in most volvos the headlamp washers activate when you use the windshield squirters

check fuses in the under hood fuse box. could be the motors died. very common with the old style washers, not sure about the new popup ones

05's don't pop up they just spray. Check the hoses for kinks, blockage etc...

Also note that they don't function every time!

There is some sort of "timer" that only allows them to be used every (this is a guess) 5 or 10 minutes so you don't blow through your washer fluid reserve.
