91' Plymouth Colt~~Windshield Wipers NOT Working

02-13-2007, 07:55 PM
Its raining here in California and my windshield wipers keep popping the fuse. I have the book! Yes, I did go through it. But, I can't find anything on troubleshooting this problem.
1. Do I have a Wiper motor?
2. Is my wiring linked with another system like headlights, ignition etc?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well I don't know Colts..but if you have moving wipers, then yes it is safe to assume you have a wiper motor.

As far as what else is on hte fuse, I don't know, but if it only blows when you turn on the wipers, I'd start looking for a short in the wiring to the wipers. If you look through the service manual, you should be able to find the location of the motor. Just trace the wiring, and look for an exposed wire.

Also...moved to the correct section.

Thank you!
There is a lot of wires down there!

I should've been a little more clear with my post. It was my understanding that this car was built by Mitsu and just carries the Plymouth name.

Thanks again.
