Windshield Washer System

Hi to ALL!!! I been having problems with my windshield washer system (From the time I bought a car (7-9 months ago)) - not spraying and even no sound from the pump. SO TODAY i check all connectors and water tubs and they all OK! I almost pulled out the washer fluid reservoir to see my pump and so by chance I saw the collapse of the insulating tube in which I found broken wires. Connect them together and-the miracle it work!!! pictures will say more......

Interesting... What you repaired there was just the connector to washer fluid level sensor. The washer pumps (one for the windshield and one for the headlights) are located on the bottom, outboard side of the reservoir. You have to pull the belly pan off to get at them.

They must share a common ground wire

Very interesting

Thank you for the write up and pics. I had no idea that that system was buried so deep in the car.
