its shorted some where from the fuse to the motor
for sure. the fuse saved the fire.
disconnect the wiper motor and fuse.
and use an ohmmeter to find this short.
0 ohms is short. infinity is good, per above setup./
if not obvious the cause, the wire can be bypassed or unwrapped (hard)
I would check for traces of water that have leaked into the inside fuse panel. You can sometime see rust marks on the metal parts of the dash around the fuse panel. There is a module on the back of the fuse panel and wire connectors that you can remove and inspect for water. If you find water in the fuse panel...the module and fuse will need to be replaced. If no water is found...the circuit that keeps blowing the fuse will need to be traced for a short. I could not find any common circuits for the wipers,power windows or lights.
The power distribution box in the engine compartment # 6 , 30 amp mini - fuse , front wiper motor , front wiper relay , front washer pump , FEM ( also # 7 , 25 amp mini - fuse , rear wiper etc. ) The owners manual shows to disconnect your battery cables before servicing anything in the PD BOX
your relay could be shorted which makes the fuse keep blowing
dis-connect wiper motor and replace fuse and try switching wiper motor on if fuse does not blow motor faulty and shorting out and causing fuse to blow.if still blows fuse must be a short in the wiring from wiper motor plug back to wiper motor switch.
Hello located in your fuse box witch is usually in the glove compartment or drivers knee area if you can not find it owners manual will tell you that location. Fuse marked and wipers and blower this is the fuse that you will want to inspect and replace if blown keep in mind you want to replace with the same amp.Most times if wipers a frozen and you turn them on this usually happens your fuze blows.John
Are you replacing it with the correct amp fuse? Buy a couple of the RIGHT fuses and try this.Your wiper motor may be bad, or the wiper mechanism is binding, causing the motor to over amp and blow the fuse. Try lubricating, if you get to it, the arm mechanism, and make sure it is not hitting anything while it is in motoion. Not familiar with this cars set up. Remove wiper blades, or stand them up and see if it still blows tyhe fuse
