I have an 05 traiblazer and the wipers will not turn off. I disconnected the battery and checked the fuses hoping this would reset but it did not. It only has 51k on the truck so i don't think it is a worn out switch

1. When replacing the battery, some sort of shortcircuit might have occurrred messing up the fuses.
Solution: Refer to your user's manual to identify where the wipers' fuse is located and try replacing it.
2. As far as I'm concerned, a way to "reset" the computer in the car is disconnecting the battery, so the computer may have been reset with wrong parameters.
Solution: Have you tried disconnecting the battery for a couple of minutes? and plug it back?.
3. If your model has automatic wipers, try switching from auto to manual mode and viceversa.
4. When the battery on my 206 was almost worn out, the lights kept turning on after killing the switch, followed by a quick beeping (which normally indicates the power in the battery is draining). At first, I thought it was the switch of the headlamps, but after replacing the battery with a new one, the problem got solved. Maybe the battery you just put in is faulty?
I'm going to say you blew a major fuse or fuseable link wire you have not found yet. The wipers need power from a battery source to stop, the headlights probably are on a battery circuit too. The turn signals would go thru the key switch but the hazard flashers would be also be direct battery. You may need a wiring diagram (book) to find all of the fuses and circuits.
The power distribution box in the engine compartment # 6 , 30 amp mini - fuse , front wiper motor , front wiper relay , front washer pump , FEM ( also # 7 , 25 amp mini - fuse , rear wiper etc. ) The owners manual shows to disconnect your battery cables before servicing anything in the PD BOX
your relay could be shorted which makes the fuse keep blowing
Turn wipers on (veh in "on" or "acc" position)
Disconnect the electrical connection at the windshield wiper motor (located in the engine compartment on the fire wall) and check for voltage. If you have voltage, there is a good possibility your windshield wiper motor is bad.
You may also: Disconnect the electrical connection at the windshield motor and run a heavy gauge wire directly from the positive side of the battery to the motor. If you get the windshield motor to come on. There may be only a wiring (short) problem between the relay and the motor.
1. Turn on your wipers and pop your hood.
2. If you hear you wiper motor, then you do not need to check your fuses.
3. If your wiper arms are moving freely, then your linkage from the wiper arms to the motor is disconnected and possibly broken.
4. If the problem is electrical, do the following:
1. Check the fuse, and check for power at the fuse.
2. Check the wiper motor for ground. For a complete circuit, you need power going in and ground coming out. Check electrical connections for corrosion or poor connections.
3. Get a wiring schematic and trace power to the wiper motor starting at the fuse box in the following order:
4. In the rarest of cases a wiper motor or wiper switch is at fault. I do not recommend replacing anything unless you have proof that the part is faulty. (ie. power going into the switch but nothing coming out.)
