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.

Have a 05 dodge 1500 the 4x4 switch an overhead console leds quit working an keeps blowing the fuse as soon as i put it in


Odd that your vehicle runs both systems on the same circuit and with only a 10 amp fuse. I'd try a 20 amp fuse to see if that works. Worth a shot, it shouldn't harm anything.

As soon as you put a fuse in wiper circuit it blows is there a module that runs these to or is it just switch and motor


Fuses are intended to protect the wiring in a circuit. If it blows there is an overload or a short circuit. It could be a faulty wiper motor, a faulty switch or a worn through wire that is grounded. try disconnecting the motor first to see if the fuse still blows. Next inspect the wiring harness as I feel a switch is an unlikely cause. Check around the fuse box as well as sometimes fuses over heat and terminals touch.

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

Dodge Ram AC not blowing cold


By pass both pressure switches one at a time with small wire or a paper clip. If comperssor kicks on replace the swich that you bypassed.
if not it could be the fan clutch ot the compressor. Compressor runs about $400.00

Windshield wiper fuse blows everytime I turn the ignition on


Try removing the harness connector to the motor, and see if it still blows the fuse, then you've isolated the problem.

I have a 1995 dodge ram i let my truck sit over the weekend it had snowed, and when i went to go turn on the wiper blades nothing happend. I changed out the fuse and tried another one i blew it as soon as...


Hi my name is Allen!
Check the related wiring for frayed areas that may be making contact with the metal area of the vehicle. If there are no problems found with the wiring then the wiper motor is the most probable cause for fuses to blow. If you need further asistance you may contact me through FixYa!

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!
