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.

Fuse blown WINDSHIELD WIPER


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)

My 2001 ford excursion keeps blowing fuses to the windshield wipers the moment I go to turn them on, any idea on what to check or replace to get rid of the short, or where it might be?


Doing electrical testing is the way to find the short , not looking for magical fixes on here ! If you don't know how to use a volt meter an read a wiring diagram , your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

Wind shield wiper blowing fuses


You have a short circuit to ground when the switch for the wipers is turned on. It does absolutely no good to keep replacing the fuse until the short circuit has been located and repaired. I guess you are just starting to figure this out five fuses later.

The lesson here is that fuses do not cause electrical circuit failures. Electrical circuit failures cause blown fuses. There are many people that do not understand this.

If the fuse remains intact until you turn the switch on, you will find the problem between the wiper (combination) switch and the wiper motor assembly or the wiper motor itself.

I have checked the wind shield wipers motor to try to find out what is shorting out the fuse. Where could the short be located that is causing the wiper fuse to blow?


You need to isolate the problem by disconnecting the windshield wiper motor. If the fuse does not blow with the wiper motor disconnected the problem is in the windshield wiper motor. If the fuse still blows with the motor disconnected, there is a 12 volt wire shorted to the frame. You will most likely need a set of wiring schematics to trace down the short.

Changed wiper motor when it blew the fuse. it worked about a day and now it blows the fuse even with the wiper switch off in need of the wiring diagram for an 87 dodge dakota wiper assembly


YOUR WIPER SWITCH HAS A SHORT OR THE WIRING GOING TO THE WIPER MOTOR HAS A SHORT.CHECK WIRING FOR BREAKS AND OPENS THAT WOULD CAUSE SHORTING.

My windshield wipers suddenly stopped working on my '96 Jeep Cherokee. I replaced a fuse that was bad, but they still don't work. Help!


if the fuse failed then that means one of few things...

1.) motor has failed causing excessive current draw
2.) circuit has direct short to ground
3.) short to ground that caused fuse failure is now an open

you need to check for power and ground at the wiper motor

keep us posted

Keep blowing fuses for the wipers, have replaced


Your wiper motor is about to go out, if it hasen already, wiper motor pulling to many amps will cause the fuse to blow.

2001 sonata wiper fuse keeps blowing


If the fuse blows as soon as you put it in and the wipers are off then you have a short between the fuse block and the wiper switch.

If the fuse blows only when you turn the wipers on then more than likely the wiper motor has shorted and burned out. This one is very likely if the snow storm was heavy and you was driving in it. Cause- Moving large amounts of snow and ice off the window puts a heavy load on the wiper motors.
