My 2012 Buick Enclave windshield washer fluid does not work…

Customer Question
My 2012 Buick Enclave...

My 2012 Buick Enclave windshield washer fluid does not work in the front or the back.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, which fluid are you talking about? And what color and consistency is it?

Its windshield washer fluid blue i guess

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Enclave yourself? What have you tried so far?

The fuses are fine and the motor does not make any sounds.

The first step is to access the motor wires and have a test light and check for power and ground at the connector when your engaging the pump, you may need a helper to engage the washer motor while you test each wire
