Wiper fluid not working?? HELP
 
:confused:I have a 2012 WK2 Limited, I have had it for one week today, and while driving into work (we got a wintry mix last night) I had to use my windshield wiper fluid, except nothing came out. This was the first time I had to use the fluid, the rear spray worked and fluid came out, when I turn the knob for the front all I hear is the pump, but nothing coming out, I do not believe it is leaking underneath. I checked the tubes and everything seems to be connected. Also, the Wiper Washer fluid light is not on.


Any suggestions?

Sorry if this sounds too simple to be true but when you say turn the knob, there isn't a turn of the knob, just a push of the turn signal stalk into the steering column to make the front washer fluid come out.

Hey, no fail in my opinion. Most of us have had those moments. And look on the bright side - your problem is solved. What better feeling is there than that? :thumbsup:

I did the same thing when I was first trying to use mine. It is just part of getting used to driving a different vehicle.

Yeah when I tried to reset the oil change light I was pumping the brake not the gas, needed someone on the forum to point that out for me. That was my "duh" moment ha ha ha.

For the first week or so I kept flipping on the high beams instead of getting the front wiper fluid.

With every new vehicle I'm amazed at all the controls they can pack on the control stalk. I can remember when all it did was activate the turn signals!
