Unless you have a loose connection on the multi-pin plug to the

switch,causing arcing.The cause is probably overload on the wiper

motor.Do the wipers appear to be slower than normal when

operating?You could have a faulty motor,they don't last forever.If

you remove the water deflector,(plastic moulding across front

scuttle)you gain access to the motor and linkage.Try a drop of oil

on each of the linkage pivot joints and down the wheelbox shafts

under the wiper arms.Any tightness could cause fuse blowing
