I had this problem with my Villager and continue to have it with my Quest. The Villager went back to the dealer who told me that there were no problems that they could find but it was a common problem with the Quest and Villager. When I need to use the fluid I press and release the switch until the pump kicks on and the fluid sprays. It's a pain but it always comes on after 30 secs. of working the switch. There is a really good Nissan mechanic on who answers 5 questions a day. Sometimes you may have to wait until midnight to get a question in. I also had this same problem with my 97 Quest. It turned out to be a combination of two issues. #1: Crud in the lines, had to use compressed air and a little bit of patience to blow out and rinse the lines a couple of times. # 2 the switch on the steering column as you already know is intermittent. Since I have other issues with the van that are higher on the priority list I've learned where the "sweet spot" is on the switch to get it to work. I simply press in on the switch ( like your supposed to) then gently twist back and forth as if your changing wiper speed until the washer pump energizes. hope this helps.
