      I have a ’92 Honda Civic and when I turn my wiper switch to intermittent, the wipers only swipes the first time and doesn’t swipe again unless I turn the wipers off and back to intermittent again. All the other functions of that switch works, the mist, washer, and both low and high works. I looked on the wiring diagram and found out that there is power in every wire going to the switch. Upon further research into the diagram. I concluded it’s either the switch itself or the intermittent wiper relay. But the wiper relay is in the Integrated Control Unit but it’s a part of the fuse box and I don’t know is there a way to replace the relay. Any help would be awesome!

        Can you test power out of the module?

          Integrated control units on Hondas of that vintage are a known problem. It could also be moisture intrusion into the fuse box. This sometimes happens after a windshield replacement. The control unit is on the back of the fuse box as you point out. It’s not that bad to replace. You don’t need to disconnect everything, just enough to access the back of the fuse box. Just be sure to disconnect the negative battery cable before you get started. While you’re in there, look for water getting into the fuse box.

          Good luck and keep us posted.

            Sorry for this late response. I want to thank you Eric for the insight on how the ICU might have moisture. I went and check the fuse box and to my knowledge, the windshield has never been replaced, and there was no moisture of any kind. The only thing that came close to that was when I was in school and removing the windshield wiper motor assembly because we were learning about that system at the time. I still don’t understand how the ICU could be the problem if only the intermittent part of the switch works during the first initial swipe and stops. It’s not a huge inconvenience, so I’ve been fiddling with it when I get the chance. I’m thinking more and more that it is the switch.

              It’s very unlikely to be the switch. As you said, it does work the first time, it’s just not telling the wipers to activate again after that. THAT job is suppose to be handled by the integrated control unit as I stated. You can replace the switch if you like but I think you’re wasting your money if you do. If you want conformation of what I’m saying, read the wiring diagram. That should tell you everything you need to know about what’s causing the problem.

              Good luck and keep us posted.
