I have a problem, and I have done a search. My wipers work fine, but my washers don't work at all. I recently installed a new/used washer pump. There were two wires, violet/ black and brown/black. I connected these up to the pump. I also connected/checked the wires that go to the front of the washer resivour. Still, nothing happens; I don't hear the motor turn on at all. I looked at Bentley's and they suggest to check the fuse which I'm sure is good because like I said, the wipers work fine. Bentley's mentions checking the relay, but if the relay was bad, would the wipers work? In any case, I'm tired of pulling into Hess stations and finding empty washer buckets and dry squeegees. I'd really like to have winshield washers, and any help or suggestions you can provide would really be helpful. :dunno:

i had a similar problem. I hooked the pump striaght to my car battery. Its one of the easiest ways to eliminate that possibility. Turned out my connector was corroded

Blocked washer

One squirter is blocked. The other works. Is there an easy way to clean it out or do I have to go to a junk yard and get a replacement? Also, if I go around a curve, my wiper fluid light comes one. Anybody dealt with this one?

hook a compressor to your hose and blow it out. i had to do that a couple of times. also take a look under the hood with the squirter thing is to make sure it is still connected to the hose. You might have to take the hood liner off some.

Hmm...the curve thing sounds like your washer tank is too low...but assuming you've checked that, you may just need to replace or clean the plug in sensor on the tank.
