Windshield washers not working?

Checked the manual and yes, we are using the right control, the right way. I checked and topped up the washer fluid as well as installed what appeared to be missing fuses for the washers. (#48 IIRC) Are there any tricks or things I might try to get the windshield washers working? I'm not hearing a pump or any noises when I try to use the washers. The wipers go back and forth a couple times, but no washers.

The pump is a known weakness. Too much heat from the exhaust causes failure. New pump is $30 on Amazon.

Thanks for the inputs. The car is still under warranty, so hopefully the washer pump will be covered. (??)

I also had same problem

I ordered a washer pump from ebay for less than $30 w shipping and replaced it myself if took less than 10 mins an it works perfectly. First I checked the lines, fuses, etc and it was the pump. Good luck

Interesting... Where is the pump located? Close the exhaust or manifold where it's picking up heat from the descriptions above. Can anyone point me to general location?

the pump is located...

Its the black object the size of a C battery on the corner of the washer fill tank. It has a hose coming out of it and a black plug on the top of it. .you can't miss it. I hope this helps.

I've looked a couple of times now and I can't locate the actual resevoir tank. The filler 'neck' straight down and under a heat shield type cover. Is the tank accesssible from the fender well, or maybe from under the car? The replacement pumps look to be pretty easy to find are are even stocked at the local autozone.

Behind the fender looks like it would be squeezed into the firewall somewhere and I don't see anyplace for it there so I'll assume you mean under the fender liner. I'll pull the wheel and see what's hiding under there...
