Don't be so sure about the switch.

My 100Q did this, it was the switch itself that was bad. These cars
do NOT use relays for the rear defroster power, the switch controls
all 30 or so amps, which kills the contacts. The light is on a
different wire, so it is not a true indicator of defroster power.

Can you swap the switch with one from another car? I did that,
and immediately found my problem.
