While you may not give it much thought, your windshield washer pump is an important component when it comes to keeping your Toyota vehicle's windshield clean.
How Your Windshield Washer Pump Works
These days, the windshield washer pump is a self-contained unit with a small electric motor. It usually sits in the lower portion of the fluid tank, making it easier for the pump to draw the fluid out. When you operate the washer switch, it sends a signal to the control module that operates the pump. The pump pulls washer fluid out and sends it through hoses to the washer jets. Those jets spray fluid onto the windshield, and your wipers use that to help clear the way and make it easier for you to see the road ahead.
How to Identify Windshield Washer Pump Problems
Unfortunately, windshield washer pumps can go bad. Signs of this include:
- No fluid sprays onto your windshield
- The washer fluid sprays unevenly
- The pump doesn't work
