Hi zapatasugar,

I am not sure of the circuit system used for this model but most has a standby current to the wiper when the ignition switch is turned on.

If the wiper motor has any internal shorting, turning the ignition switch on would fuse it.

Disconnect wiper motor connections and test switch. If the fuse don't blow with ignition switch on, try working the wiper switches, if still ok, you need to check the wiper motor assy, possibly a replacement is necessary.
