Since I had to remove the washer bottle ( you do not have to remove the front fascia as SM states) to get to the fittings on the ABS manifold, I thought I would test the motor to see if that was the problem with no wash fluid to rear window. The motor works fine. checked the relay and fuse and both work, just to be sure I swapped the horn with the wash relay and the horn worked so relay is OK. Switch in overhead console works when pressing to activate wiper blade (both buttons, however the middle button does not activate the motor for fluid. Anyone run into this problem?
Thanks

Turned out to be a defective pump,broken,hard to imagine this body cracking on its own and the connection plastic broken and the nipple holing the motor in place broken off. Maybe this truck was in a fender bender.
Found this on Ebay

Got the unit from Ebay today, perfect match and works and fits OEM, tried it 10x and no faults. The rear is not used that much anyway, but the savings from a OEM part is anywhere from 40-100 dollars, its available for front also. The rear is not really needed but I just like everything working on my truck. Since i have the T-REX grill its easy access to the rear washer, no need to remove wheel and inner fender liner
