Wipers keep blowing the fuse

Asked by Feb 24, 2017 at 01:16 PM about the 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4 Dr Laramie SLT 4WD Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

wipers blow the fuse every time we try to turn them on. We have replaced the wiper motor, relay switch and the steering wheel assembly and they still don't work. Do you have any ideas how to fix the wipers? Its a 97 or a 98 Dodge Ram SLT Laramie 2 dr extended cab.

You have a short somewhere in the wire that feeds power to the wiper motor.
