SOURCE: keep blowing fuse for rear taillights and dashboard lights

Sounds like loose wires. Had a similar problem with my 03 Durango. Kept blowing fuses when I put them in. Came to find out my trailer wiring harness had fried and was shorting out.

The actual assembly arm that you turn on your windshield wiper (that says all of the controls on it) was bad and was causing the fuses to blow and burning up the motor. It was replaced and it works now as well as the a/c and heat which was not working before this fix.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: # 15 fuse keeps blowing, no windows, no wipers...

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.

The fuse for my wipers keep blowing. Tested the windshield wiper motor and still blows. Frustrated and don't know what to do next.


Try disconnecting the wiper motor, then either put in a fuse to see if it blows, or use a tester to see if there is a short on the wiper motor side of the wiring. Isolate the problem, and you will find it.

I replacsed th wiper transmission and now the wiper fuse keeps blowing I did not work on any thing but that


Does the fuse blow when the wipers are off or when you turn the wipers on? A fuse blowing means either a short circuit or an overload. Lets say that your wiper transmission is new and working properly, then an overload is probably blowing the fuse which is caused by the circuit pulling to much current because something is not aligned correctly and moving freely when the wiper motor is turned on. Before you connect the arms to the transmission, move the arm assembly manually with your hand to make sure the wipers go across and back on the windshield. This will verify that the arm assembly is moving freely and not jamming. Then turn the wiper transmission without connecting the wiper arms and see if the transmission is working properly and not blowing the fuse. This will verify that your wiper transmission is not defective. Check the wiring going to the wiper transmission for any bare spots or nicks on the wire insulation. If you have a bare spot or nick that is touching metal, the fuse will blow (this is called a short circuit). If you find a bare spot or nick on the wire use electrician tape to insulate the bare spot or nick. Usually three wraps of electrician tape around the bare spotor nick will do the job. Oh, make sure to replace the fuse with the correct amp fuse. Your car dealer auto parts can provide the information (over the phone) on the correct amp size. You can purchase the fuse at any auto parts. FYI: Too small an amp on the fuse will blow when the wiper is turned on. Too large of a fuse will cause the wiring to burn if your wipers should stop shifting and jam. Good Luck. Hope this helps.

Fuse blown WINDSHIELD WIPER


its shorted some where from the fuse to the motor
for sure. the fuse saved the fire.
disconnect the wiper motor and fuse.
and use an ohmmeter to find this short.
0 ohms is short. infinity is good, per above setup./
if not obvious the cause, the wire can be bypassed or unwrapped (hard)

Windshield wiper fuse keeps blowing


Since you Disconnect the motor also renewed the switch and is still blowing the fuse ,it is obvious that you have either broken wire between the switch and the motor. Try to test the failure by means of a tester circuit. Good Luck.
