When you put the wipers on, you positioned them incorrectly so now they go where they shouldn't.
To fix this you need to first make note of which one goes over the other and keep them that way.

Next, put a piece of tape on the windshield where you think they normally go and use that as your target when reinstalling them. Your tape target will probably be 6 -8 inches above the base of the windshield. The wipers should be almost level when at rest.

You'll have to position them with the wiper motor off and in the 'park' position, which means that you turn them on, then turn them off (not with the key) and let them go down to the bottom of the windshield. At that point, you can begin repositioning them.

Good luck!

SOURCE: 2006 sorento wipers wont go down all the way when off

The wiper motor has a park mode built in. It's one of two possible problems. The park mode is bad and the motor needs to be replaced. Usually this can be identified by the wipers stopping all over the place.
The second is that the linkage off of the motor has moved, and it will park in the same spot all of the time. Here you need to release the motor to linkage nut, and move the arms to where they should be, and retighten.

Hook up an Ammeter in series to the negative battery cable and negative battery post.This way you have full battery voltage during testing .
Then remove the switch for the wipers . Watch the meter once the voltage returns to normal you have found your culprit. If voltage doesn't return to normal do the same for the motor and its relay(I would open up the relay and look it over first)
If all this fails I'll send you the diagram.At that point your on a "Hunt for Red October" I'm out of town currently keep me posted.

Windshield wiper fuse keeps blowing

Since you Disconnect the motor also renewed the switch and is still blowing the fuse ,it is obvious that you have either broken wire between the switch and the motor. Try to test the failure by means of a tester circuit. Good Luck.

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.

How do I fix a short in the windshield wiper line? I think that's the problem. Wipers won't work. Change fuse. Turn wipers on and fuse immediately burns out again. Went through four fuses, even trying...

First of all disconnect the motor before you change the fuse and then try it out. If the fuse blows out hten you have a fault in the line that goes through the harness. If you are not able to isolate the line cut off and use a new line to the motor. However if the fuse stays fine the it is confirmed that your motor is short. You will need to remove the wiper motor unit and check inside for a short in the motor winding or the cummutators. USe a ggood multimeter to see for short and if it has burned then you will need to replace or rewind as acordingly to the cost feasibility. If the motor was stuck due to a damaged spiral gear or the drive wheel replace and proceed. Hope you try this out one by one. Good day

Wiper fuse blows as soon as you insert one sure the fuse is the right ampage. second...if the ampage is correct, and it still blows, do the following. Disconnect the ground-side of your battery. Attached test lamp to ground-side of battery. Take probe end of test lamp and touch anypart of the motor body frame. If the test lamp (DOES NOT LIGHT UP), you have an electrical short. Recommend OBD (On-board Diagnostic) analysis test.

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.

Windshield wiper fuse blows everytime I turn the ignition on

Try removing the harness connector to the motor, and see if it still blows the fuse, then you've isolated the problem.
