Prius windshield washer

My daughter’s windshield washer quit mid-trip today. The tank is full and the outside temperature is about 15F. It worked once then no more. She can’t find any hoses disconnected.

Any ideas? Anyone else with a similar Toyota problem?


Not to stereotype you Prius drivers, but I’m guessing you’re using the environmentaly-friendly washer fluid. At 15 degrees, it could very well be frozen-- you may have to switch over to the skull-and-crossbones stuff for the winter. Can you hear the washer motor trying to run?
