Washer fluid problems

Anyone ever have their washer fluid just stop working? I checked the fluid level it's all topped off but still no fluid flows when pull to wash. Checked the fuses and they look good. Am I overlooking something?

Nope, the fluid always seems to work, if it gets to the windshield.

Have someone activate them while listening near the resevoir. Does the pump run?

If so, check the hoses.

If not, check the voltage at the pump.

No voltage, check the wiring and switches.

Voltage there, replace the pump.

Agreed, but do the checks first. Nothing like buying pump, and when installing, find out the connect becamse disconnected, or a hose chafed through.

I will check it out, I am in the middle of a move, so havent had a whole lot of time to check it out. Texas the only state where you can move 10 hours away and still be in the same state. I was reading other post on here and realized I have alot to learn about BMW, I have been paying 90 bucks for a oil change every 3000 miles. I have had Mustangs and a IROC, but cant make me smile like my M3.
