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

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.

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

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.

Fuse blows for wiper as soon as i turn on the wiper switch


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.

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.
