Wipers fuse blow

my brother has a toyota paseo and everytime he hits his windshield washer fluid button the fuse blows for the windshield wipers. so now the wipers dnt work until he changes the fuse. as long as he doesnt hit the fluid hes fine. how can that be fixed?

Yes. Somebody have to find the short associated with the fluid pump switch. So you’re talking electrical troubleshooting.

Check the wiring to pump carefully and look for signs of damage to it. You may be able to locate the short. If that doesn’t turn up anything then disconnect the connector to the pump and see if the short clears then. If so, the motor is bad or jammed.
