The rear wiper is on the right stick coming off of the column. There's a small tab that you push forward. No idea about the U connect....

From the manual:


REAR WINDOW FEATURES — HARD TOP ONLY
Rear Window Wiper/Washer — If Equipped
A rotary ring switch on the control lever (located on the right side of the steering column), controls operation of the rear wiper/washer function. Rotating the center of the switch up to the “On” position will activate the wiper. Rotating the switch ring beyond the “On” or “Off” position will activate the rear washer. The wash pump will continue to operate as long as the lever or ring is engaged. Upon release, the wipers will cycle three times before returning to the set position.

If yours won't work, check to see that it was connected when the hardtop was installed. The connector is at the rear corner, driver's side, just inside the hardtop.

Sounds like you need the Mopar kit to add the harness and controls for the hardtop

Yeah, sounds like your Jeep didn't come from the factory with the hardtop, it was added later (without the other parts to make the wiper work).

And I believe the computer needs then to be flashed to recognize the feature.
