Wipers are broke in the 00 TJ .

I have a TJ, and the wipers just stopped working, all speeds. I checked the inside fuse, and it was busted, thought that would be an easy fix. I was wrong, pulled in the new fuse and it popped as soon as I turned on the ignition. Tried again just in case that was a bad fuse, both popped loud enough to hear it.

After looking into it a little bit more I realized the problem might be bigger than I thought. The fuse I took out was a 25A and it was blown, and the ones that I was replacing it with were also 25A, and it calls for a 20. But I am not sure where to go from here, anyone have any ideas on where to check on this electrical problem, or have a diagram for the wiring of the wipers?

You can pull the cowl off and check the power distribution to the wiper motor, check the switch on the steering column and the wiring going to that. Do a google search for the wiper electrical diagram for your year TJ. You should find one online.

Isn't the power distribution to the wiper motor after the fuse box?

I have tried a Google search for the diagram, posting on here was a hope that someone else had one, or had seen one.

When a high amperage fuse blows that quickly it often indicates a direct short to ground. You may be isolate it by disconnecting the plug at the wiper. If the fuse no longer blows, then the problem is in the wiper motor. If the fuse continues to blow then a wire is shorting to ground in the wiring circuit including the switch. Unless you are lucky, the only reliable way to isolate it is to unplug each connection in turn in the harness that is associated with the the wiper circuit untill the fuse stops blowing when you turn on the wiper motor.

There is someone on here that has a link to shop manuals in his signiture, I try to find it for you.

OK do a search for jonny jeep the links are in his signsture

You can find wiring diagrams in the online FSMs linked in my sig. The motor is the most likely cause of the fuses blowing.
