I'm sure you've already checked your fuses as it should be a protected circuit. I've had fuses melt but never pop, and this could be your case as well.
Most likely it's the wiring on the way to the ...

I've never seen a deflector specifically marketed for AW side windows, but I'd imagine that would help. Maybe look for sunroof deflectors in the right size...they usually just double side stick tape ...

As far as I know it is the original pattern. I had the top resprayed to match. I thought about going ...
