Solve one problem (loss of power window/mirrors), and another pops up!

My W22 windshield washers do not work.

When I press the washer button wipers come on, but fluid is not pumped. There are no leaks from the resevoir, or indications of hose leaks. The pump does not appear to come on.

Checked for blown fuses, etc., but can find only a fuse for wipers, which is ok.

Never had an opportunity to use the washers since getting this new coach, so not sure how long the problem has existed.

Any ideas anyone?

The connection for the wipers and washer is made to the Windshield Wiper Switch/Pulse Control Module. The Pin B contact is connected by a pink wire and indicates circuit #94.

Located under the hood up on the fire wall would be the wiper/washer fuse. It's a 25Amp fuse located on the bottom right corner of the fuse block.

If you can put a test lamp on the wire that is connected to the pump and it lights up then you know that the pump is shot. If the lamp does not light up then you can reasonably assume that the "stalk" switch is bad.

Well ... that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks DriVer!

I presume from that if the fuse is blown that neither the wipers nor the washers would work.

Dagnabit! I sure hate to take that rig 150 miles one-way just for that. I may wait until something else breaks!

'Course if it's the stalk the shop will have to order it. Might have to order the motor if it's not the stalk.

Added after above:

Went out and checked under the hood. No windshield wiper fuse in that block. Fuses for ABS, A/C compressors, stuff like that.

There is a fuse for wipers under the dash, but it's good.

Is there another fuse block under the hood in addition to the one with the heavy duty (50 amp) stuff?

I thought I saw something else but that didn't prove itself out this morning while reviewing my documentation.

Thanks DriVer!

I'll check further for more loose connections before making the long trek to the WH authorized dealer.

I know this thread is old but I now have the same problem... wipers but no washer. No voltage appears to be getting to the pump.

Was your original problem resolved or does anyone else have any experience with this problem? Fuses all appear to be good so it's looking like the multifunction lever.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Thanks for the offer Driver.

Turns out the washer pump seized causing the pulse module to die. I think I'll replace the whole setup with a generic tank and pump then put a relay in to drive it from the multi-function switch. Cheaper than driving to a dealer and I doubt WH would cover it.

Let's face it there's few RV services down here on the beach and even then they're limited.

The service network is a little thin in SC. With the cost of gas it's cheaper to fix it myself using parts from Walmart!
