Buy a 12 volt test light ($5-$10) at autoparts or hardware store & the wondering will be over. This is a very common problem with many vehicle owners, and using test light to touch tips on both sides of fuse will confirm if good or not, then when stuck without a map, your not out of luck.

Windshield wiper not working. i beleave its the fuse.wich one is it?

Look in owners manual it will tell you where to find it. If the fuse did blow you should reall try to determine why it blew. If you can't come up with anything and the symptom reoccurs come back and I'll get you threw it.

Check with your local auto parts store (AutoZone, O'Riely's, etc). They may have the fuse list in their computer or they may know themselves.

Do you have an owners manual? It will tell you everything you need to know in there. The fuse box is in the glove box, in a separate door, and your book will tell you which is which.
Chances are it's not the fuse. GM wipers are famous for malfunctioning. There is a circuit board under a plastic cover on the wiper motor that often goes on them. It's 20 or 30 bucks to replace. Or just change the whole wiper motor for $100.

Wipers wont work at all

Sounds like the wiper motor shorted out, and you need a new one. Or the fuse blew.
