Sounds like there is a short...and who knows where that could be. However you did say since you change your alternator, I'm really leaning towards a short from there.

    That's what i thought, but there are no loose or corroded connections/ broken wires.

    It might have been a bumped wire? Try to trace it all the way as far as you can. However with alternator, it just plugs right incorrect? And it should only be able to plug in One Direction right? You have it plugged in the right way right? It's got to be able to be able to just be plugged in One Direction. You can't mess that up at least well, I could LOL...check your battery cables?

SOURCE: rear windshield wiper stopped working, its not the fuse

SOURCE: Windshield wipers will not turn off, I've replace the turn signal/wiper switch and still not turning off

Sounds like the PARK SWITCH within the WIPER MOTOR is at fault, Only way to beat it is relay the motor. Hope this helps

SOURCE: windshield wipers keep blowing fuse

SOURCE: 2000 VW jetta VR6 windshield wipers wont work

first try the fues box see if you have a blown fues, next if you put your wipers on can you hear the motor running for them? if you can the linkage has poped off from the motor, its a bit awkward to get it back on and no gaurentee that it will saty on, you might have to replace linkage, or, it might be the cogs on the actual wiper arms have splayed and are now smooth so they dont grip to move, you can take them off by the nut on the arm , get a can (coke can or simular) cut a rectangle out of it the hight and width if the cog, rap it round the cog, (make sure it does not overlap on the ends) and force the arm back into place and then do the nut up, this is just a short quick fix if that is the case you will have to replace the motor, also you can check the relay to the motor in the fues box, give it a tap a couple of times it might work again if not replace it...hope you find these sugestions helpful

SOURCE: windshield wipers won't work on 2003 ford mustang

Check the relay's next to the battery forward to the distro box. on the far left of the box you will see a row of 5 relays 1 & 5 are for fog lights, 2 & 3 are for the wipers. replace them and see if that fixes it!

My windshields wipers wont work


If that happens, your windshield wipers will not work at all and you won't be able to clear any water, dirt, or snow that ends up on your windshield. Replace the windshield wiper motor right away. The windshield wiper fuse is burnt out. When the windshield wiper motor is overloaded, the fuse burns out.23 Nov 2015

My gas gauge is stuck on full in my 2000 ford mustang


You will need to locate the wire to the fuel sending unit at the fuel tank.

Once you locate the wire, disconnect it and see if the guage goes to 'E". If the guage goes to "E", you probably have a bad sending unit.

To double check, ground the same wire to clean metal on the frame with the key in the "on" position (not running). If the guage does not move, the guage is bad. If the guage moves from E to F, the sending unit needs to be replaced.
