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.

Escort 55 1.8d van fuse 25 keeps blowing and cant start my van.circuit says wiper and washers and it wont let me install new fuse without blowing.i have work on monday !Help!


Unplug the wiper motor and replace the fuse. If it works the wiper motor is shorted out. It may also be the wiring rubbed thrue somewhere causing a short.

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.

My saab 900 it developt a problem with wind screen wipers..... its working for 1 second and then its burning the fuse


Its wind shield wipers and its blowing the fuses because the motor might be shorting out on you and causing it to over heat and blow the fuse. The motor might need replaced but also you can check the wires connections with a multimeter.

My windshield wipers are not working. Checked fuse and that is not the problem


Only 3 things can cause that no power to the motor, bad windshield washer switch, bad wind shield motor. Check for current with a volt meter at the motor with the switch on. Then remove the connector and jumper sires to the motor to verify that the motor is functional. Check for current at the switch. If the motor works and the switch has current coming in then the switch is bad. If the motor works and you have current going in and out of the switch then there is a short in the wiring between the switch and the motor.

Cannot get the wind shield wiper motor back in the wind shield wiper stops in the middle of the wind shield


this is normally caused by a bad wiper motor or binding of the wiper gears and linkage arms.
check to see if the linkage arms are tight and not loose. also try and lube up the pivot points.
another thing to check is to make sure you have 12 volts to the heater.

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
