I assumed that the rear defrost wires in the hardtop glass shared a circuit with the rear defrost blower (which was working) as they are actuated by the same switch. However I guess it's possible they could share a relay but be on unique fuses.
Anyone wise as to how the hardtop wiring works? which circuit is on which pin? where the ground is made?
Although I hope it is a simple as fuses, I'm rarely that lucky; I'm willing to bet I'll be chasing a break in the circuit with a multi-tester.
