Washer jets aren't working

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I've not been using my car alot lately, maybe once a week, due to money issues and all that blah blah.

Got in my car at 7:30am this morning and went to squirt my front window screen to clear the muck off it, and my washer jets didn't work. The thing is, I couldn't even hear the motor working? That's what I am worried/asking about.

When my water jets have been empty/iced up before, and I pressed the knob I could always hear the motor running/working (that whining noise). But this morning there is no sound what so ever, it's all completely dead when I press the knob. I tried the back washer jet as well and that's dead too!

What could this be? A fuse gone? (sorry, I'm really not good with this stuff at all!). I've looked in my user manual and found: "Fuse 53 Reverse light, heated washer jets"... so I will check that out in the morning.

But if it isn't that, what else could it be? I have a 2002 Focus 1.6 Zetec, if that helps :blink::unsure:

Most likely the fuse. If not your pumps probably nackerd. It's not that hard to change yourself. Can't remember what side it's on. Different sides between the mk1's and 2's I think

et a buit

Yep sounds about right ! As stated the fuse is a good point to start use a similar fuse for example the rear windscreen and test it that way, but if not and you use different types of screenwash you can get a build up of "slime" which cloggs the pum.

As far as i believe the pump is most often on the same side as the tank so for mk2 its driver side !

good luck
