Default Windshield Washer

My windshield washer quit working. Is there a fuse associated with it? Are there any other things to look at?

Mike - where are you from?

Mine quit working also, and there was this big puddle of washer fluid under the tanks (one for front, one for rear). It turns out that a pack rat had wanted to see what windshiield washing fluid tasted like... Have to replace the hoses to both tanks, or at least splice a section into them.

Yes there is a fuse. You can download a Manual from one of the threads, it will tell you where the fuse is. Do you have mice/rats where you live? They could be the cause, eating the wiring...
