Re: Wiper Motor and FUSE!!!
If the circuit calls for a 10 amp fuse, placing a large fuse in the circuit could cause a fire...(I had a '77 Nova with a bad wiper motor, that I used wire to "jump" the circuit (bypass the fuse), and ended up nearly setting the car on fire! ( My only excuse is that I was 17 and thought I knew better than the guy that told me to replace the wiper motor)!
Bottom line is:
Don't upsize the fuse to correct an issue with the component...the fuse is meant to prevent the circuit from overheating, burning the wires and starting a fire. Use the fuse specificed for the application--if it continues to blow, it is alerting you that there is a problem in the circuit that needs to be remedied...
