rear window defrost wiring help

I purchased a 2000 hard top and the hard top mopar wiring kit. I am in the process of wiring the hard top. I followed directions perfectly up until the last step.

I am on step 41, I installed the blue/green and light blue/white wires into the instrument cluster plug in spots #3 and #4, and then turned the car on. As soon as I click the switch to turn on the rear defrost, the 10a instrument cluster fuse pops. And there is no light on the rear defrost switch indicating it is working.

I read somewhere that the instructions might be wrong and the wires in step 41 should be installed reverse of what it says. I tried that and it does the same thing, pops the fuse.

Any advice?


EDIT: Link to instructions I am using: http://4x4icon.com/offroad/hardtop_i...ions/index.htm

I have looked everywhere and can't seem to figure out the problem. Can anyone help me figure out the issue?

Hey, thanks for your reply!

The instructions were for 97-99, one spot in the directions said to do different things depending on your year. But from the directions it looks like most jeeps 97-99 are the same.

How do you think I should go about step 41, the one I am stuck on?
