    Anyone else have this issue or have it replaced already?

    Not yet, just trying to figure out how to re-aim the nozzles... they tend to shoot over the windshield which doesn't do me any good and usually pisses off the person behind me.

    I had that same issue this week. At first I thought that it was an empty washer fluid reservoir, but after refilling the tank, I realized that wasn't the issue. I took it into the service center and was hoping that it wouldn't be too expensive since my extended warranty has expired (my car has 120,000+ miles).

    It turns out that it was only a blown fuse.

    I'm not sure which fuse it was, but the service center replaced it for free.

    I have the extended warranty but don't want to pay the deposit for something so small.
    Might look at the fuses to see if that's the problem before I drive the distance to the SC

    This implies you've had it for a while.

    But, for others who may be new Tesla owners and are reading this thread, the button on the end of the stalk has to be firmly pushed all of the way in. A simple push causes a single swipe of the wipers. You have to push down further and firmly to activate the washers.

    Yep, I've been around these parts before. Coming up on 80k miles.

    When I first got my car I thought my washer pump was broken. Turns out that little button on the end is a 2 position button. I wasnt pushing it down far enough to spray the windshield. Had a friend go through the manual on the screen one night driving home from work and he found the answer. Man did I feel dumb.

    I've got one. Will look at the fuses this weekend. It isn't clear from the manual which feeds the washer pump (or wipers).

    Did anyone figure out the fuse for the washer pump? Mine just stopped working and I'd like to check that first. (Out of warranty.)

    Just in case anyone doesn't know, you can log in to your My Tesla account and find, among other things, the Owners Manual for the car which includes a fuse layout. It is also available from the 17" screen in the car.

    My manual does not include that. Perhaps you can post yours. ;)

    Thanks very much! Unfortunately, it looks like the washer pump doesn't have it's own fuse. I spoke to a Tesla tech yesterday who said the same. Nothing can ever be easy, but I guess it was worth a try. ;)

    Also, if you can, would you mind uploading the entire PDF in case there are other items that are not included in mine? I wonder if the difference is model "year" (mine is 2014) or country. Perhaps Canada requires that Tesla provide that information?
