But....It goes to any extra powered device you want. If you dig around a bit more you will find another wire near there (usually tucked behind the fuse box or just to the upper right of it).
Jeep has these in all TJ's. One is a constant power and the other is a ignition power. They are for anything you want to add to the jeep and wire in. Most don't know about the two wires there.
as for the rear wiper issue you have....what have you done so far?
Check for power at the rear?
Check the switch for good connection?
I checked the power leads that meet to the hardtop and the only power i am getting is to the defoster... i checked the fuse and its fine, took apart the switch and nothing looks burned or worn. need the wiring diagram to see if the switch is getting power..... Im i missing anything?
