Welcome to the forum, Usually when this type of fuse is bad you can tell by looking at the middle part of the fuse (the part i have circled in red). If a fuse is bad, the small wire/filament will look melted or burned and can no longer make the connection between the two larger conductors.

If your testing a fuse then use your voltmeter...

Check the fuse, then check the motor. probably out due to failed gears\bearing in it given the noise you described.

Same thing happened to me not long ago. I ended up replacing the motor even though I did not have to (new to me 97 with 160k so figured replace it anyway).

After removing the cowl (between the hood and windshield) to get at the motor I found that one of the mounting bolts had backed itself out a bit and was rubbing on one of the arms. You could see the groove it was wearing in the arm. Got bad enough that it caused the whole thing to stop.

Long story short check the simple things first!

I'm sorry ,I don't know what you mean when you say mode name or code name. Are you referring to the part number? In my area a replacement motor should cost about $80

just go to an autozone,pep boys,napa or dealership. give them the make,mode,year info and they will sell you a new one. i thought my motor died last year and when i pulled it to take to the auto store i started messing with it figuring i can't break it anymore than it already is. ended up the stater was all crapped up from rust.cleaned it out and works like a charm.pain in the balz getting it all back together though

Mine did the same thing. I tore it apart. I found the rubber boot surrounding it does a fantastic job of keeping moisture inside the motor. Like Leeroy Jeepkins, I found rust and crud inside. I just cleaned it up, put it back together, threw that rubber boot away. It has been working great for years now.

Good luck.

Not much of a teacher....

I just took the black cover off the motor and CAREFULLY cleaned everything and put it back together.

Thank you Leeroy for the tip on cleaning out my wiper motor. Never thought of doing that. One of the magnents inside the cover had come loose. Cleaned out the inside of the case, re-glued the magnent back to the cover, cleaned up the armature & all works well. Good for another 140,000 miles. ThomasP
