Default Intercooler mister - rear washer switch

I noticed my sedan has the wiring connector to run 1 more water pump and a spot to put it on the resevior and would like to use it if possible, so...

1 - I want to see if I can use the rear windsheild washer wiring harness to run the pump for a intercooler water mister.

2 - Where is the rear window washer switch go in the WRX wagon? (whick dash switch knockout does it use?)


3 - If the wiring is there, can it just be hooked up and work or are there missing relays/fuses that have to be put in before this will work?

You can do what I did!
Go down to budget rent a car and rent a impreza wagon.
Remove and exchange water reservoir and winshield wiper stalk.
This will be a simple plug and play.
Connect everything back up and return the car.
You will end up with a very stock application and have a few extra switches for other uses.
Then you will have to look for washer nozzles only.
best of luck.

We don't use a dash switch, it is on the same handle as the front windshield washers.

Since I have done this (to a degree), I can say it should be possible.

What I have done....

Purchased a rear washer pump (I have a sedan). Popped a hole in the tank for the second pump. (I actually moved the windshield pump to the higher spot so my intercooler would have more water to work from). Hook up second pump wire connector (it is there even if you have the sedan). Put tank back in car.

Find the wire to tie into in the steering column, hook up a switch that grounds that wire....... there you have it.

One main item, do not try to just switch accross the two wires in the steering column, for some reason it does not work. Grounding the one main pump wire does thou.

I used this for around 3 months, till I forgot to tell service department not to fill up the tank. They topped it off with cleaner, so I pulled the pump wire connector so I don't accidently spray windshield cleaner all over my intercooler.

Eventually I will hook up the autospeed auto mister system.

How did the parts cost? Do you have part numbers? I would like to do this as well, but with some kind've relay that would turn itself off like the window defroster.

Do you have a picture of your install? Do you know if it lowered your 1/4 mile times?
