Hi, there is no danger of blowing a fuse .... the worst that can happen is the pump will run in reverse or (50--50) will work perfectly.
Just hake sure there is washer fluid or water in the reservoir ,,, the don't like being run dry. Good luck

SOURCE: windshield wipers do not work,

There is also a fuse module located on the passenger side of the center console under the dash. You can pull the plastic cover panel off by hand. This should be where the wiper motor fuse is located.

SOURCE: The windshield wiper fuse keeps

It does not matter the color of the fuse as long as it is a 25 amp fuse. I would suspect the wiper motor is defective.

Windshield wipers keeps blowing the fuse


Here's the good news your hoping for, it is very likely that it is not in the wiring, odds are equally likely that you burnt up the windings in the motor. Now whenever you turn them on, the windings are contacting and instantly popping the fuse. Without getting into an at length answer as to how these motors work, the simple answer is replace the motor, and I give it high odds this resolves your symptom.

Subaru legacy wagon wiper fluid hose disconnected


Look up at your hood... there will be one hose running to the left side of the windshield, and one running to the right side. The right (Driver's) side goes down to a "T" connector, which is right near your master brake cylinder, but up on the hood itself... it connects back there. I couldn't figure it out either... luckily I have 2 Outbacks... a 1998 and a 2001... both connect the same way.

Windshield wipers don't turn on unless washer fluid button is activated


According to the wiring diagram, it looks like the switch sends a signal to the body computer and it turns on the wiper-on relay. That relay is powered by a 30amp fuse. If you are sure the switch is working, it looks like the problem may be in the computer. I would get a second opinion before replacing anything else.

1996 buick windshield washer will not turn on. Plenty of fluid, hoses ok, port (squirter) to windshield is not plugged. Pump is not trying to push any liquid. No blown fuses.Wipers work fine. Everything...


Have someone press or hold the washer switch and listen underhood for a small pump sound {Hum}. If you don't hear a small hum you probably need a new washer fluid pump, pretty common for this old of a car. Imagine for the last 15 years sitting in wet fluid,sometimes drying out, getting refilled, turned on and off, on and off that little pump had it's day and retired! Most auto parts stores sell inexpensive replacements. Easily come out and go back in in reverse order. Pumps are usually mounted underside of fluid tank,just follow any visible washer hose.

There is only one container for washer fluid, and for front and rear whiper fluid goes from ths same container witch is under the hood.
If your front washer is working and rear doesnt than it's problem with fluid pump or line from the containet to the rear wiper is damaged or disconected.

2006 hhr passenger side windshield wiper not moving but drivers side is fine??


First remove the complete passenger side wiper check and make sure splines on wiper are not stripped. If this is not the problem It could be a linkage bar from the wiper motor to the wiper off or disconected. Since both wipers share the same motor if one works the other should. Check this by removing both wipers and then "Cawl" (little black piece between the hood and windshield underneath the wipers) Underneath the cawl you should be able to see the windshield wiper motor, and linkage bar to both of the wipers. See if the bar is disconected from the passenger side. If it is than reconnect it. These are the only two possible scenarios.

Wiper stopped working...what is the problem


Wipers Not Working - Things to Check

To troubleshoot car windshield wiper problems, you need to thoroughly investigate problems with any of its operating parts. Here are some of the things that you need to check to determine why are your car windshield wipers not working.

Check Wiper Motor
The wiper motor is the driving force of the windshield wiper. Feel the motor and listen to a humming sound. If there is no humming, the motor is the problem. Check if the motor is working properly and see to it that its electrical connections are made properly. If you find that the motor is dead and beyond repair, get it replaced immediately.

Check For Break in Connecting Wires
The connecting wires of the motor sometimes go loose and that may cause the windshield wipers to stop working. Also check the battery plug connection which the motor has. Connecting the loose wires properly or fixing/replacing the plug might solve your problem.

Check Wiper Switch
Another wiper assembly part that can malfunction is the wiper switch itself. Check for switch malfunction and if you find that is indeed the problem, get it replaced from a mechanic.

Check for Bent Wiper Arms
Bent wiper arms can cause the operation of the wipers to be hampered. If the wiper arms are bent beyond repair, get them replaced immediately.

Check For Blown Out Car Fuse
A blown up car fuse could be the culprit that has stopped the windshield wipers from working. Check the fuse assembly under the dashboard of the car. Replacing a blown fuse might fix the problem of windshield wipers not working.

Windshield Wiper Sprayers Not Working - Things to Check

Sometimes the windshield wiper sprayer stops working which can be very annoying. The washer mechanism is a self cleaning mechanism for the windshield. Here are some of the things that you need to check in case it is not working.

Check Windshield Washer Motor
The windshield washer mechanism might have been impaired due to the malfunctioning of the wiper washer motor. Check if its working and get it replaced if it is beyond repair.

Check Windshield Washer Fluid Level
Sometimes the washer doesn't work because the washer fluid levels are not filled to requisite levels. Filling in fluid might restore normal functioning.

Check For Broken Washer Hose
The connecting washer hose that connects the reservoir to the nozzle, might be broken or worn out stalling the overall operation. Check the hose for leaks and get it replaced.

Check Washer Nozzle For Clogging
Last thing to check is the nozzle of the washer for clogging. An obstruction in the washer nozzle might be the reason for windshield wiper sprayers not working. Using a pin, clean the clogged nozzle. This might restore the sprayer to the normal working condition.
