Unhappy Wiper Fuse keeps blowing out

This is on a Toyota Celica but... should be the same right?

It had to happen when it rained really hard too...

and yes it did snow but I cleared all the snow before operating the wipers.

Both front and rear windshield wipers won't work.

I replaced the 20A fuse and as soon as it still didn't work. Checked the fuse it was blown again.

Is it really the wiper motor?

I put in a new fuse again, and operated the front wipers only and the fuse was blown again....

the windshield washer doesn't work either...

The wipers were working fine for a long time and suddenly it just died..

It sounds like a short.

Is it really the wiper motor? You tell us.

Rear wiper motor's shorted out. The dealer will take it out and charge halfhour labor for diagnostic, etc. fair enough I guess.

The also checked the ABS (the warning light came on)

problems:

Wiper motor installed ($400)
ABS sensor installed ($400) - needs 2 - $800.
