Re: wipers not working
Near the fuses usually there is series of relays they are usually square black boxes with three or 4 pins that just push in the wipers use one of these try swapping the wiper relay for one of the other relays some times wiper motors throw in the towel which i hope it isnt the case try the relay first good luck glenn..

Sounds to me like one of your positive cables keeps hitting metal somehow and causeing the fuse to blow. Ive had it happen to me when i had one of those amp splitter boxes that i didnt have mounted down properly and it slid into the metal on a seat post and same thing happened.
have you checked wiper fuse? start simple get a 12v light tester and open up cowl to access wiper motor then check if power is getting to wiper motor if isnt check and replace fuse, if persists replace wiper relay, then check to see if power is getting to wiper motor if it is and still no wipers you need wiper motor its simple start at fuse check it then move to relay check it and move to wiper motor check it and your done!
Ouch, what a pain. Silly question, but did you check the polarity of the battery? The other thing to check would be fuses. You have to watch out when you connect the battery terminal, that spark can cause damage. It is best to use a resistor to prevent the spark. Those 2 things are really the only things I can think of.
Initially what can be suggested is to try and redo the fuse insertion again but wiggle them a bit when installed. It might also be of help if you spray the insertion points or fuse clips with an electronic contact cleaner prior to reinserting the fuses. In some instances, the fuse clip/holder need to be manually scraped for corrosion or grime/dirt. It is also possible that a wire might have been dislodged that leads to the wiper motor.
