    I have a 1998 e36 when the hardtop is on and I press the button to use the heated rear screen the hardtop lights come on rather than the heated screen.

    Any ideas how I can sort this out?

    It sounds like there is no earth on the roof and it is backfeeding through the interior lights.

    where the hard top locking pins go down into the car,one each side remove the trim and down near the bottom of the pins you will find the wireing you will have to work it out from there.i had this problem with my old 328i vert,a little time and effot all will be well.(i remember you need to look at the off/side one for your problem)
