Question Problems with electrics

Hiya,I've got a 2000 X 93 convetrible and am having some probs with the electrics.Whats happening intermittently is the wipers/washers,windows and reversing lights don't work.I've checked the fuses and they seem ok.I have pressed all the fuses in the fuse box and some of them clicked in when I done this (loose fuses through vibration?).I was wondering if anyone can help as don't really like being without wipers the others I can manage without this time of year.What has confuddled me is if they were on the same fuse rating/circuit I could handle that but one is a 20 amp and the other is a 30 amp ! Hmmm....has anyone any ideas please ?? I am hoping that after pressing all the fuses it will be ok.... but....Thanks a lot Denny.

If all fuses are OK it must be a relay problem, also you could check all wire connections to make sure they are tight..................Good Luck.

Hiya oldsaab it WAS a wiring fault ! Had to have the dash taken out to find it.apparently a wire had become chafed and was shorting out when the car was turning a corner !!
Anyway all's well now........ Many thanks for your reply....Mel.
