i had the same problem a while ago...i found the hose that connects to the back window came out of place...when u look in the engine bay...on the passenger side...behind the air filter on that side....there should be a splitter from the tank to the front hood spray and one that goes to the rear...check that maybe it came out like mine did....ill try to get a pic tomorrow...

Julia: If you found the end of the hose that feeds the rear window, try to find the splitter next. Maybe try to follow the hose back from the nozzles that spray the windshield to the splitter - or follow the hose that comes out the bottom of the washer tank to the splitter.

The washer line has either pulled off the spray nozzle at the top of the rear hatch or the line has spilt. My bet is that it has been pulled off. Time to "dis-assemble" the rear hatch so you can check out that line !!

I had the same problem a few years back after recently purchasing the truck. Mine only opened up under the hood at the splitter. Never had this problem with vehicles with a seperate rear reservoir.

chances are it's just broken at the nozzle on the hatch. remove the 3rd brake light and it will be obvious from there. most likely should be a free 2 minute fix too.
