Owners of some 1983-91 S/T Jimmys may comment that the tailgate window defogger will not function.
This condition may be caused by an electrical failure at the tailgate glass support/lift cylinder connection caused by the improper orientation of the
wiring male connector to the tailgate glass lift cylinder. A redesigned glass lift cylinder has been released to eliminate this condition. Previously only one

and left cylinders.
Inspect the wiring for breaks at or near the glass lift cylinder connections.
Repair the wiring using procedures outlined in section 8A of the 1992 S/T Service Manual.
Replace the glass lift cylinder(s) with the redesigned cylinder(s) using correct part number(s) for the right and left cylinders.
