Windshield wipers not working and keep blowing fuses

2001 Z3 2.5i, Trying to troubleshoot my windshield wipers. They keep blowing fuses. Motor was working fine then all of sudden it started blowing fuses. Now every time I try and switch them on the 15A fuse blows.

UPDATE: I have been doing some troubleshooting. Fuse 44 blows as soon as I turn the ignition to position one. I have disconnected the ditch in the steering column, still blows. I have disconnected the washer pump, still blows. I have changed the relay, still blows. Only thing left is the wiper motor. I have read that there is a micro switch inside the motor that seems to go bad. Anyone have any experience with this? Is there a wiper control module and if so, where is it located?
