Default Washer fluid not spraying

Searched and found nothing other than people asking for opinions on various brands of washer fluid....

My issue is that neither the headlamp washers or windshield washer nozzles are spraying ANY water when I try to use them. They were both working fine not too long ago, so I don't think it's clogged nozzles. Yes, I've checked and there is plenty of washer fluid. I don't see leaks of any kind when I try to wash the windshield. The only thing that happens is the wipers activate over the dry windshield. I haven't removed the front bumper recently, so I don't think I could have screwed anything up in that area. I did remove the rear bumper for a diffuser install and I removed the rear view mirror in order to hardwire my radar detector. Not sure how either of those installs could have affected anything but figured I'd mention it. I'm thinking possibly a fuse??? Any other ideas?

The hose junction is just behind the drivers side fog light. How long has it been since you installed the LED fog lights? Although if that was disconnected you would probably see a leak. Maybe the plug for the pump was disrupted durning the headlight or fog install and has lost it's connection.
I always start with context clues like work that has been done in that area of the car with things like this. Washer pumps rarely fail on there own, especially in a car this young.
I would stand next to the fender and have someone hit the washer button to see if you here the pump run.
