Windshield Wiper Fluid Won't Eject

The winshield wiper fluid doesn't come out. The tank is full. When I push the steering column lever I hear no sound .... silence. I see no clog .... both sides don't work. Is there a fuse ? Is this a simple fix ?

Car is a 2005 Acura TL

Do the wipers move when you hit the washer switch, or do they stay parked as well?

Unplug the wires to the pump. test to see if you have power to the pump with a test lite, you may need someone to press the Washer button while you test this. If you have power to it(12 volts) then your pump is bad, if not youll have to start chasing wires and check the switch itself. Hope this helps.

Thanks .... my son has the car up at school. When he gets back in a couple of weeks I'll give it a try. I hope the problem is the pump.
