My washer jets have packed in too.

I've blown down the pipes & the reservour bubbles showing the lines are clear. The motor makes it's usual noise & all contacts seem fine, but a dribble of water comes through only one jet & the other just splutters air.

It seems to me that a pipe may of perished & split somewhere.

Looks like yet another time consuming tedious job finding the route.

It might seem a silly job but when you're stuck behind a dirty dumper truck on a damp road you are screwed. It's actually quite a dangerous problem.

You might have some wiring problems or the washer pump is already busted. Why not try applying WD-40 to the pump? WD-40 fixed my door look actuator so this might do the trick as well. Some fluid also might froze as well making it clogged.

Any idea what could be causing this?

I had a problem once where the washer jets didn't work. What had happened is:
1) Windscreen fluid froze in the reservoir and pump.
2) I pressed (and held) the washer button but the pump motor could not move.
3) The pump drew too much current and blew the fuse.

Replacing the fuse fixed my problem. (It wasn't on a cee'd though.)

So, this could explain why the fuse blew, if that is the cause of the problem.

If the washer fluid has frozen (and expanded) inside the pump the pump could be damaged.
Try replacing the fuse first (well, inspect it) to see if that fixes the problem.
Also, in future use "proper" winter screenwash in winter so it doesn't freeze.
I hope that helps.

My washing pump is "dead", does not sound at all. I suspect the fuse.

But I can not find it.

My car is a Kia Ceed from 2010. It has two fuses inside the car named:
* Front wiper
* Rear wiper.
Both front and rear wiper works though, but none of the washers.

In the engine compartment there are no fuses for this, but there are a relay called "WIPER".

Anyone?

I have had a look at the manual and I can't see a fuse listed for the washers. It may be paired up with other equipment, Is there anything else not working?

That is my idea also. But I can not find anything else not working, but there might be of course...

Hi Gav,

Sorry to but in the conversation but I do have the issue you describe with the front and rear wipers activating when activating the washer. The pump was bad and has been replaced but still does not work. The wiper fuse is OK. Any ideas?

Default Windshield Washer pump not working

Have you figured out what the issue was? I have a 2010 Kia Soul and the resovoir was dry, so I filled it up with fluid and went to use it, and nothing. Nothing from the front or back, but the wipers work fine. I too don't see a fuse for it and do not hear anything from the motor. Everything else, that I can tell, works fine. So I am stuck

The ideal way would be to measure the voltage at the pump with a voltmeter or multimeter.(you will need an assistant for this)
That will prove things one way or another.
If you have no voltage then it is going to be a fuse/switch/relay etc.
If you have voltage and the pump still doesn't run then it's the pump that is the problem.

Simples.

Hope this helps.

I have found a similar problem when my water jets went empty and once I refilled them the system did not work, or more to the point the pump has no longer become active. Any suggestions.
