Can you just remove a fuse to disable a function of the car? i.e the rear wiper

Asked by Feb 16, 2016 at 02:18 PM about the 2010 Ford Escape

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our rear wiper stays in on position when car is off and drains the battery. It's happened twice and we just want it disable. Can I just remove the fuse or is it bad to remove one entirely?

sure, no problem at all...can you not simply replace the motor with the defective switch/cam ...of course this repair is a bit of a bother~ so ya go ahead remove the fuse...you have my permission~

Not helpful....are you sarcastic or just easily aggravated? Maybe not answer if the latter is true.

The fuse panel is located on the right-hand side of the center console, by the instrument panel. Remove the panel cover to access the fuses.

Yes. Thank you. I know where the fuse box is etc. but I'm unsure if one can be simply removed to disable the wiper. Can that slot be empty is what I'm saying. Thank you for answering.

even if it's rainy season, there is a product called rain-x that is anerobic and chases the moisture off the glass~ two dollars a bottle ...lasts for years~ at walmart (hate)~

ummmmm....I'm asking about the fuse. Can it just be removed to disable the rear wiper-because its draining our battery.
