Car stalls when I turn on the rear defrost

For about a week now my lights (headlights, interior lights) have been flickering. Then on Friday, January 9th,2009 I went to turn on my rear defrost (a must in the great white north) the car stalled. She has yet to restart. The rear defrost button has a slight glow to it even though it is off. I've removed the fuse and it looks fine. Even with the fuse removed there is still a faint glow on the button light indicator. I am at a loss. Help!

Right by the hood release check to see if your ground wire is connected
the car wont start because the same fuse and ground wires connect the power windows, rear defroster, and the fuel pump
if the ground is broken the fuel pump might not always work
