Hi my name is Allen!

We may have to work together for a few days to correct this problem, but we should be able to work together and solve it.

Here is what I need you to do first, check all the wiring going to the wiper motor, from the connector at the motor to as far back as you can follow it. What you are looking for is damaged wire that could be touching any metal parts on the car. If all the wiring appears to be good, then get back to me here at FixYa!

I am honored to help, and will work with you until this problem is solved.

    I don't know of anything thats called a pulse board.



    If the wiring checked OK then the only other thing that can blow the fuse is the Motor.



    If your friend is talking about the Intermittant wiper module, I have never seen one blow a fuse. But there is a first time for everything. If it cheap enough give it a shot. But I think you will eventually have to replace the motor.



    Waiting for reply!

My wiper fuse keeps burning out


If your wiper fuse keeps burning out, your wiper motor might be failing which causes too much amperes required to turn the motor which in turn trips the maximum rated amperes of the fuse.

Follow the wiring of that fuse to your wiper motor to make sure the wiring is not nicked and grounding to the metal. Once you confirm that there is no shorted wire, disconnect the wiper motors wiring connector. Fuse a new fuse and if the fuse does not blow anymore then you isolated the problem which is the wiper motor causing the fuse to blow. Fix or replace the wiper motor.

When diagnosing blown fuses, I usually temporarily replace any fuse in a vehicle with a circuit breaker type fuse. If there is still a short somewhere in the wiring or the component itself in line with the fuse, the circuit breaker fuse will just trip and I just reset it again after I fix the problem. An advantage of keeping to replace a blown fuse while diagnosing.

The Wiper fuse keeps blowing? Any Ideas?


Does the fuse blow as soon as you turn on the switch? Or do the wipers operate for a bit then the fuse blows? Will the wipers work in intermittent mode? Can you move the wipers by hand? Unless other wiring work has been done (eg radio replaced) I suspect the wiper motor is toast.

Wiper fuse keeps blowing intermittently.


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.

2001 sonata wiper fuse keeps blowing


If the fuse blows as soon as you put it in and the wipers are off then you have a short between the fuse block and the wiper switch.

If the fuse blows only when you turn the wipers on then more than likely the wiper motor has shorted and burned out. This one is very likely if the snow storm was heavy and you was driving in it. Cause- Moving large amounts of snow and ice off the window puts a heavy load on the wiper motors.

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.
