Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
To blow the fuse it has to be drawing a higher current. Are you using the correct AMP for the wipers? I would try lifting the wipers off the windscreen and see if the fuse still blow (less friction) if it still blows the problem is the motor could be on its way out or they mechanisms are "sticky" if they work fine then replace the blades and give the windscreen a good clean. You could (at some minimal risk) put a fuse in with +5 AMP higher than recommended.

possibly the cruise cancel switch on the brake master cylinder is shorted, disconnect the switch and replace the fuse and see if everything comes back to life. the switch may be on the end of the master cylinder, Ford has had BIG problems and RECALLS for this switch going bad.

Sounds like a dead short to me. You will need to find a wiring diagram for this one. Without it, I'd start by unpluging the motor and the light one at a time. Another good place to check is at the rear hatch, where the wiring harness enters the hatch, this is a common area for broken/shorted wires.Check that and let me know, I'll help how I can.

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.

it is probably the wiper motor,its building up to much resistance and blowing your fuse

Testimonial: "thank you thats kinda what i figured i just wanted someone elses opinion thank you =)"
Are you replacing it with the correct amp fuse? Buy a couple of the RIGHT fuses and try this.Your wiper motor may be bad, or the wiper mechanism is binding, causing the motor to over amp and blow the fuse. Try lubricating, if you get to it, the arm mechanism, and make sure it is not hitting anything while it is in motoion. Not familiar with this cars set up. Remove wiper blades, or stand them up and see if it still blows tyhe fuse
