The wiper motor is protected by a circuit breaker in addition to a fuse. If the motor overheats due to overloading caused by heavy snow or ice, the wiper motor will remain stopped until the motor cools. Do not continuously operate an overheating wiper motor. The automatic reset type circuit breaker is located inside the motor on the brush holder assembly.
