    i have an 82 k5 and has long has i've had it, the windshield washer fluid has never sprayed out, i guess its the motor, but which way would you push the switch to make it spray if it did work, on mine u can either push it to the left and the wipers will move once and u can push it in and it will move once, which direction controls the fluid???

    When you push the button, hold it in and see if you can hear the pump going. The switch has a detent that when you push the button, it stays in the first, or low, position.

    Do you have the switch on the dash or on the column?

    That style uses the pump that is mounted to the wiper motor. Mine will only work if I prime it. You should be able to get a universal washer pump or a rebuild kit at Autozone if you want to bypass it.

    When you push the switch in it is supposed to engage the pump.
