    yes you can cut the wire and run it straight to the fuse box but your gauge or charge light will not work but it will charge

My wipers stopped working in my 93 escort.

Sounds like a relay has blown. The relay is located in the fuse box under the dash or in the engine compartment. Both the fuse boxes should be labeled so you can locate it. If not, the owners manual should have a diagram for the fuse box under the dash. If its not the relay. the wiper motor needs to be replaced

I was changing oil on my 99 escort zx2 and my wrench touched the back of the alternator and blew the main 100 amp fuse. I replaced it and now the temp guage, and fuel guage do not work and the wipers will...

Have you checked the rest of the fuses? Both under the hood and under the dash. It sounds like you may have also blown the wiper switch. The 'gauge' fuse is suspect, make sure you check it as well. FYI, the oil filter in these cars are hand tighten only.

My alternator fuse blew when i replaced it my gas and my hot cold

you may have blew the whole cluster but not likely,
check the fuses to all accessories and guages. check your field wire on the altenator and make
sure it is hooked up correctly on the altenator.
