Washer system

FRONT

The diagnosis found here addresses an inoperative washer pump or wipe-after-wash feature. If the washer pump operates, but no washer fluid is emitted from the washer nozzles, be certain to check the fluid level in the reservoir. Check for ice or other foreign material in the reservoir, and for pinched, disconnected, broken, or incorrectly routed washer system plumbing. For circuit descriptions and diagrams, refer to 8W-53 - Wipers in Group 8W - Wiring Diagrams.

WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, REFER TO GROUP 8M - PASSIVE RESTRAINT SYSTEMS BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.

(1) Turn the ignition switch to the On position.

Turn the wiper switch to the Low or High speed position.

Check whether the wipers operate. If OK, go to Step 2. If not OK, see Wiper System in the Diagnosis and Testing section of this group.

(2) Turn the wiper switch to the Off position.

Depress the washer switch. The washer pump should operate and the wipers should operate for as long as the washer switch is depressed. The wipers should continue to operate for about three sweep cycles after the switch is released before they park. If the wipers are OK, but the washers are not, go to Step 3. If the washers are OK, but the wipers are not, go to Step 5.

(3) Turn the ignition switch to the Off position.

Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

Unplug the washer pump wire harness connector.

Measure the resistance between the ground circuit cavity of the washer pump wire harness connector and a good ground. The meter should read zero ohms. If OK, go to Step 4. If not OK, repair the circuit to ground as required.

(4) Connect the battery negative cable. Turn the ignition switch to the On position. With the washer switch depressed, measure the voltage at the washer switch output circuit cavity of the washer pump wire harness connector. The meter should read battery voltage. If OK, replace the faulty pump. If not OK, repair the open circuit as required.

(5) Turn the ignition switch to the Off position.

Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

Move the Central Timer Module (CTM) from its mounting position far enough so that the CTM wire harness connectors can be accessed. Refer to Central Timer Module in the Removal and Installation section of Group 8E - Instrument Panel Systems for the procedures. Unplug the 14-way wire harness connector from the CTM. Connect the battery negative cable. Turn the ignition switch to the On position.

With the washer switch depressed, check for battery voltage at the washer switch sense circuit cavity of the 14-way CTM wire harness connector. If OK, see Intermittent Wipe Relay in the Diagnosis and Testing section of this group. If not OK, repair the open circuit as required.

REAR

The diagnosis found here addresses an inoperative rear washer pump. If the washer pump operates, but no washer fluid is emitted from the washer nozzle, be certain to check the fluid level in the reservoir. Check for ice or other foreign material in the reservoir, and for pinched, disconnected, broken, or incorrectly routed washer system plumbing. For circuit descriptions and diagrams, refer to 8W-53 - Wipers in Group 8W - Wiring Diagrams.

WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, REFER TO GROUP 8M - PASSIVE RESTRAINT SYSTEMS BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.

(1) Turn the ignition switch to the On position.

Place the rear wiper and washer switch in the Wipe position. Check whether the rear wiper is operating.

If OK, go to Step 2. If not OK, see Wiper System in the Diagnosis and Testing section of this group.

(2) Turn the ignition switch to the Off position.

Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

Unplug the rear washer pump wire harness connector.

Check for continuity between the ground circuit cavity of the rear washer pump wire harness connector and a good ground. There should be continuity. If OK, go to Step 3. If not OK, repair the open circuit to ground as required.

(3) Connect the battery negative cable. Turn the ignition switch to the On position. Check for battery voltage at the rear washer motor control circuit cavity of the rear washer pump wire harness connector while the rear washer switch is actuated. If OK, replace the faulty pump. If not OK, go to Step 4.

(4) Turn the ignition switch to the Off position.

Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

Unplug the rear wiper and washer switch wire harness connector. Unplug the wire harness connector at the rear wiper motor. Check for continuity between the rear washer motor control circuit cavity of the rear washer pump wire harness connector and a good ground. There should be no continuity. If OK, go to Step 5. If not OK, repair the short circuit as required.

(5) Check for continuity between the rear washer motor control circuit cavities of the rear washer pump wire harness connector and the rear wiper and washer switch wire harness connector. There should be continuity. If OK, replace the faulty switch. If not OK, repair the open circuit as required.
