330 Windscreen Wash/Wipe doesnt work.

Customer Question

I have a 2006 330i and the Windscreen Wash/Wipe doesn't work, there is no sound from the Washer Motor and the Wipers don't move either (normal wipe is fine). I don't think I heard any relay clicks either. I have checked all fuses behind the Glove Box. Someone said that it could still be the pump, but I cannot understand how the pump failing can also stop the wipers working when pulling the wash switch. Is there some kind of system that only triggers the wipers if wash fluid flow or pump current is present ?thanksRay

Can you please clarify what your question is? If wiper operation depends on the pump working? Is that correct?
