One of the following:

There is no washer fluid in the reservoir.
The washer activation switch or wiring is defective.
The washer pump is blocked or defective.
The washer tubes are blocked or have come off the jets or have an airlock in them.
The jets are blocked.

The washer fluid pump gone bad or the wire harness is damaged due to corrosion. If the pump is working, then there is a leak along the wash fluid lines and needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Windshield wipers won't work after removing battery to get to the windshield wiper pump that squirts fluid to clean windshield


Sometimes disconnecting the battery does more damage then you want it might have trip a fuse or relay check those if thats not it, maybe wiper motor or transmission went out.

2002 Honda Odyssey van, the windshield washer doesn't squirt fluid or wipe the wipers, though the windshield wipers work separately . . . . how to fix?


Sounds like you may need to change the washer fluid pump. They do go bad. It's located inside the washer fluid reservoir, which is in the front of the passenger's side wheel well, behind the front bumper.

1995 saturn My windshield washer doesn't squirt fluid. Which fuse should I check? What else should I look at?


This reply falls under, " what else should I look at."

When you press to squirt, do you hear any sound? if you do there are 3 easy things you can do.

1. Some of the windshield wiper reserviors, ( plastic bottles ), need a minimumlevel of fluid to operate, so, make sure you fill up your reservior.

If that doesn't help;
2. There is a very small hose that runs from the reservior to the pump, pull it off of the pump end, very carefully, and have someone hit the squirter.

If fluid comes through the hose;
3. Take a very small paper clip, straighten one end out, and push it into the ports that the water shoots out of to squirt the windshield.
Sometimes wax or debree can clogg these very little holes.

I have a 20063 Kia Sportage that was recently serviced. Since I got it back I also moved out of state and noticed that when I tried to spray my windshield wiper fluid I could hear the motor but nothing...


You are on the problem from what I read. The fluid goes from the tank, through the motor you hear, and out through small tubing to the "nozzles" that spray your windshield. I'm sure one end fell off, but you will have to search it down. Follow the hose if you can, as you may have to move some covers or parts, but look close and you may see the problem.

Windshield wiper fluid does not squirt out


go to a service station with an air compressor and with the air turned down to about 20 lbs blow into the washer top small hole to force fluid thru the hoses,not a lot of pressure so you blow hoses off or rupture something

My windshield wipers work but I cant squirt windshield cleaner


it's likely the tiny motor/pump located at the bottom of the tank that has failed. to confirm this have some turn on the washer fluid switch and test for voltage at the pump. there are several aftermarket pumps you can use as a replacement.

Windshield wiper fluid won't squirt


When you pull the lever to activate the windshield washers, do you hear any type of sound coming from under the hood?  A whirring sound should be heard from the little electric pump that feds the washers.
If you can hear the whir, then you should look for a possible clog in the washer hoses (there is more than one...).
If you cannot hear the whirr, then you should check the fuse that protects the windshield washer circuit.  Check your owner's manual for the location and correct amperage for this circuit.
Good luck!

Windshield wiper of 1987 300E


Hello, Spray some wd-40 etc at the joint that the wiper blade pivots on and then work it back and forth. Sometimes you really have to push harder than you thought it could stand.
I hope this helps.

Wipers


On my 850 the headlight wipers come on the same time as my windshield wipers when I pull the lever to squirt washer fluid on my windshield.
The back wiper should be on an independent switch.
