1998 Deville w/s washer problem
My thanks to the Cadillac Forum for accepting my Membership! I just purchased a '98 Deville in exceptionally great condition. I love the luxurious interior and easy chair ride. I only have one question however about the windshield washer. Nothing happens, no click, no noise of any kind. I've checked fuses and nothing blown. The mechanic I bought it from replaced the pump motor before I bought it but stopped there after that was no remedy. is there a relay for This? the wipers themselves work great, just the washer feature is DOA.

Washer goes through the wiper motor after the switch. I would start by checking to see if pump actually works then go to motor. Prob either motor head or switch.

Re: Many Thanks!
Thank you for bumping my question up to the Deville Forum, I hope to get more input to the '98 W/s washer DOA I am experiencing. I bought my gorgeous car from a certified GM mechanic but so far..? the replacment of the switch seems complicated though it could be the culprit. Input Please?

To replace the stalk itself is rather easy IIRC, push and twist dealio.
