e46 washer pump

So ever since I acquired this car a few months back, the washer pump hasn't worked. Finally got a chance to do some diagnosing the other day and here's what I found- all related glovebox fuses good. Nothing else in car seems to be doa. When I disconnected the pump and hooked up a test light in it's place, the test light doesn't light either. Yes the test light was verified to be working. So I guess my q's are- is there something I'm missing like maybe an inline fuse or module somewhere else in the car? Or do I need to start tracing the circuit all the way back?

What's the wiring diagram show? It's in the Bentley manual, and there's a web site online that also shows the wiring diagram (don't have the link handy).

Could be the switch in the wiper stalk on the steering column.

Blech I didn't even think of the switch being shot. I don't happen to have a copy of the Bentley manual just yet
