Hello msebecadwell.
When I see this issue it is usually a partially seized shaft where the wipers are attached. A seized pivot overworks the motor and will pop the fuse.
Remove the wiper arms. There is a plastic cap over the nuts where the wiper arms are attached. Remove those caps, then the nuts.
You can try to get some light oil to penetrate down the shafts at this point but would recommend you continue to pull the cowl off to investigate further. Not too hard to remove these.
After you remove the cowl turn on the wipers and see if you can see where it may be jamming up.Lube everything with light oil (such as transmission fluid)
If it doesn't free up you may need to replace the wiper transmission as an assembly.
Hope it frees up for you.

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

My wiper fuse keeps burning out


If your wiper fuse keeps burning out, your wiper motor might be failing which causes too much amperes required to turn the motor which in turn trips the maximum rated amperes of the fuse.

Follow the wiring of that fuse to your wiper motor to make sure the wiring is not nicked and grounding to the metal. Once you confirm that there is no shorted wire, disconnect the wiper motors wiring connector. Fuse a new fuse and if the fuse does not blow anymore then you isolated the problem which is the wiper motor causing the fuse to blow. Fix or replace the wiper motor.

When diagnosing blown fuses, I usually temporarily replace any fuse in a vehicle with a circuit breaker type fuse. If there is still a short somewhere in the wiring or the component itself in line with the fuse, the circuit breaker fuse will just trip and I just reset it again after I fix the problem. An advantage of keeping to replace a blown fuse while diagnosing.

I replacsed th wiper transmission and now the wiper fuse keeps blowing I did not work on any thing but that


Does the fuse blow when the wipers are off or when you turn the wipers on? A fuse blowing means either a short circuit or an overload. Lets say that your wiper transmission is new and working properly, then an overload is probably blowing the fuse which is caused by the circuit pulling to much current because something is not aligned correctly and moving freely when the wiper motor is turned on. Before you connect the arms to the transmission, move the arm assembly manually with your hand to make sure the wipers go across and back on the windshield. This will verify that the arm assembly is moving freely and not jamming. Then turn the wiper transmission without connecting the wiper arms and see if the transmission is working properly and not blowing the fuse. This will verify that your wiper transmission is not defective. Check the wiring going to the wiper transmission for any bare spots or nicks on the wire insulation. If you have a bare spot or nick that is touching metal, the fuse will blow (this is called a short circuit). If you find a bare spot or nick on the wire use electrician tape to insulate the bare spot or nick. Usually three wraps of electrician tape around the bare spotor nick will do the job. Oh, make sure to replace the fuse with the correct amp fuse. Your car dealer auto parts can provide the information (over the phone) on the correct amp size. You can purchase the fuse at any auto parts. FYI: Too small an amp on the fuse will blow when the wiper is turned on. Too large of a fuse will cause the wiring to burn if your wipers should stop shifting and jam. Good Luck. Hope this helps.

I have audi 14 wiper blades are not working


It is possible that the linkage is jammed. Try turning the wipers on and gently pull the wiper arm by hand to see if it will move. It it starts to move you've found the problem.

If it doesn't move at all and the fuses are ok it is likely the wiper motor that has failed.

My winshield wiper's aren't working because my fuse for it keeps burning out and i know it's not the wiper motor what else could be going on?


Check your wipers are parking in correct position -if there has been slippage at their attachment spigot they may be jamming the motor during use causing fuse failure.
Check for overload on any other circuit that may be sharing the wiper fuse.
Check wiper fuse is a firm fit in the fuse holder, and making good electrical connection.

99 Yukon windshield wipers sometimes won t turn on and other time stop after working


We had the same problem and sometimes they wouldn't turn off. The intermittent wipers were random. We replaced the wiper motor. Be sure to get the motor with two balls on the wiper shaft (one for each wiper arm). If you can't find it, you'll have to change the part out on the new motor. Keep the wiper arms in the same location on removal, or it will jam and you'll have to start over.
