Ok first up check your headlight dimmer switch and make sure it is turned upwards but not to the top or you will turn on your interior light.Actually you should make sure your parklights are working first since they come on at the same time as your dashlights. :) now to your wipers ,disconnect your wiper motor,put in a new fuse and see if it blows.If it blows then you have a short circuit in your wiring.Iam not sure but the power wire may feed your washer bottle as well.If it didn't blow then the problem will be in your wiper motor.Sometimes the plastic clips break and the linkage jams up and the motor heats up and blows the fuse.SO that should get you going ,if you need more help feel free .Cheers Kevman
