The fuse is fine if the wiper work at any time. Your issue sounds more like the wiper switch went bad.

Front wipers stopped working


There may be a relay under the hood.
Be advised, many cars & trucks, in particular Ford, had problems with wiper motors and window winder motors. I had thought their problems were remedied by 2011, but perhaps not.
If you cannot get this fixed quickly, try the "Rain-ex" products, those will keep you windshield clear until you get the wipers working.
God bless your efforts.

Wiper motor will not stop running


The wiper motor takes its orders from the wiper switch which is probably faulty. It wont take long to ruin your windshield unless you live where it rains constantly. It you're sure it wont rain you can pull the fuse out until you can get it repaired. Probably wont be cheap as it's also probably on a multi function switch. If you have a friend that knows how to install a toggle switch to turn the power on and off to the wiper motor and money is a problem then that's the way I would go. Under $10 solution as opposed to what will probably several hundred $

None of my wipers work. We were driving in the rain, and both the from and back wipers just quit. I did not check the fuses because they are 2 seperate fuses.


Both the front and rear wipers have a couple things in common. They are both powered by the 'Wiper System Relay". This relay supplies the power to both the front and rear wiper fuses. I would check for power at both of the fuses. If there is no power, then there is a problem with the relay or the relay circuits. The relay and both of these fuses are located in the underhood fuse/relay box. Please note that there is a "Wiper System Relay" as well as "Front Wiper Relay" and "Rear Wiper Relay" Why??? I don't know...some engineer at Saturn worked out his job-security with this one, I guess...

Any way, the Wiper System Relay feeds both of the fuses which, in turn, feed the two other relays.
The primary side of this relay is controlled by the Ignition 2 circuit from the ignition switch, so the relay is energized any time the ignition switch is on. (sounds like a good way to overheat and burn up a relay to me...but who am I??? I am not an engineer, I just get paid to deal with their stupidity)

The secondary side of this relay gets its power directly from the battery...no fuses in between, just a fusiblelink. This link is not the problem because there would be a whole bunch of other stuff not working - including your engine computer.

If I were to take a guess, it would be the relay.

Let me know if this helps you. Take a moment to rate my solution this will let me, as well as other know.

Hi I have a 1998 Jepp Cherokee and my windshild wipers will not shut off.


sounds like you've got a bad wiper switch,unfortunatlly theres not much i can tell you other than it needs replaced. you can try wiggling the wiper switch, turning them off and on while wiggling it.the only other way you can turn them off is to pull the fuse out until you can get the new switch.fortunatly they are on a fuse all by theirself.so pulling the wiper fuse won't hurt. meanwhile if it starts raining,put the fuse back in.hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

May want to look at replacing the wiper circuit board.It is located on the firewall adjacent to the wiper motor and has a some what square black cover with 3 torx screws and wireing harness pluged into the side.We had a truck that every time you washed it the wipers would stay on until it dryed out.You can try removing it and spaying it down with contact cleaner just watch the brease on the two contact tips.Well hope this helps.
