What fuse do i replace to make my windshield wipers work Chrysler 300


Highly doubt the fuse being the problem . If the fuse is blown ,that circuit has a problem , short to ground , wiper motor drawing to much amprage . Fuse's do not blow for no reason . Fuse # 18 -30 amp . under hood fuse box . There is also a relay , wiper on/off relay in same under hood fuse box . Also wiper hi/low relay ! There is also alot of electronics involved . integrated power module , front control module , plus C.A.N bus network . How to Diagnose Controller Area Network CAN . Could be wiper / washer switch , wiper motor , communication problem , module problems , Relay problem . Google chrysler intergrated power module . they have had a lot of problems with that thing .

How is 2001 Mustang GT parasitic draw on battery related somehow to FU 27 and FU39? Battery drains overnight but I cannot narrow down a faulty component.


Allfordmustangs.com has an article if you Web search your car with fuse 27 and 32 as part of the search. It blames the GEM as part of the problem(wiper) and also points out that the radio has several power feeds. Fuse 27 is hot all the time, but fuse 32 is only hot in ACC or Run. So as long as you can test fuse 32 to be hot in only Acc or Run, it should not drain the battery in Off position. You might want to test the ignition switch to verify it is really turned off.

The all mustangs article had different symptoms, as you did not indicate whether the fuses popped.

The wiper motor is suppose to derail and turn off. If you can unplug the wiper motor overnight and the battery stays up, you would know that it is either the wiper motor or wiper control. The radio is on the other fuse circuit. But whether the radio can drain a battery in a short time, you need to measure draw, but if the fuse pops, the battery should stay up. Again, disconnecting a circuit like a radio, and then having the battery stay up, would point to the radio circuit being at fault.

Wipers blowing fuse


Could be that the wiper motor is drawing too many amps thru the circuit.
You may need to take the motor off the car and see if it still runs slow without the wiper arms being attached.

Electric draw 6 plus amps


You have to identify which circut is the draw on. with a volt ohm meter set to mA setting you measure the the draw. remove the positive battery terminal and put the meter in series. if you have more than a 26mA draw you statr pulling fuses under thehood to identify the circuit. once the problem circuit is found find what component on the circuit is causing the draw. Good luck

The battery goes dead in a day or two. Have checked resistance 0.75 ohm with all fuses removed same with hot wire removed on alternator did not remove main fuse in engine compartment has a new battery...


Remove either of the battery cables from the battery and put an ammeter between the cable end and post. start pulling fuses till the draw disappears or gets substantially lower. which ever fuse you pulled serves the circuit that has the problem. I'm certain you had the battery load tested ???

If i leave the battery connected overnightit


NO the alarm does not draw that much current for it to drain the battery. Look for a light bulb like the one under the hood or the glove box. The other thing to is if you have a rear wiper for the window, it's been know for the wiper arm not to return full back to it's neutral position due to corrosion at the shaft and the motor will draw current trying to pull the wiper arm back to the neutral position. Try pulling the fuse to the rear wiper motor from the fuse box and see if the battery stops draining. Good luck and hope this helps friend.

2001 GMC Yukon Denali XL -intermittent dead battery


The wiper should not move regardless of battery change as the wiper switch should have isolated it.It seems to be the only ,as you say,strange thing and would be inclined to believe that that is the probable cause of your fault.Do like your testing method and hope you track the fault down.Good luck and happy new year.
