Angry Problems with window washer...help please!!

Ok, I have a full reservoir of window washer fluid. When I press the button, nothing comes out, the motor isn't even running! I thought it would be frozen or disconnected lines, but why wouldn't I hear the motor running... Can anyone help?

Thanks for taking the time to read this

both sets?

the cobalt has two sets of fuses, one under the hood, one in the center console located on the passengter side

the actual fuse for the motor is located under the hood, but for the washer switch, it's in the interior panel

try pulling them out(both fuses), and putting new ones in, then give it a try

Hi!

Your washer motor may be running and you just can't hear it.

Recently, it got very cold here in the Midwest. My washer's quit working too one day, around 18 deg. I thought it had quit too, I couldn't hear it. I finally stopped, popped the hood and had my wife hit the button while I was outside...then I could hear it, but barely. I finally got things flowing, flushed out the junk dealer washer fluid and added the good stuff (RainX orange). No problem freezing since.

How did you get them working? did you do anything with the fuses?

How good is the rainX? doesnt it leave a think res on your windsheild? i dealt with rainX before (not the washer fluid) and couldnt get the stuff off. Will the washer fluid do the same?
