Ford Focus Help (windshield washer fluid)

Hey guys I know this isn't a Ranger questions but if somebody could point me in the right direction that would be great.

My girls '02 focus stopped spraying WW fluid, no fluid and no noise from the pump. Is there a fuse FOR the pump? I looked through all the fuses in the car and all where good, the book (OEM ford book in glovebox) said nothing on any of the fuses as far as windshield washer fluid. I have heard they have a wierd 'hidden' fuse on the back of the panel but didnt think that it would be what the WW are hooked up to. Before I have to pull the fender off and check the motor manually, anybody know where the fuse may be?

According to the Ford Manual, there's no such hidden fuse. It looks to be that, if the front wipers are working properly, than any related pump relays(s) are good, since the wiper motor and pump motor are powered through the same circuit. As such, I would suspect either the switch or the motor.

Looks like Ill be pulling the fender to test the pump :(

Found this info on that fuse, not my problem but a good FYI.

From another forum somebodies auto door locks wouldnt work:

this is kind of late to probably help, but this just happened to my car last week...and you actually have to take a rachet and remove the fuse panel from under the dash, when you flip in over there is one fuse back there in slot #63 replace it with a 30 watt fuse and you are good to go....there are only two screws so it's pretty easy...hope this helps

The fuse you are talking about is located directly behind the fuse board. You need to remove the two bolts, then lower the board down and the fuse is on the back. It is a 20 Amp fuse, when it blows you can not use your remote control our use the power lock buttons to unlock the doors

I just put in a gallon of Peak -20 stuff...so I though no way would it freeze, sure as sh*t the lines where solid, I think even the pump was frozen up!! Got it thawed, hit the button and a little bit of fluid pooped out onto the hood and instantly froze WTF!?!?! So much for -20!!


Malydeen:
Yeah I saw that thread and my try and swing out there, I dont live very far away so I will check my schedule when it gets closer. I really want to see Interceptor's truck!
