Hello everyone, need help finding the wiper motor and blower motor fuse on my 93 2.5. Iíve checked the wiper relay velcroed under the dash. I keep seeing mixed things so if anyone has something similar and can help thatíd be great. Thanks. Threw in a picture of my fuse block inside.

Well I sort of figured it out myself I think. I didnít have the 4.8 or 5.5 circuit breaker in there, or anywhere in the jeep. I stuck a paper clip both ends where the spades would go and the wipers worked. I ordered a 4.8 circuit breaker from quadratec as not even the dealer could have it for 3 weeks.

Should I have any issues using the paper clip? Just in case, I put it in and let the wipers do a full spin and shut it off.

I would not keep the paper clip in there as it isn't a fuse or breaker. If a short to ground were to occur in that circuit while a paper clip is used, you'll probably end up with some melted wiring to fix in the best case scenario..

The vehicle wonít be driven for awhile anyway. Have a few other things to wrap up. In the mean time, I did find a 30amp CB in the same style in my house - it worked but will be replaced with the 4.8 as soon as it arrives.

pretty good chance the fuse is deleted cause it kept blowing...so I would not use the wiper AT ALL with a paper clip, a fused wire would be more sensible
