. You might look for a used one at a salvage yard. Or any parts store could order the pump cheaper than the toyota dealer. Shop around!

Volvo v50 washer fluid doesn't spray

Hi, their are a couple of common problems here.
but first of all check the following.
can you heat the pump come on when you press the button for the washer, if you cant hear it from in the car open the bonnet and get someone to press the button and listen for the pump if you hear it then you know the pumps working if you dont hear anything then the pump needs replacing.

if neither the front or back windows work and the pumps make no sound for front or back washer then your next stop would be the fuse box, check all the fuses and replace any blown fuses then try the washers.

If how ever you can hear the pump working then the problem is going to be one of 2 things the most common is going to be that the water jets are blocked to unblock them get a small needle and poke into the holes where the water comes out of then try the washer, if it still dont work then the problem is the other end at the washer botlle, you will find the pipe by the pump has gelled up due to the cleaning fluid you put into the washer bottle so what you now need to do is remove the washer bottle and the pumps and give the pipes a good clean out to ensure they are not blocked.

i hope i have given you some things to check
