What fuse is responsible for the windshield washer pump on a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue?

I doubt it is different from the 1998 model I have. The fuse is

the same one that feeds the wiper motor and the circuit card for

the intermittent wipers. The washer pump motor is fed from this

circuit, so if the wipers work, the fuse is not blown. The pump

itself is on the solvent tank between the right front fender and

the battery. If a helper can hear the pump run when you press the

washer button with the key in the "on" position, the indication is

that the line is plugged or the tank is empty. If the pump is

silent, you have a bad power connection, a bad ground, or a failed

pump motor.

Good luck! New pumps ~ $35-$50 for OEM, ~$23 for a similar

aftermarket pump.

I never figured out the fuse, but you can test for voltage to it

when the switch is pushed on. I just did this on my 2000, ended up

replacing the pump. The easiest way to get to it is to remove the

front passenger tire wheel well cover, at least enough of it to get

your hand in there.
