PostPosted: Sat Aug 07, 2010 12:27 pm    Post subject:  2000 Impala - winshield washer & cruise control not work Reply with quote

My cruise control and windsheild washer botth stopped working... Not sure if they happened at the same time as I just tried my cruise when I went on a trip last week.... My windsheild washer stopped in late spring...

I checked and replaced all the fuses but still no go... The washer would work intermittenly but now has completely failed... Windshield wipers are fine...

Any ideas?

Thanks kindly...

That was helpful. Laughing

Does your "cruise" light come on?

First thought is the multi function switch (AKA Turn signal stalk)
But that is just a guess any more info/symptoms you would like too add?

Check washer fluid pump and hoses for clogs. Connect a 12v power source to the pump after you remove it and make sure it pushes fluid.

As for the cruise control, have your cruise control module checked. Make sure the light on your steering wheel comes on. There could also be a short or a break in the wiring somewhere. Kinda hard things to diagnose, because its time consuming, but that should get ya goin'.

Are you sure it's the washer pump? It could be the nozzles. My 00 seems to have that all the time, especially since I rarely use the washers. Best way to check is to remove the hose one side at a time and run the washer. If you get fluid out of the hose, the nozzle is clogged. (I'm assuming that you have checked the washer tank and it's better than 1/2 full.) No fluid from the hose would indicate that the washer motor/pump is bad.

No...I've checked the washer tank and it's near full...

I'll do as you suggested and remove the hoze from one nozzle at a time... I'm off work this week so I can try it now...

OK...

Hoses and nozzles appear to be clear... I remove the hose from it's main connection on the passenger side (just above the battery) and I was able to blow clearly through the hose and out of both nozzles... I then blew into the hose into the fluid reservoir and could hear the fluid gurgling...

How do I remove the washer motor?

Remove battery or is it behind the passenger side fender?

Cheers

OEM Part # 89025062
Cost = $62.46

An aftermarket application may be available at a local parts store for about $20 cheaper.

Replaced the washer motor and still no go... I thought the new motor may have been faulty so I returned it but the store tested it and it was OK...

I noticed on the fuild bottle there is another electric device, looks like a float... Could that be the problem? The only other thing I can think of is replacing the washer switch which would mean replacing the turn signal light & cruise control stalk....

Any other ideas?

Yes...Test, don't guess...

Not trying to be funny, just giving you the benefit of 35 years in the car repair biz...Using a test light, do you have 12 volts at the pump motor?...Is the circuit grounded?...Did you use a test light on the fuses?...Did you blow through the nozzles from the pump end of the tubing?...

The main thing I learned over the years is there's more money wasted on unneeded parts than would be spent on a proper diagnosis... Question ...Ben

Yes... I blew through the nozzles and my test light is a 12 volt tester for automotive... I used it when I installed a new wiring harness in my '60 Vette about 4 years ago and I used the tester then....

I did replace the washer fuse... I tested the connection at the pump connection...

What's odd is yesterday I did get it to work when it was empty, so I put some fluid into the reservoir and it appeared to work but would not shut off when the wipers stopped... I did top up the reservoir and now it won't work at all... I suspect the multifuntion unit maybe bad... and/or the fluid level gauge.... Is there a way to bi-pass the fluid level gauge in the interim?

Without a wiring diagram, I'm having to guess - is the pump powered at all times and triggered through the ground circuit?...Or is it powered only when the switch is on?...With that in mind, since it's non-operable now, where do you have power and is your ground circuit complete?...

On the fluid level "gauge", I'm guessing this is just an indicator light which is triggered by either an open or closed circuit at the float...Determine which and unplug or jumper it accordingly...

Let us know what you find... Smile ...Ben
