sonic07, the problem is fuse burns out only when i drive, so it not short circuiting when car is not in motion.
Also my fuses are a bit different. my 44 fuse only takes care of
wiper blades
glove compratment light
radio
user operations ( i have no clue what this is)

sorry i forgot to mention about the wiper blades.
that's what i was thinking when the car was in motion the loose connection where ever it is causing an over load.

ok how about that terminal connector for wiper blades motor.

ok after assuming all connectors are ok no short anywhere. last possibility is the voltage regulator of the alternator is sending out spike while you're driving due to diodes failure but then everything else would go screwy ..... hmmmm

i wish i could be more help. process elimination is taking so much time .... how about dealers don't they have somekind of electronic - electrical diagnostic system ?

sonic has a point about the alternator regulator, but then more than one fuse should blow, no? Do you have an aftermarket deck? Pull the loads out one by one, like take out the glove box bulb and drive around, if problem is gone then there's something wrong with that particular circuit. if not, unplug the wiper motor and do it again. Isolate the problem.

Btw, I get my fuses at the junkyard, free.

you see when glovebox is close there is no power goes to the bulb, so i do not think it si the problem. But could it be there even though it is closed??

you are not the first one that told me to get it of junkyard. but i got no excuse going in there
