super beetle 1971 fuses blowing when turning on wipers.

Asked by Sep 27, 2017 at 01:03 AM about the 1971 Volkswagen Super Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I pulled my defroster switch by mistake while driving and it caused a problem.

it made an electrical noise and I promptly pushed it back off. Now, the gen light
is on, but the belt is ok and not slipping, and whenever I try to use the wipers
the fuses relevant to it blows. everything else is ok. I cannot see any burnt
wires...and am not sure what to do. someone told me to change the relay which
is at back near the voltage regulator. any ideas welcomed...thanks.
