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.

The fuse for my wipers keep blowing. Tested the windshield wiper motor and still blows. Frustrated and don't know what to do next.


Try disconnecting the wiper motor, then either put in a fuse to see if it blows, or use a tester to see if there is a short on the wiper motor side of the wiring. Isolate the problem, and you will find it.

Did you check the fuse? (most likely culprit) Sometimes during heavy snow the motor gets overloaded gets hot and blows the fuse.

My windshield wipers stopped working after a big snow storm. (1997 Jeep Cherokee)


You should check your fuses first. What may of happened is that the wiper motor could be frozen if the wiper arms are frozen in ice. Another thing that may of happened is that the wipers were used to clear the windshield instead of clearing it manually. When that is done if there is too much snow or it is a heavy snow the wiper motor will burn up or go bad due to the fact that it does not have enough power to do such things.

Keep blowing fuses for the wipers, have replaced


Your wiper motor is about to go out, if it hasen already, wiper motor pulling to many amps will cause the fuse to blow.
