This just started today. Last weekend I replaced the connectors to the rear window by cutting off the old ones and splicing in new ones (the old ones were stiff and would come off the connectors). Now the fuse (15 amp) keeps blowing if I hit the rear wiper switch. Where so I start in diagnosing this?

Was the wiper working ok before you did the wiring? It's possible that the motor is seizing up and drawing excessive current, causing the fuse to pop.

Work fine. Except when I would open the window and the wire would pop off. That's why I cut the wires and addded new ones. That worked as well for about a week.
