Picked up a 96 LX, the rear window defrost/defogger switch will not stay lit. I depress the button, power light lights, but switch does not stay depressed & lite goes off. I checked fuses and connections on the back glass. I even grabbed a switch off an Escort in the recycle yard, and it does samething. I am Ford guy, but this puzzles me.

Hey there Wagonmaster,

Just a thought, but it could be a bad ground, open wire, or a break in the back glass grid - the light comes on, but does not stay on - just enough to light it up but not enough to keep it working.

I am attaching the wiring diagram for the rear window defrost switch for a '96 Escort LX.

Hope this helps.

I'm sure you fixed it by now, but you've got a bad switch I'm sure...

Also the one you pulled had a bad switch as well.

Heck they ALL have bad switches.. it's just a poor design.
