Picked up a new project, a 91 vert with a t3 swap, and the washer fluid is not working. The wiper works when I hold the button however the pump will not activate. I checked the voltage at the connector to the pump and it showed 0.05 volts, I also tried with a different ground and got the same.

The previous owner told me they swapped the entire front engine harness, as they were unaware of how to wire the igniter in. It appears that the pump was cut out and spliced back in. It is all soldered and heat shrinked properly, however it looks like there are 3 wires that branch off from the harness. 2 are connected to the pump, the third has been cut and is just hanging. I believe the extra wire is black with a brown stripe. I'm thinking it may be a ground. But I am not sure. Hopefully I can get some clarification on which wire is which and what else I should check to trouble shoot.

there are two pumps on a t3 car, one front and one rear. they might have hooked up the wrong power wire.
check the 3rd wire for power when the pump switch is activated.

my 1990 fsm shows blue/yellow front pump, black/green rear pump.

1990 electrical fsm shows blue/black front pump, black/green rear pump

1989 t3 fsm shows black/green front pump, blue/yellow rear pump

solid black being ground.

there have been typos in the books. why it shows them reversed from n/a to t3, I have no idea. :huh:
check body grounds on inner fenders, both sides near front.
good luck! :wink:
