Replaced wiper switch already and same thing happens. Joined Jul 13, Messages 4, Can you talk to me about replacing Wjpers wire? Linkages from motor to wipers are free and moving when pushed manually. Go to your T-case I'm almost able to achieve cold fusion now!

Hyundai Sonata - I hate that car so much Anyway, a few days ago we were driving along the highway, turned on the wipers and they worked, then I believe we were accelerating from an on ramp and the wipers just stopped working may have changed the wiper motor to a faster speed at the time.

  • The wipers quit working so I replaced the wiper motor with a brand new one.
  • It can be frustrating when your vehicle keeps blowing your windshield wiper and washer fuses.

Electrical - Wiper fuse keeps blowing! Thread starter Clack Start date Sep 20, Sounds like fun eh? Like all my repair endeavors, lack of funds is driving my need to fix something myself. My 20 amp wiper fuse blows immediately when I put a new one in. I've got a multi-meter and this diagram but don't really know where to start or how to read it. There are some wires coming off the transmisstion auto and the transfer case but they didn't look exposed.

The threads I've read indicate the reverse lights are tied in to this circuit too. I also have a trailer attachment, don't know if that's tied in.

As always, any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks Mudders! Trace the wires off of the fuse panel, sounds like a short somewhere. I would check the trailer attachment for the lights. I have known a few people that used crappy connections there professionals and the connection shorts.

Would be a good easy place to start. I just end couple months ago my wiper journey that start when I decide to replace the 60 series wiper motor with the 62 series.. I would start testing your wiper motor, then I would move to the wiper relay behind the lower dash, blue box right over your right foot when sitting in the drivers seat.. In my case my failure was related to how much effort need to to the wiper motor to move the links.. I end replacing with used decent ones, greasing 'em up..

I'll give it all a shot and post back. Thanks guys. Anything I can eliminate helps. Clack, Try this 1st. One afternoon I went thru 15 or so blue fuses before I tracked down the problem on my 60 blowing the wiper fuse every time I turned on the wipers. Go to your T-case I 'think" on the passenger side, but for sure up high on the T-case. Mine was at the top of the T-case and had rubbed thru the harness. Thanks, John. Joined Jul 13, Messages 4, Agreed with the above suggestion to remove the trailer harness.

Unless you are sure you need this, it is only a potential source of electrical pain. But, more to the specific issue, here's how you narrow down the potential list of culprets Identify ALL of the items that are fused on the same 20a fuse for the windshield wiper. Disconnect all of these items. Install a goo fuse. Reconnect ONE item, if the fuse works, then disconnect it. Keep testing each item in turn by itself until you find the culprit.

Post back with results. Problem solved! Thanks everyone. John McVicker was the closest on the issue. One of them, a green wire, had rubbed raw against the starter. A little electrical tape and a shove of the loom back towards the firewall and all is good!

My 4wd light still worked so I think it was the neutral sensor switch but I'm not sure. It was green. One wire that's about to break off however is the rear most sensor on the passenger side of the transfer case. Anyone know what this is? As to that wire you are trying to ID, sorry I don't know.

Do you have or can you get a FSM. Easy to trace that way Joined Sep 20, Messages I had the same issue. I was travelling and the wiper entire system - back front and nozzle sprays weren't working.

Kept fusing. I had changed 20 fuses in 2 days as it was monsoon and i kept trying to use the wipers. Along with that, my 4WD light didn't work. I thought changing the wiper motor would do the trick and when i changed the motor - there was no fusing.

However once i got ready to leave from the mechanic, the fuse blew. He gave me a temporary solution as i was out of town. Turned out to be an earthing problem since the two have the same connection that's what was told to me by my Toyota mechanic. So i'd suggest check your earthing for 4WD and you'll find the problem.

It may be able to be cleared after a zero point calibration is carried out on the yaw rate sensor with a scan tool capable of resetting the yaw rate sensor Several reasons exist for a blown fuse for windshield wipers and washers. If it only happens when the motor is plugged in, then it's the motor. Home Questions. Anyone know what this is? Clicking noise in back of pick up only forward not backwards?? It was green.

I replace it again, turn on the car, hit the wiper button Turn it all off, the fuse is blown again. Same thing. So I'm thinking maybe it's a short somewhere with the wiring Great, so I take it in to have the dealer look at it.

I get a call this morning "Hey, the thing works fine, we just replaced the fuse" I tell them that doesn't make sense and relay my story. Other than that, am I just totally SOL on this problem? I would check the wiper motor first. Maybe try replacing that and see if it gets better. If that doesn't help, I would just replace the wire instead of trying to find the short.

Grease, dirt, electrical tape, and poor visibility will make it difficult to find the problem. Sounds like water is getting into the circuit somewhere.

It's fine when it's dry, but when it gets water into it you are blowing fuses. It sounds alot like a short, when you go in to look at the car make sure they didnt just put a bigger fuse in. This can cause major problems. It probably only fails when it's raining. Have them replace the fuse and do a water test like for a new sunroof install It'll break.

You could start a nasty car fire. A friend of mine burned down his VW bug this way. I had the same problem with my brake lights fuse in an old car. There was a piece of metal in the trunk that was cutting into the insulation of the wire and causing it to short out and blow the fuse every once in a while. The jiggling of a drive to the dealer "cures" it, but it jiggles it's way back again.

Swines to locate. A friend of mine burned down his VW bug this way What, I did that with my microwave I'm almost able to achieve cold fusion now! I don't want to spend much money.

What would a water test cost me? I know a Ford dealer, I wonder if I should just take this to him in law and that way I'll get my labor for almost free. So I don't want to spend any money on it, but the car itself runs fine Can you talk to me about replacing that wire?

What amp rating is the fuse? Because if you have a direct short or grounding out wire it will still pop the fuse. I wouldnt do anything stupid like stuff a 30 amp in a 10 amp slot though It is a 15 AMP fuse. The last 3 fuses I blew the motor didn't even twitch. Well the wiper anyway. They just blew. Flipped the switch, nothing. Motors draw maximum current before they start to move. Replacing the wire is conceptually simple. Find the power wire going to the wiper motor. Trace it back to the fuse block.

Remove and replace. Now, actually doing it is hard, because it probably winds its way through various wire bundles which may or may not have a wire with the exact same colors , which you would have to rip apart, then repair after you are done. I'd try the motor first. You might have a short in the windings of the motor. If you want to try a quick and dirty test, find a hole in the motor or take it out and take it apart, then hose down the insides with WD and put it back.

Hyundai Sonata - I hate that car so much Anyway, a few days ago we were driving along the highway, turned on the wipers and they worked, then I believe we were accelerating from an on ramp and the wipers just stopped working may have changed the wiper motor to a faster speed at the time. So I get it home by taking the back roads so I can see through the rain and the next day when it is dry out I huddle down on the ground leaning in the drivers door and pull the fuse for the wipers I hate this car's fuse box so much The fuse is blown I go "figures, but whatever" and put in a new fuse.

Turn on the car, turn on the wipers I then think back and recall that this happened a few months ago, and I took it to the dealer and they claimed there was another fuse that had blown which was required for the wipers to work. So when they replaced that it worked just fine. I never did get that fuse's position as the mechanic who worked on it wasn't there when I picked it up and I was in a hurry So I just said "screw it" and start pulling them all left to right.

Cheaper than a new wiper motor and every fuse is fine until I come back to the wiper fuse. It is blown again. I finish checking the remaining fuses, all of them are fine except the wiper.

If you want to try a quick and dirty test, find a hole in the motor or take it out and take it apart, then hose down the insides with WD and put it back. If water is getting in and messing something up, this should hold it off for long enough to prove where the problem is.

Unplug the wiper motor and try it. Plug it back in and try it. If it only happens when the motor is plugged in, then it's the motor. If not, it's got to be traced back to the switch.

You can water test it yourself. Hose the car down in the driveway for a while. If water is getting in somewhere, it will get in and cause the problem. Another short term trouble shooting option might be to try a circuit breaker instead of a fuse in the panel. Do as Auritania says, and a water test is hosing it down to see if the wet makes the problem re-appear.

Sounds like you have a leak in the motor, that's my guess. Oh I DO want to trade the car in, but not until next year. We are moving and not sure if we will be in the city or out a few miles. If we are IN the city then my wife won't need a car and we can get by with just one.

However, if we live outside of the city then we will both need a car. I was also considering getting a small high MPG vehicle for the commute to work as well So I'd hate to sink a few thousand in a used car "just to get by" and then a year from now find out that we need to get a different type of car.
