I was driving my 2007 escalade and noticed that my rear windshield does not spray fluid the wipers work both front and back and sprays in the front. I hope this is not a problem with the pump. Does anyone have any suggestions.

Thanks

Is it pouring on the ground anywhere? If so, there are usually a couple connections along the line to check. If not, then check the pump at the reservoir. May have a bad connection or may need to replace the motor.

Some times it takes a while to come thru, I know the 07' I just purchased must have took a minute of pushing the washer button before fluid came out, I was about to start checking it out when it started flowing, I could hear the pump working

I agree with hcvone, sometimes it does take it a while, try pushing the washer button for a little longer. If that does not work I would recommend taking it to your local dealer to have them diagnose and/or repair the issue for you. Let us know what you find out.

Apparently the fuse for the rear washer keeps blowing everytime I push the button so I will take it to the dealership and let you know what they find.

I had the same issue. The rear hose starts at the reservoir and then goes up along the hood...and eventually snakes down. Mine was disconnected along the drivers side hood...right in about the middle of the front quarter panel. There was not a lot of slack in the line...and must have pushed out when the line froze with this cold weather.

I'm not sure about the Escalade but I had a Yukon once that when the washer fluid level got to a low point it would continue to pump fluid the front wipers but would not the rear.
