Question about Cars & Trucks
My 02 GC keeps blowing the 15amp fuse as soon as i put it in. The rear wiper is not working either. Not a wiring guy. Is there any common fix i could do myself?

I'd look at the door switches (for dome light) first, then check that light itself has not shorted against roof. Does the fuse blow when the bulb has been removed? Some of this stuff has been routed through "modules", depending upon options and mfg date.( Delay controls and others.) I have seen no less than three "diagrams"... none of which are specific enough to aid in repair. If you physically can't trace problem, you will need the exact wiring diagram specific to manufacture date of your vehicle (can be 6mos different than just year.)

This means you have a short. I am assuming you are talking about the fog light fuse. Does this fuse blow whether the fog lights are off? or just when turned on?
If the fuse blows when the switch is off the switch is bad too. If the fuses only blows when the switch is turned on you have a short in the wiring or bulb.
I don't know if you have test equipment so first I would say to remove both driving bulbs from their sockets and see if there is corrosion. Fix that problem if there is corrosion.
Then install a fuse without the bulbs and see if the fuse blows. If you have a test light you can bridge the fuse panel without putting a fuse in. If there is a connection you have a hot wire grounding. If there is no problem install one light, fuse or bridge the fuse holder and see if 1 light works. Try each side. This way you can isolate the problem. Then visibly inspect wiring.

SOURCE: blowing fuses jeep wont start
use a circuit breaker or paper clip with pliers so you do not burn yourself use paper clip as fuse unplug engine controll sensors 1 at a time and check if problem is gone after each one is unplugged an engine controll sensor is most likely shorting out if you have a map sensor try that first then move on to other components tps,fuel pump ect. till you find wich is fauly causeing short this should help you just be carefull with paperclip am saying to do this instead of blowing expensive fuses

use a voltage meter to check the circuits for cotinuity if they are grounded out you may end up with even worse problems down the line. volt meter should read no load.
