I am planning to retrofit the headlight washers sometime soon. From what I know, you need to have the headlights on and then do the windscreen wash. See if the nozzles pop out and spray the headlights. Then every 5th windshield wash, the headlights should spray.

^ I thought it was every third wash (likely to be wrong here) and don't think that your lights need to be on for them to be washed (could be wrong here too).

What I can say with certainty is that they don't get washed every time you do the windscreen wash! I'll see a bit of a spray mist come up from the front of my car every few windscreen washes, but I always lose count of how many between headlight squirts.

Oh yeah, and my washer pump failed about a year ago. Got it replaced with an OEM while it was at the mechanic for like $80.

Or you could just run a 12v line to it & test it that way...
