You have a short in the transmission control circuit. there is a good chance that because of the accident the mainharness was damaged. your transmission is locted on the drivers side so that would explain why your blowing fuses while shifting. I would start by looking at gthe main harness, and i would take it to a shop and have a diagnostic run on the transmission. please rate this...thanks

Where is a Mitsubishi eclipse spyder 2003 wiper relay ?

The two relays for the front [main] wipers are part of the front ECU [engine computer] and are not serviceable separately. The front wipers are powered by a 10 amp [#22 in the relay box] battery hot fuse and a 20 amp [#18 in the junction box] & two 7.5 amp [#20 & #23 in the junction box] ignition hot fuses. The front ECU is located under the hood. It sits on top of the driver's inner fender well.

How to remove break light bulb in 2003 mitsibushi spyder

Check the brake light switch located on the brake pedal arm. Its above the pedal under the dash and has a connector with several wires attached to it. The switch is either bad, broken, or out of adjustment. If you have to step on the brake to shift out of park there is also a another switch located there as well.

Shift into D the N started flashing green .

Try moving the shift lever from D towards the next gear away from N (not all the way, just hold it a little bit over). If the N light goes out and the D light acts normal, then your shift linkage needs to be adjusted so the transmission goes into gear exactly when the shift lever is in a detent.
If that isn't the problem, it's time to get a readout of the engine error code to see where the problem is. You can get this done at most car parts stores, or they may let you use their engine code analyzer yourself if you give them a deposit on it. (The two hardest parts are getting down under the steering wheel to plug it in and deciphering the error code.)
