seems to me you could just make a new ground by running a wire from the engine to the cars chassis.

the wiper motor might just be drawing too many amps, might be time for a new one.

Ditto on the "too many amps" - a faulty ground will not cause a fuse to blow.

Which "main ground" are you referring to, and what kind of problem are you having that you need to know where it is? (I don't know where it is offhand, btw - I'm not just being difficult)

are those on the same circuit? if so, it almost sounds to me like you have a wire shorting on another in that circuit. or, if they arent on the same circuit, they may just be running by each other in the car, and could be touching.

might be time to just start tracing wires, Id start with the wiper motor feeds, trace em all the way back.
