Question about 1996 Saab 900
Wipers are blowing fuses, I have a spare saab for parts. what should I do? Thanks - Morgan
It may not be the wipers. If a manual, the reverse light switch is on the same circuit. These switches can fail and create a dead short to ground. To test, put in a new fuse with the car off and in neutral. Start the car and turn on the wipers. If they work, shift into reverse and see if the wipers stop. If they do, you need to replace the switch which is very accessibly located on the top of the transmission bell housing beneath the main fuse box. The fuse box can be moved aside by removing the nut between it and the fender, and prying the clip up that is on the drip rail lip beneath the weather stripping that runs under the back edge of the hood. Once you have moved the fuse box out of the way, you can see the little switch sitting on top of the tran bell housing. Unplug the connector and use a 13mm (if I remember correctly) open wrench to remove it and replace with a new one.
