I have a 1992 dodge spirit that the wipers quit working. The fuse was blown and every time I change fuse it blows when I turn on the ignition.


Try unplugging the wiper motor and see if it blows the fuse. If it doesn't, then your motor has an internal short and needs to be replaced.

I would start at the starter, it could have a short but it's only apparent when the engine gets it hot. you can try to pull the fuses to other things and see if the problems stop. this will at least give you an idea of where to look. also check fusible links and look for wire corrossion

Air bag light is on 96 grand caravan


i may be mistaken on if this applies to your model year but if the rear wiper does not work then check the fuse for rear wiper and replace if blown. make sure rear wiper switch is off and wiper is parked.if air bag light goes out after a few seconds then the rear wiper motor is bad causing fuse to blow. air bag module gets power for its fuse through wiper fuse.if wiper is not parked then fuse may blow when you turn yhe key on.you have two choices. replace wiper motor or remove tailgate door panel and unplug the motor

Starting problem in a '97 dodge ram diesel


Could be the solenoid on the starter. Next time it doesn't start, hit the starter with a hammer or other hard object, then try to start it. If it starts, replace the starter before it leaves you stranded

Fuse blows for wiper as soon as i turn on the wiper switch


If you can remove connector to wipers, do it, then turn them on and see what happens. If fuse blows, it's most likely a short in wiring harness, if it doesn't, then most likely the motor. Does it attempt to move at all, before it blows? Look for bad or bare wire in harness as well.

Windshield wiper fuse blows everytime I turn the ignition on


Try removing the harness connector to the motor, and see if it still blows the fuse, then you've isolated the problem.

Fuse blows on wiper when i start my 1999 dodge ram pickup


Hi my name is Allen!

When the fuse for the wipers keeps blowing, that means either the motor has a dead short within it and must be replaced, or the wiring going to the motor is damaged and shorting out on the vehicle body somewhere and must be repaired.

Here is how you check it; replace the blown fuse, unplug the connector from the wiper motor, then turn the key on if the fuse does not blow then you need to check the wiring to the motor if the wiring is not damaged anywhere replace the wiper motor.
