Washer fluid pump...

Recommended Posts

So I wasnt getting any spray out of my nozzles.....check out the connections and both had broken off at the fluid tube at the nozzles under the hood. I think I got most of the broken nozzle pieces out of the tubes. Put new nozzles in, and now Im getting fluid out of the nozzles but they arent making it up onto the windshield.

What do you think the problem is.

A- tubes are clogged? I blew through the ends of them and blew bubbles in the resevoir.

B- pump is dying or not pushing hard enough? Is this an option, that the pump is only half power or is the pump a "it either works or it doesnt"?


Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks all

I would place the blame on the pump. Forced spraying in cold weather increases wear and tear on that component, causes overheating, and thus breakdown over time. Possible causes as listed by the FSM (for inoperative pump):

  • Open or short to ground in circuit CRW07 (GY/BN), CRW14 (BU/WH), CRW20 (GY/YE) or CRW23 (VT/GN)
  • Multi-function switch
  • Washer pump motor
  • Windshield wiper motor
  • Rear window wiper motor

If you stop then restart spraying, does it work any better?


Removal and Installation

  1. Remove the RH front fender splash shield. For additional information, refer to Section 501-02 .
  1. CAUTION: When replacing the washer pump, be careful not to damage the rubber grommet.

    NOTE: To prevent spilling windshield washer fluid, drain the washer reservoir before washer pump removal.

    Remove the washer pump.
    1. Disconnect the electrical connector.
    2. Disconnect the hoses.
    3. Remove the washer pump.
  2. CAUTION: Do not operate the washer pump prior to filling the washer reservoir. Failure to follow these instructions may result in premature pump failure.

    To install, reverse the removal procedure.
    • Fill the washer reservoir with windshield washer fluid.
