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

3654 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??

There are no breaks in the grid, I verified this by checking for continuity the connectors are fine as well. This is what leads me to believe that there is a break in the wire that comes out of the body and goes in to the top of the door. Seems a little premature though as the truck only has 100k kms on it. Where is the mercury switch located? I checked the defogger fuses as well. I haven't checked the relay but j have funny feeling that it's fine.
