I have a hard top for a 1990 jeep wrangler and it has a rear defroster and wiper. This might be a dumb question but should there not be controls for these and if so where at. I have a chiltons book for it...

So the Jeep has a hard top....... or you bought a hard top to put on your Jeep that originally did not come with a hard top. You can forget Chiltons for good info. If there is no switch, the wire harness may/should be there, so you need to install a switch and relay. The harness ends up at the left tail lamp area. The relay is up above the parking brake pedal. 5 wires. Brown. Brown/White, Black/Yellow, White/Black, and Black (ground) The harness should be there to connect a rear wiper switch in the dash.

Rear window wiper doesn't work.

Check 12 V supply. turn rear wiper switch on and test wiring to the rear wiper motor. If no voltage check fuse. If voltage, replace wiper motor.

Hard top wiring

I'm guessing that the top and Jeep are 2 different years.
You need to go to a salvage or junk yard to find the same plug and cut the other one off and splice in the one you buy from the junk yard.

Rear window defroster and also rear window wiper are not functioning. Fuses are okay. What could be the problem?

if you just installed the hardtop you may need to have the dealer update the front control module to let it know they are there
