My wipers weren't working. I tested them and found the ground wire was faulty. Have regrounded them and they briefly worked but am now blowing fuses. There is a clicking noise when I turn them on. A freidn suggested testing the internitten wiper module. I can't find it though. Any ideas?

98 Dodge Caravan keeps blowing the wiper fuse. Works for a few seconds then blows.


check for bare wires grounding out , wiper motor failure or wiper shafts seizing up and overloading the motor
using a bigger fuse will only result in the wiring harness burning out and possible fire in the car

Fuse number for winderwiper


Hi Maddie, I'm glad to help! Below, I have posted a diagnostic procedure to see why the wipers are not working on your Dakota. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Maddie!



DIAGNOSIS
WIPER MOTOR

The following are wiper motor system problems,
tests to be performed to locate the faulty part, and
the proper action to be taken. If the malfunction involves
only the delay mode, switch, or wiring, see the
diagnosis for Intermittent Wipe Module and Wiper/
Washer Switch.
CONDITION
Motor will not run in any wiper/washer
switch position.
PROCEDURE

(1) Check fuse 10 in the fuseblock module. If OK,
go to step 3. If not OK, replace fuse and go to next
step.
(2) Check motor operation in all wiper/washer
switch positions. If not OK and fuse blows, go to step
5. If not OK and fuse is OK, go to next step.
(3) Place wiper/washer switch in LOW position and
listen to motor. If you cannot hear it running, go to
next step. If motor is running, check motor output
shaft. If output shaft is not turning, replace motor
assembly. If it is turning, drive link to output shaft
or linkage is not properly connected. Replace worn
parts and/or properly connect drive link to the motor
output shaft.
(4) Connect a voltmeter between motor terminal L
and ground strap (Fig. 1). If there is little or no voltage
(less than 1 volt), move negative test lead from
the ground strap to battery negative terminal. If an
increase in voltage is noticed, the problem is a bad
ground circuit. Make sure the motor mounting is free
of paint and that mounting fasteners are tight. If
there is still no indication of voltage, the problem is
an open in wiring or faulty wiper/washer switch. If a
small increase (greater than 3 volts) in voltage is observed,
the problem is a faulty motor assembly.
(5) Disconnect motor wiring connector and replace
fuse. If fuse does not blow, motor is defective. If fuse
blows, wiper/washer switch or wiring is at fault.
CONDITION
Motor runs slowly at all speeds.
PROCEDURE

(1) Disconnect wiring harness connector at motor.
Remove wiper arms and blades. Connect an ammeter
between battery and terminal L on motor (Fig. 2). If
motor runs and average ammeter reading is more
than 6 amps, continue to next step. If motor runs
and average ammeter reading is less than 6 amps, go
to step 3.
(2) Check wiper linkage or pivots for binding or obstruction.
Disconnect drive link from motor. If motor
now runs and draws less than 3 amps, repair linkage
system. If motor continues to draw more than 3
amps, replace motor assembly.
(3) Check motor wiring harness for short between
high and low speed circuits. Connect a voltmeter or
test lamp to motor ground strap. Set wiper/washer
switch to LOW position. Connect other lead of voltmeter
(test lamp) to terminal H of the wiring harness.
If voltage is present, there is a short in the
wiring or wiper/washer switch. If no voltage is
present, go to next step.
(4) Set wiper/washer switch to HIGH position.
Move voltmeter (test lamp) lead from terminal H to
terminal L of the wiring harness. If voltage is
present, there is a short in the wiring or wiper/
washer switch.
CONDITION
Motor will run at high speed, but not at low
speed.
Fig. 1 Voltmeter Between Terminal L and Ground

Motor will run at low speed, but not at high speed.
Fig. 2 Ammeter Between Terminal L and Battery

Windscreen wipers not working


WINDSHIELD WIPERS


It can be faulty wiper motor or blown wiper control fuse.


Do you hear any kind of noise when you starter the wiper function. If yes then fuse is ok, but issue is wiper motor.

If no movement at all and no noise then its blown fuse or shorted/loose wiper control wiring: -----

For complete troubleshooting i suggest you a helpful link with accurate solutions.

Need to know what connections on wiper motor is hot and ground


shop4class, You didn't mention what kind of vehicle you are working on but the easiest way to check this is to look at wire colors. Ground wires are usually black. Power wires will usually vary in color but the easiet way to be sure is to get a test light and connect one end to the negative side of the battery. Turn the wiper to the on position and start to probe the plug. The test light will glow when you have found the power side of the motor. To test the gorund side of a circuit, you have to reconnect your test light to the positive side of the battery and then probe the black wire. The test light will glow when you found the right wire. Be careful when doing this as you may touch another power wire and start to blow fuses. To avoid this when testing the ground side of a circuit the best thing to do is to turn the wipers to the off position. Good luck with this.

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.

Wiper fuse blows as soon as you insert one


first....be sure the fuse is the right ampage. second...if the ampage is correct, and it still blows, do the following. Disconnect the ground-side of your battery. Attached test lamp to ground-side of battery. Take probe end of test lamp and touch anypart of the motor body frame. If the test lamp (DOES NOT LIGHT UP), you have an electrical short. Recommend OBD (On-board Diagnostic) analysis test.

Ignition problems


the expeditions had a problem with the rear wiper motor grounding out, i would try replacing the wiper motor first, as for the fuse blowing, it is blowing for a reason, fuses don't just blow. if the wiper motor does not fix you may need to have someone go thru the electrical pin point tests to find the short.

Wipers stopped working have replaced fuse but just blew it straight away


This means that you have a short to ground, probably need to replace the switch, or it could be shorting out to the wiper motor.
check your ground wires, or take it to a mechanic, that is what they will most likely test and find.

Wiper won't work


Probable cause: Wiper fuse (No.: 7, 8) blown. If not check for wiper switch faulty, loosen wiring, or ground faulty.
