How can you tell if its a motor or fuse when you repair windshield wipers. We bought our disabled daughter a car and the windshield wipers do not work when we got it from the dealer we knew we would have some repairs but they had disconnected the windshield wipers and when we changed the fuse the motor ran and then the fuse blew. If rust is there will this make the motor stop. We have limited funds so if you could direct us in the right way I'm sure we can get this fixed.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi:
Chances are the motor is drawing too many amps or there is a wire (near the firewall) that has shorted. If you replace the fues with a good one, disconnect the motor and turn the power on to the wipers, dies it still blow a fuse? If not, chances are it is the motor. If there is a short, it will blow the fuse with out the motor connected.

Let me know what you find.
