Hello I can help,

Do you have a voltmeter to check the circuit if I guide you?

Expert:  George H. replied 1 year ago.

You do have a voltmeter? Can you get to the washer motor connector and see if you get 12 volts when you activate the switch?. mPut the meter leads into the connector in place of the washer motor connector

Let me know how I can help

Thank you

Sorry I was out in the shop, you have 5 wires on your washer motor?

After 8 days we need to get synched so I can help.

You should have a dark green and a black wire to the pump. Let me know what you are seeing

Expert:  George H. replied 1 year ago.

I agree, no need for a call here.

What color are the wires that had power. The washer motor only has 2 pins, a green and a black

4 PM what timezone?

I live in dauphin co. Pa wont have time to look at it til saturday
Expert:  George H. replied 12 months ago.

OK, I will watch for your post on Saturday. I am in the eastern time zone.

You said you have 5 wires? The washer motor only has two so be sure you have the testlight in the washer motor connector taking the place of the motor. If it lights when you activate the washer switch then repolace the motor if it does not let me know and we can check the rest of the circuit.

Black yellow brown black lights when key is on and switch turned once
Expert:  George H. replied 12 months ago.

I am confused, you are testing at the washer motor? It only has two wires? You should have a red and a black, is that what you are seeing?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Black, yellow, brown across the top on the plug and a green and a gray on bottom and the motor was already replaced
Expert:  George H. replied 12 months ago.

What plug where?

The motor only has two wires to it.

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Replaced wiper motor on a 2093 buick rendezous and that is the plug
Expert:  George H. replied 12 months ago.

The washer motor is what you are working on, why are you testing at the wiper motor?

Expert:  George H. replied 12 months ago.

OK, so you need to check at the washer motor connector with the light taking the place of the motor. If that does not show light when you activate the washer switch then we go to the multi switch on the column. The wiper motor is not involved in the washer circuit.

The reason i contacted u was because wipers stoped working and replaced the whole motor and ass

This is the question you posted

"I put a new front windshield washer motor in a 2003 buick rendivous cxl awd it still does not work before I go further is their any other fuses or relays I need to know about and if it would be signel handel can I get a dash switch"

You now need to troubleshoot a wiper motor?

Did the wipers work before you replaced the washer motor?

Have you checked at the wiper/washer switch for signal before replacing the motors?
