I had fuse 44 blow yesterday. I was driving along and decided to spray the wipers (wipers not currently on) and when I pulled the spray seemed a little weak, so I pulled again and BAM, the radio/wipers go dead! I checked and the resevoir for the fluid was empty, so possibly the pump needed to draw too much current without fluid in the tank.
I checked the fuse cover and radio and the wipers share #44. I filled the fluid tank, changed the fuse and started the car....the radio was still dead and I got out and saw fuse 44 had blown again.
Any ideas?? The electrical problem must be caused by the wipers or the wiper fluid pump. It seems unlikely that the radio had anything to do with it. Any insights/ideas would be much appreaciated.
