Windshield water not pumping...

Windshield water not pumping. Reservoir is filled. Do not hear pump. 2004 S60 Volvo. I wonder if it is the fuse or the pump. No warning regarding a system issue.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the vehicle's manual yet?

Not yet

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your S60 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have not tried yet attempting to isolate issue

Good afternoon, I hope you are doing great. I would be happy to assist you with this.It is most likely going to be a power issue, most common is a burnt fuse but it is not unheard of for these motors to fail as well. Do you have a multimeter that we can use for a few voltage tests?

no; how would I go about testing?
Volvo Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 6 months ago
You will just need to test the power/ground signal at the washer pump, this will let us know if it has power and if it is a pump issue
