I have a '99 Taurus 3.0 V6 24V recently the wipers, interior lights, windows, and the key fob stopped working, but can lock it with the switch from the inside. I got power to the wiper motor and the window switches, windows will go up and down only with the power probe. 5 amp fuse keeps burning out right when I put the fuse in, it's the fuse for wipers and VAPs. Also, my question is what is VAPs?

Any repair ideas?

Sorry if I posted in the wrong area, I never use forums.

When you hooked up the power probe did the wipers motor function ?

I would disconnect the wiring harness at the wiper motor. Then put in a new 5 amp fuse and see if it blows.
If it does then their is a short in the VAPS system.
If if does not then their is a short in the wiper motor circuit.
