2001 XJ - Rear defrost doesn't work, suggestions?

3653 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  NIX
The switch itself works because the little light turns on and it turns itself off after the right amount of time, the rear window just doesn't defrost.

The rear dome light also doesn't turn on when I open the hatch but it will turn on if turn it on manually by pressing it. I'm wondering if there is a break in the wire somewhere?

Anybody else ever experience this problem??

My rear dome light didn't work because of a broken wire somewhere past the left taillight, a fallen apart switch in the lock and the connector fallen off the switch.

Did you put a voltmeter on both connectors at the rear window? The relay is a good possibility, but just measuring will learn what is actually wrong.
