What does this switch do?

...not a bad punchline but a real question.


The far switch on the right, it appears to be factory based on the connector that is going to it. I don't know what it does. I'm guessing for the rear wiper? (I don't have a hard top anymore...should have tested it before I sold it I guess)



I'm needing to find an ignition switched 12v to send to one of those other switches to run my air compressor. I was hoping one of those wires going to the connector that is hooked up to that last switch would fit the bill, but I can't seem to get any voltage from any of the pins on the connector that is shown connected to that mysterious switch here:

Rear wiper. Should be Off-On-(On) with the 3rd position being a momentary switch for the rear washer.

Did your YJ come with a hard top? I'd have to check the wiring diagram, but it's possible that switch only has power when the hard top is plugged in.

Defroster switch would have a little amber indicator light on it to let you know when it's on:

Yes, it did come with a hard top...it had wiper but no defrost. I recently sold it. I figured that's what it was. And dang...yeah there must not be a complete circuit without the top maybe.

Am now ditching A/C in favor of an on board air system. Any suggestions for a suitable 12v wire that I could tap into where I won't risk shorting something importing out??

Oh, and if anyone can recommend somewhere to get an air/oil separator that's good for up to 150 lbs of pressure, that would be great!

I'll have to look, I forgot where I tapped power for my compressor. You should be able to tap into any ignition switched power supply for the compressor switch, as long as it's only powering a relay.

As for a coalescing filter, the best price I found was part number 1-816-8923M from KBC Tools. It's a CoilHose filter, the same one sold by Kilby but for $45 less.
KBC Tools & Machinery /USA

I had heard bad things about the plastic bowls melting in the engine compartment, so I went with the metal bowl good up to 250 PSI.

Mine is in the same spot, but is the fog light switch. It also has an on off momentarty positions. When I flip it to on (with the headlights on) it lights up, and now even lights my Hella Fog Lights

Ok, I found a good wire to power it from. It's coming off an unused connector near the cigarette lighter. Have no idea what it was intended to go to. I'll post up a pic tomorrow to see if you dash gurus can tell me if it poses any danger to use it.

I found a filter/regulator for sale local. I'm wondering if having a regulator on the filter would interfere with the pressure sensor switch in any way?...the switch I have is a 110-150. I'm thinking it would be ok and that the regulator wouldn't flow air into the system until the pressure behind it exceeds that which the regulator is set for.

Where'd you get those switches, (the ARB style contura onese)? I'm trying to find some that can be labeled.
