SOURCE: 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.

For further assistance contact me at FixYa!

SOURCE: How do you get the wiper arms off of a 1998 dodge

Wiper arms are generally held on one of two different ways. Either with a nut under a little cap that flips up above the pivot shaft, or a lock tab at the base of the wiper arm that pivots out and away a little from the pivot shaft. With either one, you will have to flip the wiper arms away from the windshield because they will not pull off the pivot shaft until the wiper blade spring tension is no longer acting against the windshield. Here's a pic of the lock tab.d76e2b6.jpg

SOURCE: Windshield wipers quit working

Sounds like your windshield wiper motor has gone bad. I would suggest buying a book for your car, testing the wiper motor and replacing as necessary. Good luck!

My 99 Ram 1500 keeps blowing the wiper fuse... I think it's a bad ground connection, but need a shematic to find it.


Fuses dont blow for bad connections, the blow because of a SHORT. Disconnect the wiper motor and then turn the switch on. if all is ok, then connect the wiper motor, if the fuse blows, the wiper motor MAY be bad

Fuse blows for wiper as soon as i turn on the wiper switch


If you can remove connector to wipers, do it, then turn them on and see what happens. If fuse blows, it's most likely a short in wiring harness, if it doesn't, then most likely the motor. Does it attempt to move at all, before it blows? Look for bad or bare wire in harness as well.
