SOURCE: Washer fluid not working

There is a fluid "pump" that is generally below the washer fluid reservoir under the hood. To check if the pump is bad try to spray some fluid and have someone listen under the hood while you are doing this. If they hear a hum or the system sounds like it is active but you are getting no fluid spraying out then you probably have a kink or stoppage. The spray nozzles are right below the windshield wipers and sometimes a piece of debris has lodged itself in. You can take a safety pin or something similar and try to get it out that way. If not you may have to take the hose apart and clean it that way. Hope this works for you.

Check power at the pump motors. You may not see a fuse because some run off a circuit breaker. If all else fails, a bit "backyard" but you likely could break out the washer pumps from the system and make a simple push button on the dash to operate them.

Where can I find the fuse for the wipers for my 2002 Lincoln town car

Highly doubtful it being a blown fuse . Fuse's don't just blow , short circuit to ground or high current draw . Faulty component , wiper motor , wiper control module more likely . Free wiring diagrams here Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Under system click on body & accessories . then under subsystem click on wiper / washer , Click the search button ,then the blue link . Looking at the diagram i see the wiper switch is a input to the wiper control module .

The windshield wipers are controlled by the wiper control module and the driver-operated multi-function switch on the steering column, with the ignition switch in RUN or ACC position.
There are four modes of wiper operation: OFF position, the wipers move to and stay in the park position; Interval position, the wiper control module causes the wipers to cycle, separated by pauses, pause time length being determined by switch location; LO position, the wipers will operate at low speed continuously; HI position, the wipers will operate at high speed continuously.
The windshield washers are controlled by pressing inward on the wiper switch end of the multi-function switch. The washers will operate as long as the switch is depressed. If the wipers are in the OFF or Interval operating mode, the wipers will begin in LO speed and the washer pump will pump fluid from the reservoir to the nozzles. When the switch is released, the wipers will complete three cycles and then return to their previous setting. In LO or HI mode, no change in wiper operation will occur during washer operation.
The washer fluid level sensor is in the windshield washer reservoir (17618) and is monitored by the hybrid electronic instrument cluster (HEC) and displays a WASHER message when the fluid level is low. The washer fluid level sensor and windshield washer reservoir are replaced as an assembly.

2010 Reg Ford Focus 5 door hatch rear screen wash not working. Front is OK. How do I fix it?

the washer fluid could be empty / the fuse for the wiper blew / the relay went bad /if you tried to use the wipers without clearing ice away you blew the fuse/ if you just put water in instead of washer fluid it's frozen/ if the wiper works and there is windshield fluid in the tank and not water and all fuses are good the pump motor for the fluid went and is easy to change

1997 Jeep Cherokee -- Do the front windshield wipers/washer fluid have a fuse? It isn't listed in my owners guide in either of the fuse box locations. They stopped working.

wipers and washers usually have a fuse,
i may be mixed with another fuse.
the best thing to do is check each fuse in turn and see if one is blown or has
corroded connections.

I hope this was helpful.

Hi...I have a 1999 Jeep cherokee Sport. The windshield washer quit..dont know if it is a clogged line or a pump. Not hearing the pump when I activate. Also lines appear to be hidden.

This is most likely due to the washer pump going out. I just replaced mine on my 2000 cherokee. There is a front and back pump which is located under the drivers side fender. You will have to remove the plastic corner bumper to get access to the pumps. This is an easy job to do yourself. Dont forget to have something ready to drain the fluid into when you remove the pump from the washer tank. The front pump is located below the rear pump.

My 96 Jeep GC windshield washer isn't squirting. I can hear it run when pushing the washer button and I hear fluid running ; but it doesn't spray on the windshield. Also , my wiper blade in the rear window...

your rear wiper motor might be faulty,in the front i would check your fluid level-if it is full and you hear the pump running-check your washer lines to see if they are pinched-usually around where the hood closes

Both the front and rear washers are not working, which fuse controls this?

When you attempt to use you washers do you 1 hear a noise and no fluid or 2 if no noise no fluid, skip to 3 If 1 check your reservoir fluid level if full check nozzles for wax- polish blocking opening if clean. trace windshield hose to reservoir pull both end loose and Blow air through if clear push back on.
3 Check fuse panel if not marked wiper/washer and you do not have a manual replace all broken fuses your bound to get it that way

Washer fluid will not spray in 1999 Jeep Cherokee sport

If there is a hum when you press the washer button but no fluid than try cleaning the holes where the fluid comes out if that don't work than try replacing the supply hoses. If there is no hum than first check the fuses and if they arn't blown than you more than likly have a faulty motor. Both? unlikely but not impossible. Good luck.
