I don't know unless the pump is bad. I have a 98 XLT that the front washer doesn't work but the back one does. So it's not the pump since the same pump is used for the front and back. It may be the switch, GEM, or a relay... but I'm not smart Enough to troubleshooting.

either the washer motor has burned out or there is dirt in the washer lines plugging up the washer nozzles.

If you were in a wreck you could have damaged your washer fluid reservoir or hoses leading to the spray nozzles. Slightly fill your reservoir with water and observe for leaks.

Your washer fluid is low, or the indicator is stuck. The washer bottle would have to be removed and checked.

Possibly freezing. Make sure you are using Windshield Washer Fluid and not water.

If Your Question Is That You Are Not Getting Much Water Onto The Windshield. Look For The Screen To Be Partially Stopped Up In The Washer Fluid Tank Or The Hose. Also You Could Have A Small Hole In The Line Not Allowing The Unit To Pull The Fluid To The Wipers.

I have a 02 Explorer and the washer pump is on the windshield washer tank. So I would check there on your truck. Good luck.

You can clean the windshield of a Prius, much like you would any other car. Use a windshield washer fluid and a cloth rag on the windshield to scrape off all the dust, dirt and grime. You can also use the windshield washer cleaning lever/fluid that is found inside the car, at your convenience, if the dirt isn't too hard stuck onto the windshield.

The year, make and model info would be extremely helpful.

User Avatar

because you used too much washing your windshield with your windshield wipers My best guess would be a cracked hose or loose connection at the bottom.

Sound to me like your wiper motor is out. The water pump is totally separate from the wiper motor. Good Luck!!!

User Avatar

Debris in the hoses or reservoir could cause the motor to overheat. Also, running the pump without fluid could do the same.

User Avatar

Ummm...I think it would be safe to say that the washer motor is faulty. Do the wipers work when you push the windshield washer button? Good luck, Mr. Dog

You need to have the brake fluid changed immediately. Washer fluid will damage all of the seals in the brake system

User Avatar

the answer is yes and no if the washer fuse is blown then that would be the first thing to check in that circut, and no the chech engine light only comes on when computer monitered circuits are involved not accessories such as windshield washers you will need to scan the cars ecm in order to pinpoint what controled circut is out of parameters

I don't know the reaction it would have on the coolant but I would advise you to flush out your system immediately and put in fresh coolant.

User Avatar

i would have to say to take it to a shop they can fix it for you spend the money its not a part to mess with

User Avatar

I would start by looking under your washer reservoir. it will be a small cylindrical pump sticking out of the bottom. just pull it out and connect the new one in its place.

The front and rear windshield washers operate independently of each other. They are two completely separate units. Check your fuse box first to look for a blown fuse. If not, the pump is at the bottom of the windshield washer fluid container located in the front corner of the engine compartment.
