wiper fuse #59 (30A) keeps blowing - can't reset

By the way you have to disconnect your car battery for a minute after you have put everything back because if you don't everytime you test the wipers fuse number 59 (30A) blows. There is some software that needs to be reset and to do that just disconnect the battery.

My wipers are not returning to the proper 'rest' position (failure caused by iced up wipers). I followed the DIY steps above and cannot get my wiper motor to work - fuse #59 keeps blowing.

I have disconnected the battery for minutes at a time to try and reset the software but the fuse keeps blowing.

Does anyone know how I might fix this issue or why the fuse blows?

I tried to hot wire the motor direct from the battery but it won't turn...not sure if I have the right pins...
