YJ hardtop: Rear defrost problems

As it gets colder I realize my hardtop's rear defrost doesn't work.

I checked the wiring harness. It goes from the switch in the dashboard, to a connector on the steering column, to the back of the jeep were there is another connector between their and the hardtop itself. All things are hooked up.

When I flip the switch it doesn't light up, stay in place, or do anything.

Any ideas?
