this really should have been put in the 2nd gen Sploder area...

but, it's probably the malfunc.... errrrr, multi-function switch.

the washer part of mine is finnicky... has to be pushed just right to get it to spray washer fluid.

Swap your front washer relay for the rear relay. They are in the junction box
in the engine compartment.

It may still be the switch, but on mine the relay was the problem. Its an easy check before you go buying a new switch.
