Windshield Washer Pump not Working.?
My vehicle is having troubles with the windshield washer pump. When i pull the lever there is no pumping sound or water being sprayed onto the windshield, tho the wipers still work. I've already tested the wiring and all is fine. The problem appears to be either the pump itself or a free floating wire.
The unnconnected wire is apart of a set that goes into a plug beneath the washer reservoir. My guess is the wire came disconnected from the plug and requires reattchment. My problem is when i go to strip the wire sheeth expecting to see some silver or copper looking wire underneath, what i actually get is more white-green lithium-like paste within the wire. Ok wheres the actual wiring for me to connect back to the plug?
Perhaps this is normal and the wire does not require reattaching? In such a case I'd have to conclude the pump is to blame. Any ideas on how i can also test the pump and even replace it if necessary. It seems fixed to the reservoir somehow.
