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.

1999 dodge ram truck 1500 4x4 worked fine park it and next morning tried to start truck but all bell and lights come on but 30 amp ignition run fuse keeps blowing and truck wont start ran fine when...


This 30 amp fuse, If it blows when cranking, it is usually the starter dragging, if it blows by just turning the key on it is usually the fuel pump drawing too many amps.
I hope this helps.

My 99 Ram 1500 keeps blowing the wiper fuse... I think it's a bad ground connection, but need a shematic to find it.


Fuses dont blow for bad connections, the blow because of a SHORT. Disconnect the wiper motor and then turn the switch on. if all is ok, then connect the wiper motor, if the fuse blows, the wiper motor MAY be bad

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.
