I would think if the switch in the turn signal lever has power, that the relay should click regardless if the motor is bad or not. The washer motor relay does not click at all even though it is good.
The washer fluid container is buried between the battery and the head lights and will require extensive dis-assembly to get to the motor and wiring, so an electrical diagram of the washer motor circuit would be nice before hand.
Thanks for the diagram. Agreed. When I push the wash tab on the turn signal arm forward to start the cycle, the wipers cycle several times and then shut off as they should, however the washer fluid pump does not run. Again, today I checked the washer motor pump relay and found that the fuse is good and that the relay does not energize as it should even when a known good relay is substituted. Since the relay does not energize, the motor cannot run and the wipers can.
I assume that this is a computer controlled function and no wire actually goes to the relay from the switch. That being said, I ran the battery dead a couple of months ago and am wondering if this could have something to do with it. Could this function be messed up in the computer?
