FORD EXPLORER FUSE PROBLEM

2000 Ford Explorer

Windshield Washer is not working. Fuse 12 was blown. Replaced fuse, and tried washer again. Still not working, and new fuse is blown. Which is more likely to cause this, the relay, or the multi-function switch? The wipers do work.

Thanks!

I would start with checking the pump motor itself. IT is located at the bottom of the washer jug.

Read up a little bit, and found the front and rear washers use the same motor. Replaced the fuse again, and hit the switch for the rear washer. It works, so the motor is fine. When it gets a little warmer, I may try to swap the front and rear relays. Hopefully that will help me narrow it down to the relay or the multi-function switch.

Thanks!
