Check the fuses carefully. They could have hairline cracks.

Also check the grounds and make sure nothing is wrong with your motor.

Since you have had fuse problems in the past, it would be a good idea to recheck them. If they fail repeated, there is a reason.

Also, take a look at ground G103 which is shared by the wipers and radio and other components. It is under the hood on the driver side inner fender apron about halfway back. You may find broken wires, a loose bolt or corrosion.
