Sounds like the circuit is being overloaded , have you had any rescent add ons like an alarm or remote start maybe even a new stereo? If no to any add ons you may want to move the wipers off the windscreen and run them for the ten minutes see if the fus still blows. If it does you may want to look into the mechancal arms of the wipers these contain ball and neoprene bearings these can be simply visually inspected . And made sure everythig is tight and appears in order.

SOURCE: blows fuses

Generally speaking, a fuse 'blows' because too much current is drawn through that circuit. In this case I suspect a 'short-to-ground' or a bad voltage regulator (inside the alternator in a GMC). First, I would check the alternator's output voltage. Easiest just to look at your guage. Up to 14 1/2 volts is normal on a GM (with truck running), if it's higher - you need a new alternator. If it's under 14 1/2 volts, you
MUST find the short. Unless you have the specialized tools, (short-circuit finder, voltmeter, wiring
diagrams, etc.) this should be left to a competent automotive electrical shop. It could be as simple as a wire's insulation worn off or a short 'inside' the ECM (you truck's engine control computer). No matter what, one trip to a competent mechanic will probably be cheaper than continually replacing the computer and/or towing bills. Good luck!

SOURCE: washer fuse blowing

OK guys. How cold is it where you are, and do you have
1. headlight washers as well
2. The right mix of screenwash/ water for your system

If not, check that you washer bottle has not frozen, blocking the pump and causing a system overload.
Also, check that the headlight washers (if they pop up from the bumper) are not frozen to the bumper body (it doesn't take much - try warming them with a hairdryer).

I had a new wiper motor for my Vauxhall Astra 1998 the fuse was blowing at times before it was fitted could it be the relay


More than likley the old wiper motor was overheating or sticking causing the fuse to blow. If it hasnt happened with the new motor
I wouldnt bother with the relay.

Coolant is the carrier heat.

My wiper fuse on my transit keeps blowing when on intermediate


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.

Unplug the wiper motor and replace the fuse. If it works the wiper motor is shorted out. It may also be the wiring rubbed thrue somewhere causing a short.

My Santa fe has suddenly started blowing the fuse in the windscreen wipers. My local garage has had it in 3 times and replaced the fuse each time. On collecting my vehicle the wipers have worked initially...


Someone, like a competent electrician, should diagnose this problem. Either the problem is in the wiring, OR, the wiper motor is INTERMITTENTLY shorting out blowing the fuse. Have the vehicle properly diagnosed by a qualified Hyundai Service Technician. Best advice.

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.

Windscreen Wipers Not Working.


Hi
Expect you have blown the fuse !

Get a torch.
Look under the dash foot well panel, and lift off the fuse box cover, on the back of the cover look for wiper pic, this will show you the fuse location.
Pull out the fuse, with the little red tong tool, that should be in the fuse box, or just your fingers.
You should see the little bridge wire melted across the top of the fuse ?
You should have a spare fuse in the fuse box.
Put it in, and switch on the wipers !

Good Luck !

Please give me a FixYa rating, I wan´t to be a Guru !

John.
