Fuses dont blow for bad connections, the blow because of a SHORT. Disconnect the wiper motor and then turn the switch on. if all is ok, then connect the wiper motor, if the fuse blows, the wiper motor MAY be bad

Shorted wiring in harness ? Unhook battery check resistance from fuse to ground should be open with motor unplugged and no battery hooked up.

99 dodge ram van 1500 v6 keep blowing fuse for parking and dash lights as soon as I turn on parking lights. Where are the ground wires for the parking lights?


have you recently replaced the bulbs in the rear for the tail lights Check to see if you put the right kind of bulb in. I myself have done this. Most ground wires are in the rear going from the harness to the frame.

The wiper controls are not working but the other controls on the modual still work


assuming the fuse is good, you can test the wiper motor by applying ground and 12v from the battery directly to the wiper motor. ensure you have the correct terminals on the motor for ground and power. there will usually be 2 or 3 power terminals and 1 ground terminal which has a black wire connected to it. the other terminals are for the different speeds and supply different voltages. you can connect to any of these wires. if the motor works then the switch is bad.

Tail lights and dash lights out in 96 dodge ram. all other lights work. already replaced headlight switch. still no tail lights


does the fuse keep blowing ?? it is also on the same line as the cigarette lighter if the fuse is blowing check that there is nothing stuck in the lighter socket that is shorting it out. Could also be a bad ground wire not makeinig contact.

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.
