Windshield washer doesn’t work

Windshield washer doesn’t work, or works intermittently, blows fuse

GM has issued a service bulletin to address a problem with windshield washers on 2006-07 Chevrolet Monte Carlos and 2006-08 Chevrolet Impalas. The service bulletin (TSB) 07-08-43-004C states that the factory installed a 10A fuse for the windshield washer pump. GM now says that the washer pump needs a 15-amp fuse. It warns NOT to replace the pump, but to replace the 10-amp fuse with a 15-amp fuse and to note that inside the fuse box. The wiring is able to handle the extra load.
