Causes for wipers that no longer work on your Honda Accord

Very often, your equipment is blocked by accumulated dirt or limescale. This is the main reason that may prevent your equipment from working. To remedy this, try to unclog your sprinklers. These holes allow the solution to be propelled onto your Honda Accord’s windshield. It is very likely that they are blocked, by accumulation of limestone, or various types of dirt. To do this, you can start by trying to blow, yourself or with some efficient equipment, such as a bicycle pump or ideally the tire inflator at your gas station.

How to fix wipers that no longer work

If nothing can be done, try to get yourself a thin, durable thing, such as a paper clip, that will allow you to access the interior without losing a piece. We suggest that you also employ a mixture of vinegar and hot water to optimize your results.
Repeat the test, if it still doesn’t work, maybe it’s blocked at a deeper place, at the connection pipe. This is the link between the pump and the nozzle in your Honda Accord.
To reach it, you will have to open your cover:
You should identify the two hoses specific to each nozzle. Try to tidy them and obviously make sure they are properly connected. Use the same cleaning procedures explained above. When they are cleaned, you should manage to circulate water through them without any problems. Then plug them back in correctly, and repeat the test on your Honda Accord. If it still doesn’t work, you now know that it doesn’t come from the sprinklers or the pipes.
From there, you should consequently check the pump. It is the one who sets out the product launch.
You will find it near the cleaning fluid reservoir under your Honda Accord’s hood.
First test to ascertain if it works, when you turn on the washer, you are supposed to hear a noise when the pump is activated. In the absence of noise, this means that it does not work. It will then have to be replaced.
It is a very simple thing to do . First, do away with the two screws that allow it to be fixed on your Honda Accord.
Then, you must identify two power wires. They are mainly black and red. They should always be disconnected, but be aware, they must be reconnected in the right direction afterwards, or you would create a short circuit on your Honda Accord. A little tip to keep in mind: the red wire symbolizes the + terminal. For example, place a piece of red tape on it to be certain you can find it. Do the same with the black tape on the bollard – . Thanks to this, you should be able to reconnect the wire of the right color without any difficulty later on.
Once completed, you can dispose of the old pump and insert the new pump on your Honda Accord. Reconnect the cables properly using the tip, then just screw the two retaining screws back on.
Now run a test again.
Everything should be back to normal by now.
