Default Connector Near Washer Resevoir

I've looked back at a couple of the previous water spray posts and have found nobody asking what the loose connector is for by the washer reservoir. I can tell its for a washer fluid pump, cause its the same as the one next to it. Does anyone know what the other end of it is hooked up to?

I wouldn't doubt that by merely installing a switch, pump, and some plumming, that you could tie into the factory harness and get a clean install. Is it possible that that connector gets a signal at high boost? I guess the only way to check is to hook up a light and see if it comes on when your booting it.

Just a thought,
-Pete

You have high hopes for that connector, but it is simply for the rear window washer found on the wagons . I can tell you where and what color it runs on a 99 to 01 Impreza RS, but not on a WRX. It *should* end up near the ignition lock but I have no idea what color it will be at that end.

Nuts...

Thanks for the info, I was just about to get a scope hooked up and everything. So does the rear washer pump reside in the same resevoir? Is that what the other recess is for?

Either way, if I can track down the switch connector, its simply a matter of finding a good signal to run the auto spray from.

Thanks again,
-Pete

The wagon *should* have a different reservoir from the sedan, with two holes and grommets for two pumps. The stock washer pump will probably not be strong enough for an IC sprayer however, but I could be wrong. As for signal, you will want to have an on/off switch as well as either a throttle or boost activated switch (ideally, both). MRT in Australia can get you a whole kit.

A washer pump can handle some flow and some pressue, just not for long. I got a cheap $7 one from Walmart to make the radiator spary for my SHO. It would get very unhappy if run for more than 30 sec at a go. IF run for more than a minute it would take nearly an hour to cool off to normal temps again.

Yup, I found that wire at the ignition. (the blue) and I did exactly what you are talking about. I used it to power my IC sprayer pump, which is mounted in the extra pump notch in the washer resevoir. works great, and looks stock.
