Windshield Washers Not Spraying

I have a 2006 Honda CRV. The windshield washer spray only dribbles out when activated. If I release the hood latch, it works great. The nozzles seem to be clearing the hood, no water on hood. Is there a ground involved here?

I have the same vehicle but it's a 2000. Same issue also except mine doesn't work with hood open. Sounds like there is something kinking the line when your hood is closed. Check the line, follow it from reservoir to nozzle, should see a dent or some sign of being closed off. What I am going to try is using a compressed air sprayer (as in electronic duster, just air in s can) & disconnect nozzle & should see bubbling in reservoir (fill 1st) if clears line. If not few other things t try b4 replacing lines. Oh ya, 1st off make sure you hear pump running. In your case pump seems to be running. Hope this helps!

Did you ever fix this Bob? it's the most bizarre thing. Mine works fine when hood open...95% shut...98% shut...but when hood is shut it slows to a dribble.


No obvious sign of the hood interfering with tubing. A mystery!
