Vauxhall combo van keeps on blowing the windscreen wiper fuse what can it be it works for round about 10 mins then blows again


Sounds like the circuit is being overloaded , have you had any rescent add ons like an alarm or remote start maybe even a new stereo? If no to any add ons you may want to move the wipers off the windscreen and run them for the ten minutes see if the fus still blows. If it does you may want to look into the mechancal arms of the wipers these contain ball and neoprene bearings these can be simply visually inspected . And made sure everythig is tight and appears in order.

The Wiper fuse keeps blowing? Any Ideas?


Does the fuse blow as soon as you turn on the switch? Or do the wipers operate for a bit then the fuse blows? Will the wipers work in intermittent mode? Can you move the wipers by hand? Unless other wiring work has been done (eg radio replaced) I suspect the wiper motor is toast.

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.

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.

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.

Fuse blows on wiper when i start my 1999 dodge ram pickup


Hi my name is Allen!

When the fuse for the wipers keeps blowing, that means either the motor has a dead short within it and must be replaced, or the wiring going to the motor is damaged and shorting out on the vehicle body somewhere and must be repaired.

Here is how you check it; replace the blown fuse, unplug the connector from the wiper motor, then turn the key on if the fuse does not blow then you need to check the wiring to the motor if the wiring is not damaged anywhere replace the wiper motor.
