The problem I have is I need to figure out what fuse powers/operates the windshield wipers. It's a 1999 Chrystler Seabring LX
JA: Have you checked the fuses? Do you know if there is power to the wiper motor?
Customer: There is power to it, problem is I cannot turn off the wipers.
JA: Are you fixing your Sebring yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes I'm fixing it myself. So far I've tried charing the battery. Long story short the battery got drained by the wipers not being able to be shut off I assume, unless it's something else.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: It's a used v6 and I also had something else wierd happen to it. SOmething behind the CD player poped and then smoke started coming out of the cd player. Whatever it is stopped smoking now, if the cd player took a dump thats fine.

Sure, go ahead.

Based on the wiring diagram it appears that fuse #9 is the power source for the wipers. This is fuse 9 in the interior fuse box.

Please remove it and let me know.

Thanks.

Ok, I will be right back. I will try and identify fuse #9, and remove it.

I believe the cover will have numbers on it, if not, let me know I might be able to find a diagram and determine which one is #9

The irony is that since the car is used the cover for the interior fuse box is missing. Thankfully I was able to remove the fuse. Hopefully that does it. If not I will bug you or someone later once the battery charges. HOPEFULLY though that remedies the problem. Thank you for your assistance Mike. Luckily most of the fuses were labeled 10 or 20 so spotting a 9 was easy.

That's good news, but it's a yellow 20 amp fuse, fuse #9 is it's position.

I assume if the wipers stopped you got the right one, if the wipers weren't going, then let me see if I can locate a diagram just to be sure you got the right one!

Ok, yup I pulled the right one. That would explain why I went where is the 9 they all say 15,20,30 etc. Then I thought oh wait 1,2,3,etc.

Ok, good, I just wanted to be sure!!

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
Also, please remember to rate my answer.
Thanks so much!

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
