Windshield Wipers

Ok, I got my d90 about 3 hrs ago, I'm very excited, however, the fuse to the windshield wipers was blown upon delivery. I changed the fuse, the wipers worked. I then push for the wiper fluid, and then the fuse blew again. What should I do? There has to be a problem somewhere, I just don't know where. If anyone knows a few things to check, please let me know.

Sounds like a problem with the switch to me. Maybe you should take the steering column apart, and inspect the switch for corrosion.

There is a fine line between hobby and mental illness.

Start with less work...

Unplug the wiring at the washer pump. Apply 12V at the pump and see if it works. If not then you're lucky - most likely the pump is at fault.

If it does work, then use a voltmeter on the wiring and see if it's shorted (with a fuse installed).

If not shorted, leave the wiring open and press the switch. If it doesn't blow a fuse then connect a voltmeter at the switch and check it out.

If shorted then fuse will blow. Disconnect at switch and check it out with a voltmeter.

Hope it's not in the wiring.
