you can also check your fuses...it could just be a blown fuse.

so i ended up checking out all the fuses and everything seemed ok....the next day it was above freezing and the windsheild washers were working just fine. ...then again the next night (9 degrees) they stopped working. i remembered there being a fuse for left and righ washer nozzles...i checked them and the fuse is fine. im sure it has to be the nopzzle heaters if it works when it warmer out and not when its really cold.

see if you can blow out the lines completely. Then refill with water and an additive so it won't freeze. some of that shit you get at the gas station is too thick, messes up the pump.

Add vodka into the tank should do the trick, lowering the freezing point.

well when i originally noticed that my washers wernt working i think i may have been out of fluid....i was really low but not out, i bought some good new stuff with a freezing point of -25f. and on one of the warmer days when they worked i turned them on for a long time to get the old fluid out.... they didnt work again last night car said 6 degrees but they work now 42 degrees

Did you ever get your washers working again? My rear washer quit on me and I don't know why. It's been too cold lately to see if warm weather might cure it. I wanted to blow out the lines with my air compressor but am not sure how to even get to them!

I can definitely hear the motor, so I believe that's working (could be running and not pumping, but I doubt it). The fact that my front ones work makes me think it's not frozen (I have -25 fluid in there), so i suspect some sort of blockage or a disconnected line. I'll have to figure out the best way to access the lines near the reservoir.

Today I pulled the foglight grill to see if I could get at the lines near the reservoir, but I'm not sure how they come off. Do they just pull off? I was afraid of breaking it and having all the fluid run all over the place. So I put the grill back on and put a basketball needle valve on my compressor and tried to blow air back thru the line from the nozzle on the back window to the reservoir. Well, I could actually hear the fluid in the reservoir bubbling from the air running, but when I go to use the washer pump, i got like one little spurt and that was it. And now I can't hear the pump going anymore! May as well just take it to the dealer. Grrrrr!

I may have found the culprit:

I'll have to tear the hatch panel off and see.

Took it to the dealer today since I have a bumper to bumper warranty and they said they need to order some kind of nozzle for the wiper motor in the back. so i take it back in 2 days from now. at least they washed my car for me!

update: dealer never got the part in yet, but for some reason the washer is working again. maybe he fixed something when he took it apart to see what's wrong? maybe it thawed out? don't know.

The dealer never called me back to fix my rear washer, but magically it has been working since they put it back together again. But sometimes it will not work for days, then all of a sudden start working again. My rear wiper also decided not to work for a couple days, then after restarting (rebooting?) it's been working fine too. Weird electro-voodoo.
