SOURCE: 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.

My # 30 fuse keeps blowing... 99 Mercury Cougar


If it is a 7.5 amp fuse, it powers the charge warning light in the cluster and applies voltage to the alternator to make it charge.
You will need someone to trace that circuit and look for a short to ground. It may be in the cluster or in the harness.
Something else besides the fuse is making the car not start.

I would say there is a short somewhere. You can get a resetable fuse.

Escort 55 1.8d van fuse 25 keeps blowing and cant start my van.circuit says wiper and washers and it wont let me install new fuse without blowing.i have work on monday !Help!


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.

Yes my fuse for my wipers keeps blowing and my wipers turn on when i plug fuse in even know the wipers are turned off.


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

2002 ford zx2 injection fuse keeps blowing


Hi, if you're talking about the 30 Amp fuse in the engine compartment, there is a lot of things that could cause this. If it's the smaller 10 amp fuse inside the car, there is less to check. The first thing I would do is to pull the connectors off all the injectors and check impedances with an ohmmeter. If any has a much lower impedance than the rest, disconnect it and see if the engine will run without blowing the fuse. You can use the same approach with most of the other components on that fuse circuit, except you may not be able to start the car in many cases. If the fuse blows when the engine is not running, that would make it easier--does it?

Have you checked the rest of the fuses? Both under the hood and under the dash. It sounds like you may have also blown the wiper switch. The 'gauge' fuse is suspect, make sure you check it as well. FYI, the oil filter in these cars are hand tighten only.

Windshield wipers won't work. Ford 2002 ZX2


The actual assembly arm that you turn on your windshield wiper (that says all of the controls on it) was bad and was causing the fuses to blow and burning up the motor. It was replaced and it works now as well as the a/c and heat which was not working before this fix.
