Question about Ford Escort
Today i drove my car in to my drive and at the time was using my wipers because it was raining and all of a sudden the van stop and left wipers across the center of wind screen. My vehicle would not restart I noticed fuse 25 had blown which was a 20 amp and also says wiper and washer circuit.. For some reason it wont turn the engine over either tried new fuse and keeps blowing all the time. 3 weeks ago the same thing happened and it let me renew the fuse please try and give me some idea of where to start looking.. steve
Unplug the wiper motor and replace the fuse. If it works the wiper motor is shorted out. It may also be the wiring rubbed thrue somewhere causing a short.

Unplug the connector at the rear wiper motor, turn the switch on and probe the wires with a test lamp, if you have power back there you more than likely have a bad motor. If there is no power start checking fuses they are all labeled easily on the back side of the fuseblock covers both on the dash and underhood. Good Luck!!!

Try changing the fuel filter first we always change them when servicing the fuel pump anyway,its easy and cheap,if that doesnt solve the problem you will have to perform an amperage draw test on the fuel pump to insure your not replacing a good pump. Check the fuel pump relay and inertia switch and wiring also.Although possible its unlikley the fuel pump would blow a fuse consistantly without displaying any driveability problems.There may also be another component running off the fuel pump fuse have your mechanic pull a wiring diagram to find out. Good hunting keep me informed

It looks like the wire circuit for the wiper motor is touching the car body when shaken so the only thing you can do is shake the wires and terminals yourself while engine is running then maybe you can pinpoint where the earthing is.
