Default Washer Pump Kaput

I was happily driving in the rain one day, got splashed with mud, and yikes, no washer fluid.
There'* plenty of fluid. I couldn't seem to find a separate fuse for just the pump (this is with the owners manual, no service manual as of yet) It seems to go with the main wiper fuse.
So, I replaced the pump. No happiness yet. I looked for voltage at the pump connector and nothing either off or on.
I pretty much need to get a service manual, but in the meantime maybe somebody has seen this and can help me out.

The fuse is the same as the wipers, so if their working the pump should too. I suspect the switch? When you press the 'wash' buttom the wipers come on (this switch turns both the wipers and washer pump on)?
The wire going from the switch to the pump is red in color, #228 connector A terminal #4.

Thanks for the quick reply.
The wipers do come on, but the pump doesn't. I'll take a peek at the wire you mentioned.
What a day. Now my outside temp gauge on the HVAC doesn't work. Any ideas on that.
Service manual, here I come.

Duh. Where about'* is conn A?

The temp sending unit is located right up front of the grill, look below the hood latch.

A service manual is a good thing to have

Left lower front corner of the passenger compartment on the bulk head, not easy to get at. There is also a connector located under the steering hush panel.

I've got the switch yanked out. on the connector for the switch where should i be looking for a state change on that connector?
I did find the other connectors.
I don't see paying 75$ for that switch.Looks like i may have some creative switching going on for a while until i get a new one ordered.
Thanks again.

YOur switching the hot wire for the pump, it should be a red wire, check this wire to ground while depressing the switch (with key switch turned to on).
