Thanks for the quick reply. I saw this particular post and thread, but it didn't seem definitive- "give it a try"... Are you CERTAIN it is the fuse?

The pump may have failed if you have a testlight or voltmeter you can access the pump at the bottom of the washer bottle by

Turn the steering wheel to move the front wheels to the full left position.
Raise and support the vehicle.
Remove the plastic push-in fasteners that secure the forward end of the left front wheelhouse splash shield to the inner fender panel and the front fascia.
Pull the forward end of the left front wheelhouse splash shield away from the inner fender panel and front fascia far enough to access the washer pump/motor unit (2) on the outboard side of the washer reservoir (4) for service.
Disconnect the headlamp and dash wire harness connector (1) for the washer pump motor from the motor connector receptacle. NOTE: To aid in reinstallation, note the installed position of the washer hoses prior to disconnecting them from the washer pump.
Disconnect the front and rear washer hoses (3) from the barbed outlet nipples of the washer pump and allow the washer fluid to drain into a clean container for reuse.
Grasp the top of the washer pump/motor housing and pull it firmly outward far enough to disengage the snap post on the top of the motor from the receptacle in the reservoir.
Grasp the lower part of the washer pump/motor housing and, using a back and forth twisting action, pull the unit outward from the reservoir far enough to disengage the pump inlet nipple from the rubber grommet seal in the reservoir.
Remove the rubber grommet seal from the washer pump mounting hole in the reservoir and discard.

Disconnect the pump connector and install a testlight across the two pump motor terminals on the harness side. Operate the washer switch and see if it lights. If the testlight is lit replace the washer pump

I remember somehow having trouble with this before. There is a plastic screen in the pickup that can get clogged. Maybe check that?

The washer motor is controlled by the "Front Control Module" FCM
There are 4 fuses to the FCM. In the IPM "Integrated Power Module" which is the fuse box under the hood closest to the Battery. The FCM uses fuses 12, 13, 18 and 20 - all are 20 Amp Yellow.
That is one nasty circuit to trace, there were about 25 pages on troubleshooting the wipers and washer in the service manual. If you think the Owners manual is a POS try the service manual! - hope this helps.
You could just check all fuses which might help. I have had one fuse blow and it caused problems in another unrelated circuit due to back circuits. There are 3 fuse panels in the Commander - 2 under hood on the left side and one under the dash on the left also.

06 Commander Limited Hemi - QDII,
Past -89 Comanche, 98 Grand Cherokee (2WD), 2000 Cherokee, 05 Grand Cherokee Limited 4.7
Had to replace the brakes - they opened more gas stations in town
