Hard top Defrost element?

Does anyone have any clue what tirggers the hard top defrost elment on a hardtop?

is it the heater controls?

It's a YJ, 89..

I'm trying to hook up the hard top wires to no effect..
I;ve got the interior dome light, but hte element doesn't have wire ends there?

anyone got some pictures or colors for wires for me to use?

Please Please. Thnx./

You'll probably have to run your own wires and put a switch in the dash for it.

Mine is triggered when I turn on the interior lights (the dome light and lights beneath the dash.) However, I haven't rewired it in a few years. If I think about it I'll try to wire it tonight and snap a few pics, or at least give you the wire colors.

I got the heater done..

wired it into a 12V that goes hot when you turn on the ignition.. something to do with the seatbelt indicator.. works good..

as for dome light... hahaha.. ill have to make a new post about that.
