Mercury Sable
Windshields and Wipers

Why would the fuse blow every time the windshield wipers are turned on in a 2002 Sable wagon?

* in my experience i have found that the wiper motor cover is the problem, you may check your local mercury dealer there was a recall for this. you may also check the wiring I have seen wiring that has been eaten through by mice or other varments. * I took it to the Ford dealer for a dionostic test...$75!!! Turns out the windshield wiper motor had a short in it...Cost me $55 to replace it myself. But,on another note, we did find mice in the engine compartment earlier in the spring! So maybe they caused it!

Windshield wipers are made out of natural rubber. They are made with an adapter that can be used universally with every vehicle. There are 3 types of wipers: standard, curved, and spoiler.

According to one website, it is a good idea to check your windshield wipers at least every six months for normal wear. As for changing them due to weather patterns, if you live in an area that gets a lot of snow and ice, there are winter windshield wipers, also known as winter blades. These are more effective at removing snow and ice than normal all-purpose rain wipers.
