I had some chunks of ice trapped under the windshield -- which were impeding the windshield wiper blades from working -- but I didn't realize the wipers were turned on. I shut the wipers off and cleared the ice, but now the wipers don't work. I can hear the motor whir -- but the wipers won't go up and down. Is it a blown fuse or a blown wiper motor? My pocket book hopes it's a blown fuse -- but I can't open the fuse box under the hood. Does anybody know how to open the fuse box?

Fuse box under the hood, in engine compartment . fuse #14 will have 25 on top . plastic box near battery . Also a 10a fuse in the Body control module for the wiper switch ! Plus there are two relays in the under hood fuse/relay box That are involved.
when you turn the wipers on do you hear any sound? If so, then you may have disconnected a ball joint in there behind the firewall - typically the top (black) panel (under the wipers/ at the back of the hood) comes off or you could find other access to inspect more thoroughly to be sure. If no sound, test the power to the wiper motor with a test light, if no power, check fuses, wiring, ground, etc., Best regards Ck
There's no need to remove the fuse to change wiper blades.
If there are electrical problems the fuse locations are driver's bottom left near steering wheel, and under the hood. Under the hood is the ipdm located on the passenger side near the alternator. More fuses can be found beside the battery.
If your wiper motor runs but wipers don't move, the linkage is disconnected.
Usually on the back of the cover for the fuse compartment, there is a discription of what each fuse is for,and what location.When you find the one for windshield wipers, it will probably abbreviated, hold cover up to fuse compartment, and compare it to the fuse. There is also a fuse compartment under the hood.If the fuse is good, then either a bad ground, bad motor, or switch.
There is a Fuse for the Wipers on the Box inside the Car. There actually could be one in the Relay Fuse Box under the Hood also. This box Shoud be on the Drivers Side up torwards the Firewall of the Car.
