Windshield washer problem

Hey all. I have a 2000 Focus LX and no fluid is coming out. I put in new fluid and it is still not working. I'm hearing no sound from under the hood when I push the button. Do you think its the fuse or motor?

It may just be frozen. The fuse is easy to check, the motor difficult.

Check the fuse.

I looked in my manual and there is no fuse listed for the washer pump/motor. Anyone know what fuse number it would be?

Hay guys. It started working again when it was mild outside. I guess it must have froze or something. How can I prevent this?

Get De-Icer type windshield washer fluid and it will hold up better during the colder months of the year. They will clearly say on the packaging that they have de-icing properties so don't stress over not being able to tell the difference. I just finished filling up on De-Icer for the winter myself :) http://rainx.com/ go there, click on products and then go to windshield washer fluids and then de-icer. You need that kind of stuff in there or it will freeze up on you all winter.
