Front Windshield Washer Pump Not Working

I have a 2014 Ford Edge. It has one washer pump that works the front and rear window washer. The back will spray, but the front won't. I have replaced the pump the and the wiper switch on the steering column. And still the same. I have power going to the pump, but the pump won't do anything when try to spray for the front.

You probably have a clogged nozzle. Use a pin to clear out the clog and then compressed air to flush it out. See the whole article here.

There are several things that could need fixing but a clogged nozzle ranks high on the list.

  • There is also the possibility of a blown fuse. There is probably a fuse for the front and back washers so check this out. You can find the location of your fuse box in your owner's manual but sometimes it is in clear view.
  • Many times the lid to the box will have the fuse identification map on it.
  • "Solution: Remove the fuse carefully there may be a tool to remove fuses on the box lid and check whether it has blown.

    Youll likely see a broken wire or scorch marks if it has. If its no good, replace it with a new fuse of the same amperage rating. Now start your vehicle and try the washers.
  • There are several other things to check but these sites give very clear instructions:
  • www.wikihow.com/Troubleshoot-a-Windshield-Washer...
  • www.familyhandyman.com/.../
  • If you cannot find the problem, stop by your local auto parts store and ask them to help you find the problem. Occasionally, they will have someone that can spot the problem right off, but if not, try the next auto parts store down the street.
