remove the connector and hit it with some contact cleaner... I would do that before I got the testlight out

Was it already installed and working properly prior to going down, or are you going from soft top only to a new to you hardtop?

The reason I ask is because if you just installed it yourself, you'll need to have the dealership update your computer system to recognize that the hardtop's been added and activate the electronics for the wiper assembly and rear defroster.

Hope it's something simple.

I can't completely anwer that, it had the hard top on when I bought it but that doesn't mean it came that way I guess.

I had the same problem and it happened to be that the clip wasn't fully snapped into place. Not saying that it's gonna be that easy but check the connection to the hardtop, take it out and then snap it back in, make sure it's all the way in because it can feel like it's snapped in but isn't fully in. I did that and mine started working right away. Hope it helps and good luck!

I wish my glass didn't have the rear wiper at all! In the JKU with the rear seats up (head rests at full attention) they cut rear view mirror picture just about down to half, and the wiper/motor assembly just diminishes it more. I think I used it once just learn where the heck it was. There was a great thread on how to remove the head rests, but I don't want to do that. I have learned that before you fully lock the rear seats up, hold the head rest backward to prevent them locking upright, then bungie or tie them off to rear cargo cleats (PITA if you flip those rear seats up/down a lot).

Just to slightly threadjack you more completely: could just the spring in the headrest mechanism be removed so that when the seats are put back up, you had a choice to leave the headrests down, and seperately lift/lock them upright?

Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity

I wish it were as easy as just replacing motor, I don't have any juice getting to the motor.

can someone take a picture of their plug with the 5 wires coming out of it? I think the wires are in the wrong places. Thanks

I think I figured it out, I think the wires are in the wrong positions in the hard top plug, can someone post a picture of their plug so I can see which color goes where? Thanks
