Default Odyssey Windshield Fluid Problem

I know this type of question has been asked a few times, but I have not seen any responses that fix my problem.

We have a 2006 Honda Odyssey. A few months ago the windshield fluid stopped coming out. The pump was sounding OK.

When I went to check it out this weekend I noticed that the fluid would work when the hood was open, but not when it was closed.

Of course the first thing I checked was whether the tube was getting squashed by the hood when it closed. I made sure it wasn't. Also, I disconnected the hose that went up to the nozzles and pointed it straight down through the engine compartment. The same problem occurred, and there was certainly no chance that the tube was getting squashed by the hood.

So there are two possibilities (I think):

- There is a switch of some sort that prevent the fluid from coming out when the hood is closed. But remember, the pump continues to run. Maybe it has something to do with the rear wipers. Are there two pumps or only one? If there is one then there has to be a valve that controls the flow. Maybe this valve is malfunctioning.

- The tube is getting kinked/squashed in some other place that is not obvious.

Any help would be appreciated. This is a very strange problem. I'm thinking of calling CarTalk!
