windshield washer won't spray

My Washer fluid won't spray when I got the button. The wipers come on but nothing is coming out of the nozzles. I'm guessing the pump is probably seized up but I'm not sure where to check first and I don't know where exactly the pump is without digging around to find the thing.

The pump is located in the bottom of the fluid reservoir. Pull the reservoir out, remove the pump and test it first. I thought mine was bad but it turned out to be corrosion in the connector. A good cleaning and a dab of dielectric grease and I have had no issues in over a year.

Thought mine was bad & then noticed I had the summer fluid in it and it was froze. Put it in heated shop for a couple hours and it worked fine. Drained out old fluid & filled with winter fluid.

Been there done that. Just last month, as a matter of fact.

It's 60 outside. I don't think that's the issue. That was my first thought because it was -8 last month. Oh ky. I love your bipolar weather.
