windshield fluid problem...

Ok here is the situation. My car wont spray the window with windshield fluid, but the wipers work. basically, its not sucking water from the tank to spray onto the window. now, i checked the fuse, its fine, i swapped motors, and it still doesnt work. im beginning to think, that it is not getting any electricity running to the motor... any suggestions? my window ghets dirty fast, and its a PIA to drive...

Hook up straight 12v power to the motor, if it works then you know its an electrical problem, probably a wire.

Do you hear like a wining noise coming from the motor or the nozzles when you press for the fluid to come out?

Well since you said the motors were swapped and you still got no fluid coming out then i would guess theres no power going to the motor.

I would check the wires at the base of the plug of the washer motor, alot of times they just break.

i had the same problem and it was the wires that where broken or rusted out. trace the wire as far back as you can . iam sure that you will find the problem there. or it could be the the plug it self. use a teat light to check if you have power but some one has to be in side the car so they can push the lever.

check and make sure your lines are plugged in. My car was in the shop last week and the passenger side was unplugged and the driver side was loose, but now they both work fine.
