This has been an ongoing issue for almost a year now and it's starting to get annoying not having it. But my windshield wiper fluid won't work at all. My windshield wipers work but not the fluid. It has plenty of fluid in it but I can't seem to figure out what the problem is. Has anyone ran into this before?

I've heard the motor is supposed to pull about 6A. If the current is excessive the motor pump impeller may be jammed or the motor may be seized.

If you are a gambler put 24v across the motor for maybe two seconds and see if everything starts working.

Actually when I went outside to try it worked fine. It wasn't working but I'm guessing the guy that replaced my clutch tried and it didn't work so he did whatever needed fixing. I'm glad that was a typo I would do without my fluid for $400 haha

If it intermittently fails to work keep track of the time between failures. You'll need it later to tell to some degree of certainty if a fix worked.

BTW. . .

I had a problem locating the nozzles for the washer fluid in order to free them from ice.

I found out that when the hood is up they won't spray so my locating efforts were hampered.

It then occurred to me that I paid for a very complex car which is designed to thwart the shade tree mechanic, so some of the money I paid went into impeding my own repair/maintenance efforts.

Is this a great country, or what???
